Back when I worked for Honda those 350 bikes were the go to rides for first timers.ColeBModeratorJune 2, 2019 at 11:58 amPost count: 1358CorporateModeratorJune 2, 2019 at 12:10 pmPost count: 711BBWBParticipantJune 2, 2019 at 1:09 pmPost count: 730
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.

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.MikeKParticipantJuly 27, 2019 at 2:29 pmPost count: 142
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.MikeKParticipantJuly 27, 2019 at 2:46 pmPost count: 142
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!MikeKParticipantJuly 27, 2019 at 2:53 pmPost count: 142
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.FranzKeymasterAugust 7, 2019 at 3:11 pmPost count: 2989
