Juss Kickin' Tires

I need another one. I think I want a 1960 to1990s R80 or larger. I'm not sure which year and engine size to target. And also, any problem years or models I should steer clear of.

Re: Juss Kickin' Tires

If you're looking for a cool vintage BMW that you can actually ride and don't have to work on much then look for any year /5.

Good looking bikes, electric start and there are conversion kits to replace the old style ignitions. Lot's of parts availability and they're not very expensive to buy.


a nice example




Here's mine. It's far from stock but I like it.

Thanks for the compliment but I can't take any credit. I bought it just like that from a retired SF Fireman. He really does nice work.

Re: Juss Kickin' Tires

Dear Mr. Shred: Please stop posting pictures of your beautiful /5. Jealeousy is an ugly emotion and I cannot see that bike without major pangs of jealousy.
