    The paint job was done by Eric Lussier, 2nd Avenue Scooters. He's a one man shop and is really talented. He's does work for local people as well as out of state. What I like about Eric is his preparation. All the body work is absolutely perfect, the pinstripes spot on and the finish is unbeliveabe. On top of that, the price was very reasonable. I was originally referred to Eric by our local BMW shop, they have worked with Eric alot.

    His phone number is 602-799-0252.

    They're marked "Links" (left) and "Rechts" (right) inside. Sometimes, with indifferent previous owners, you can end up with two of the same, like I did. In my case, two 'rights' did make a 'wrong'.

    Lets go for a ride some time.
    You have good eyes, I'm just north of the phoenix mountain preserve in the 24th street and Cactus area. What kind of BMW did you buy?

    Hi Bert,
    I bought a 74 R90/6. It's a good bike, and I am learning it's nuances. I was going to call the guy you recommended for the painting to see if he can get a dent out of my gas tank. It looks like a previous owner took a handlebar end into it.

    It's a 1976/6 with a million small changes, major updates and customizations.

    Beautiful bike

    Thank you, Bert! Sounds like a rare combination of good quality and reasonable pricing!

    I know I already posted pics of my '78 R80/7, but last night I took the fairing off while trying to chase down a squeaky sound, and boy is that a sexy machine when you take all its clothes off!

    Nah, it looks good, for sure...but I got enough of being a tough guy when I was half my age. I live in Kansas, where we get ALL the weather, and I like to ride every possible day of the year. The fairing is ugly, but by cracky, it makes for a hell of a comfy ride.

    "ugly" but so unique!! That Wixom Ranger on your R80 is so retro cool!
    All you need to do is figure away of removing and reinstalling the fairing quickly. In the day I had a CB500T with a Wixom rigged up with wing nuts for quick removal.
