    That Whizzer was the coolest thing there! Lots of neat iron though, I can see why you hung out for awhile.

    That’s funny John. When I was a mechanic on Hondas, we called them the bike of 31 bugs. Lots of problems with that engine.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Here’s my 2000 BMW F650 when I picked it up.  It had very low miles, around 4500.  It had been sitting for years and had a few broken odds and ends.  I rebuilt the carb, flushed the tank and it ran great.IMG_1832

    I made some parts like the chainguard, aluminum heat shield for the exhaust, adapter for a Acerbis fender and the wind deflector, then painted it Sage Green like a Bay Westy.IMG_1401IMG_0333IMG_0332IMG_1854IMG_0367IMG_1910

    I rode this thing almost daily last summer and had a lot of great miles.  Though it’s nothing special, it’s one of the best riding bikes I’ve ever had.  It does most everything pretty well and handles like a BMX bike.  Unfortunately it was stolen in the Fall.

    I got a call earlier this year from the State Patrol telling me they located the bike, but it was in terrible condition.  Anything that took a key was broken, the wiring was completely f*cked, tires were shot, tail light and fender smashed and it had another 4000 miles on it.  At least they had a good time!

    I should have called it done, but like I said, I really like the bike and you know how things grow on you…  It’s taken a few months but I found some workarounds for the expensive  and sometimes obsolete BMW parts with aftermarket goods and some home made items.  This time it’s another Bus color, Aswan Brown from a middle year Westy.  I also enlarged the windscreen a bit and built in a drink holder for those long, hot rides.  Looking forward to putting many more miles on this thing.  It’s small, quick, nimble and doesn’t take the commitment of a full-size, lunar lander GS.  Hope you dig it.IMG_3267IMG_2959IMG_3272IMG_3831IMG_3832IMG_3835IMG_3836IMG_3837
