So just got myself an almost complete BMW 1983 R65 (previous owner needs to send the fenders, but everything else seems to be there.)
Loved the story.
Mine is a basket case. Was advised to put it together to ensure the thing works, and then use the colder NYC months to make her pretty.
So on we go.
I would be lying if I din't mention that I already sourced the leather from a tannery upstate.
