    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

    That z50 is built well and a very fair price. That is setup for adult riding

    I like that. Looks like it needs a very short rider though.

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

    Hell, if I was selling those I’d deliver for the cost of fuel. You never can tell, maybe the seller has a good reason to come to Junction. Might be worth the phone call ?
