    Not mine, but spent some time on it and always liked the picture. Many may recognize the bike from travels in Europe.

    Well, I'm unemployed and the next job is not coming soon. I have been looking for ways to make extra cash and have been trying to flip motorcycles to see a small profit but that ain't working out that great. I'd rather only deal with airheads but
    (A) most are going up for sale at twice what they are worth or
    (B) if they are priced right they are
    (B.1) absolute junk or
    (B.2) sold within hours or less. I'm trying to work with '70's Hondas too but that is really risky.
    Anyways, what this leads into is yesterday I called on a CL ad for a 1976 R75/6 and I called within the 1st hour. I left a message. I emailed. I left another message. I emailed again. I left a message. I went to bed and gave up. I woke up and there was an email apologizing and the owner would be calling me sometime this morning. Is this a blog or a thread? Sorry, ADD and on a scale of manic to depressive I'm manic right now. So, long story short, I drove an hour to pick up my 'new' BMW. Problem: I do not want to sell this one, something else has got to go. For a guy that grew up in the '70's this is a hot rod BMW. Somebody really took care of this one. It came from California, spent some time in Neenah WI and then the last five years in a very nice basement waiting to be cafed. This is one of the cleanest 33 year old motorcycles that I have seen. The Lester mags are cleaner and nicer than those on my 1980. Dual-plugged heads, electronic ignition, Koni shocks, San Jose anti-bottoming kit, nothing is missing, nothing is oxidized, comes with a big Clymers manual AND a BMW /6 service manual, all of the tools are there, crash bar, the Luftmeister is off but the lights have not been reinstalled. The bar-backs, American bars, Luftmeister and luggage rack will go on eBay but everything else is woot!! OK I'm happy.

    Sorry to hear you're out of work. That bites.

    Great looking find - I can see why you want that one. A pearl, for sure.

    Warm regards from the swamp known as Houston.

    You beat me to it!

    But, I was really just window shopping anyway.

    Glad you like it.

    Just bought this lady in Maryland and drove it back to Chicago. It's my first airhead and I'm in love. I think I'm going to kick my girlfriend out and park the bike in the bedroom.

    Today, on the Blue Ridge Parkway:


    Today's ride was the maiden ride after a total restoration. It sure felt good!

    Just now starting to post a few comments and figured I better present my credentials. Been riding this R90S for about 6 years now. Bought it off my father who had assembled it from a project bike back around 96. This shot was taken last fall in Bluegrass, Virginia.
