Hello I have been looking at buying an airhead for a while (i posted on this forum already asking advice)
I found one (actually someone from this forum found it and sent me the link) that seems pretty interesting
1978 BMW R75/6
cosmetically ok, not great, it has a non matching windjammer.
I went to see the bike, all seems good to me with the exception of the following and i would like to hear some more experienced people tell me if i'm heading in the right direction or not.
The is an oil leak coming from under the bike, initially i thought it was the oil pan gasket, but upon inspection i noticed that the oil comes from a wire/bolt on the left side (maybe the oil sensor). Initially the oil was just one drop, but after starting the bike i saw another 6-7 quickly coming down (especially after i pushed the throttle at higher rpm)
here is the image of the bolt
here is the image of the area above the pan, which seems to have quite a bit of oil
The bike seems to take a little to warm up, is 2 minutes with the choke on too much before being able to have no hesitation, or common for this kind of bikes?
When the bike was started some water dripped down from somewhere on the left side. I think it was from one of th exhausts, but the water was more or less near the center of the bike, odd. Can someone tell more about this? Common? Scary?
Bottom line, Does it seem like a decent bike for the price?
Thank you id advance people!
