My first post ! Although I recently joined MOA, my first BMW was a 1960 R60US back in 1972. Well, I retired from Lockheed last November, and I am an amateur wrencher - very amateur. Today I bought a 1977 R100RS that was last registered in 1987. The fuel tank is completely rusted out - it was parked with fuel in it. Otherwise it is complete, including tool kit and bags.
What should I attack first ? I do not know if the motor is frozen. It has oil in it an I do not see water. Just got it home tonight. unclear how to attach a photo...
Ready to get some good suggestions as I am sure you folks have "been there already". I elected to put some of my 401k into West German steel and aluminum rather than Wall Street. Thanks / Ron
