    '76 r90/6

    this one is new to me last november. last BMW i had was a '75 R75/6 for the latter half of the '80s. i wanted something identical, to re-live my younger days a bit. this was pretty beat when i bought it @ 67k miles.

    i spent the winter doing things within the range of my limited abilities: points, plugs, condensor, all fluids changed, new throttle gears and cables, new choke cables, new tach cable & grommet, completely rebuilt the carbs, new shocks, new seat, new battery, new headlight reflector, rebuilt front caliper, re-sleeved and rebuilt M/C (by apple hydraulics), new upper brake hose, flushed tank & checked lining (still looks intact), rebuilt one petcock & replaced the other, new tires, new rear brake shoes, wheel bearings replaced (by tom cutter), checked rear splines (lots of wear left on both mating surfaces).

    i have a second set of heads that i sent to tom cutter for rebuilding. just got them back but i will wait til next winter to fit them, as i want to go through the rest of the top end at the same time, including checking the connecting rods.

    oh yeah... my tach went haywire a few weeks ago, so i will send the instrument cluster to terry vrla in a week for repair and calibration.

    it's been fun working on her over the winter, now i am ready for a summer of enjoyment with hopefully no major surprises.

    Quite awhile ago I posted a picture of my 1973 75/5. It was standing alone in a surprise bit of snow. That wonderful old bike took my wife and I to hundreds of places throughout the U.S. and now awaits some modest tinkering before heading out again on some adventure. My wife, Mary, is an artist and has recently been exploring the combination of abstract and realism (maybe there is a more precise word for it but I don't know). Subsequently, she decided to explore this using the old /5 as a model. Thought that I would share this. (note: using this design for some other posted stuff but this is the original). - Bob

    Mary and I talked about prints/posters but we haven't broken out of the discussion stage. It could make a fine poster with some appropriate airhead descriptive titling. Right now we are using it for our Salty Fog Riders t-shirts (available for purchase but if there was enough interest (or we stimulate enough market interest) then we can scout some cost effective pricing around production and shipping. Thanks for getting us thinking about that again. -Bob

    (I think that you are referring to the painting) Looking at doing canvas prints for September. Not sure about market but will give it a try. Will likely have appropriate lettering as one option and plan print without lettering as the second. If that all goes forward, I will post here. As of now it is being used on our Salty Fog Riders shirt (watch for the shirts at the RA in June...... wish that we could also scoot west to catch the MOA but you may see some folks wearing them there anyway)- Bob
