Airhead Flea Market Thread (closed and archived)

posted this in the olds cool market last week but never heard anything from anybody. thought i'd give it a shot in the new fancy airheads one!
i'm looking for the thin black trim pieces along the bottom of a /7 stock seat. if anyone has a junked out seat and wants to make a few dollars, i'd love to have the trim strips from it. thanks!

WTB: 38mm ate caliper

Tearing into (through) my recently aquired 1974 R75/6 and I now know why the brakes were downright scary on my quick ride around the block ... my front caliper was pretty much seized. Piston is rusted/pitted and the outside landing (outward of the seal) is corroded on the caliper body. I don't think it is salvageable.

Does anyone have a serviceable (or working even better) 38mm caliper lying around looking for a good home? If so, please let me know.

Thanks,

Chris

A 40mm will work just fine. Possibly better, I don't know.

Thought about the 40mm, I'm sure it would function, but I think I would have to switch out the master to the larger one for it to work well.

I did manage to find a 38mm one on ebay for a decent price that looks good.

R100 / R 75 big bore as new

2 Bikes both rebuilt new paint, new engines, transmissions, all new hard to find parts.
Buying two bikes one finished /5 75 bored to 850 newly done engine. One R100 new engine nicasil cylinders all new parts to be finished with 1980's ignition as all brakes parts. Both bikes from 70's.
Redone by older BMW mechanic

Interest is there interest in bikes in fresh or new paint new engines new parts, it goes on.

But as I am interested I may not need two more bikes.
Just looking to see what interest there is, before I jumpin.

I'm interested in knowing what the interest you're asking?

I had the same question. I reported it. It sounded like somebody who had a line on a couple of bikes and was thinking of turning them over for a quick profit. If this is not the case then please explain.

See your point may of been better to wait just thought I would ask first.
Not everyone is looking for new paint as yes it costs more. One I would keep the other would use as a trade in if there was no interest. Asked here as this group seems to know the older bmws. that is all

Is there interest in a as new R100 engine bike frame.
As I would love to keep them if they come my way.
Really do not have the space to keep 2 more bikes long term.
There are a lot of /5 /7 bikes sold but rarely do I see any as new in new paint.
The seller will not separate bikes parts tools etc.

Just asking to see what interest there is in older new bike.
May use as trade in for new GS.
Does that answer your question?

Well it's kinda hard for anybody to say just what interest there might be from a group as loosely formed as this one. There is interest always. The question really is; Is there money. Will it sell. We go out of our way to look at bikes all the time. Will somebody buy one of these? I don't know. Same thing with the tools. If you have the shop tools and tool kits from the bikes they sell. But not always for a lot.

You need better descriptions, year, model, condition and detailed pictures to generate very much interest. At this point it's rather pointless.
