Doesn't look like a Reynolds to me either. The tubes on mine are round, all of them. That has square tubes.

No ...not a Bon Jovi song....
After a small airhead tank for a racer project in New Zealand.
Tank condition not that important as long as it hold fuel.
Dents not a problem.
Ideally a toaster tank but looking at budget options.

Airhead Motometer Clock

I have a green face Clock in my spares that I no longer need. There is a small dent on the bezel about 11:00, and typical scuffs at the raised edge. The clock runs FAST. If I remember correctly it runs about 3:1 or three revolutions per one actual minute.
Body is in great shape, no corrosion and the bulb socket and studs are in great shape.

$40 plus shipping to the lower 48.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Denfeld R police solo seat

Hi I have a Denfeld Police seat fits most R models but not the R80G/S with the rear rack (it is a tad longer).
The seat is an original BMW police stock.
Top upholstery is fine and pliable, the rear vertical panel can be either repaired or changed. The front vertical panel can be either gaffer-taped or changed. Seat pan has surface rust otherwise solid. Foam is pliable and comfy. It has the original glovebox also the orig hardware which is expensive to buy if you do not have it.
I have seen these selling on ebay for $400 buy it now when in top nick and $200 when in ok condition. Lets say $150 for this. I am in Germany right now. Postage to the US will be around $50.
Please PM if interested. I am giving this a try then it will end up on ebay if no takers. The seat owes me $150 unfortunately. That is what I paid for it :(
Inerested parties please contact me.

Keys for old-style BMW panniers, the square ones

Hi again this is one of my stupid ideas, I bought a whole lot of these keys because I know they are as rare as hens teeth and most of them unobtainable. I thought about reproducing them and becoming a millionaire ha ha but failed abysmally because no blanks are found. Now, I found these keys in Argentina, old stock sleeping at a warehouse. In Argentina and as a rule of thumb parts are US prices x 2, so yes laugh at me I paid USD $15 per key.
These are the numbers I have: #040 #042 #045 #046 #047 #048 #049 #050 #051 #052 #053 #054 #055 #056 #060 #064 #066 #067 #068 #069
So if you are interested please let me know, we can workout something as this has been a total loss for me. I am right now in Germany. Postage should be as cheap as a standard letter but there wont be insurance...still should workout allright.
Here is a picture of the panniers and where to find the code on the latch, both stolen from the internet. I am also after a #041 top latch if you have one I am happy to trade.

Hi I have one of these rare front fenders for a R80G/S. They fit on the front fork brace make an huge change in the bike´s stability at high speeds, ideal for tourers, highly recommended. The one for sale is in very good condition just have a few marks that get hidden by the fork tube, white unpainted. I am right now in Germany. I want $75 for it which is what it owes me, postage extra.
Here is a pic from a fellow inmate.

Modified R100RS frame.
This would make make the ultimate frame for an Airhead Cafe Racer, a very kool Scrambler or race bike. A straight, undamaged frame was gusseted to improve strength and handling and the engine was raised in the frame by flipping the front mount and installing the rear mount thru-frame. Steering lock was removed, a /6 style horn mount was added. Etc. These were popular and proven mods during the Airhead era and have also been proven on my road bike. This frame was going to be the base for my next build but the adoption of my Grandson. has changed my plans. This frame was Soda blasted clean and is currently painted gloss black and is ready to ship with clean title. $350 + Ground Shipping or best offer.

See t here:

Modified 1976 R90/6 Frame:
This frame doesn't have the level of mods that the above R100 frame has but both the frame and the sub-frame have been gusseted and strengthened for improved handling and longevity. The engine is NOT raised but the head area has been stiffened as has the swing arm area, etc. The center stand mounts were repaired using SS inserts and are better than new. This frame does not have side braces but is otherwise identical to what you'll see through the link and is ready for paint.. All of the work on these frames was done by a master bike builder and this one is identical to the frame thats under my personal 1976 /6 R100 custom. If you want a twin shock bike that can tour with a heavy load and handle the curves, this is just the ticket! Ready to ship with a clean title. $250 + Shipping.

See it here:

Heres my bike:

If you are interested in trading, I'm looking for a LWB /5 or /6 seat in good to V-good condition or a “no rust” /6 seat pan with hinges and pin. I'm also looking for a twin shock trailer hitch, trailer, or a set of /6 wire wheels or wheel hubs in good condition.

Thanks for looking!

Hate rots the pocket that carries it.
