Won't exactly take your breath away, and shitty quality being on the side of the road with a soggy point and shoot, but that ODO is showing zeros the third time since new there. 200,000 miles, more like 220,000 now, God bless her.

Here's to you baby....

For the record, I selected second instead of third as I entered the corner. It may look like I'm backing it in, Motard style, but in fact I'm desperately trying to hang on!
The clutch being pulled in clued me in that you were having a moment. A lot of people would of let that get out of hand completely IMO! Good save!

Wow. That conversion bike is -indeed- incredible. Any more pictures?

Whoever asked about the R7, there was a fairly extnsive write up on it in the Vintage BMW Motorcycle Owners Club forum some time ago. Interesting that no one really knew it existed for sure because hints at it's existance where only artist renderings. It quite surprised many people when it was found in boxes.

Maybe I'm a cynic, but there doesn't look like enough room for a cam on top of those heads.
I reckon it's just cosmetic.

If it is cosmetic, they sure went through a lot of work to move the starter.

Yeah... I was thinking the same thing. why would someone go through all that trouble to build something that doesn't work?

Photos of that bike have been floating around the internet for almost a decade/maybe longer, so one of our European members must know something about it.
Maybe!

The BMW OHC bikes are functioning machines. There are several designs that have been done on the 1955-69 twins and also the 1970 & up engines.

I saw and heard run the 70 & up versions some time ago in Germany. They seemed to be well thought out design modifications to the stock engine. Since those engines have the cam placed below the engine the design has some challenges. The pre-70 twin mod'd engines have plenty of room for the replacement geared shaft.
