Same gaskets for /5 ("Peanut") and /7 valve covers. Available from Capital Cycle, Max BMW and others. They're like $5 each.

I really need an 18" Akront Rim. I have no idea where to even start looking ... I need it for the GS hub ... so a tubeless. All I can say is here is a picture of one.

Who's got the goods?

That is a crazy low price on complete kits. Being in the BMW parts business for 25 years and buying from Europe for over 20 of that I would question the quality.

I kinda remember EUBMW gaskets being a little wonky. Bought from them once, I think.

Hucky ( Hans Lowe ) is the best source for Bing rebuild kits, or anything for your Airhead. Call him up, you'll see.

I have them in stock as well. I don't advertise them because I use a lot of them in carburetor rebuilding. Hucky is $71.90 and I'm at $65.00.

I also need a suitable replacement for the rubber 'frame mounting' piece that is under the R65 and g/s tanks. I was told that it didn't have a BMW part number ... anyone have ideas around that?
