We have a ripple. Seems the VIN number says the bike is a PD. Seeing as its now dressed in the full Bumblebee, it's obviously been messed with.

Did they ever make a bumblebee PD?

A BMW service tech shows the VIN number is associated with a driveshaft replacement at 35k, then the trail goes cold.

Also the word is that through the late 80s onward the frame and engine number on R100s were not matched -- that sound right??

I was thinking ~$4k for a ~14k mile bike was a good deal but now not so sure what I've got here. At least the drivesahft was replaced...at some point. Past that it's a question mark.

What says the ADV forensics squad?
