Would you take on a project like this????

2001 R1150GS 27000kms

Purchased a 2001 R1150GS from A1 Automotive for next to nothing. This was and still is my dream bike...here's my chance to own one...wife not happy!

They delivered the bike to my house a few days later (around first of Nov 2009) exactly as seen in the pics...what a state.

My theory was to pick up the necessary parts from ebay and bike dealers over the next few years and rebuild the bike. Did some searching on the web and came across another car parts place similiar to A1 Automotive call A Lot of Auto Parts in Saint John NB. They had a 2005 that they were parting out. WOW the stars are lining up for me now I thought....

Through many emails and phone call with Ray K. at A Lotof Auto Parts, he aggreed to remove all compents for me at an extremely awesome price. Parts arrived 3 days later via Day and R. Began assembly that day and night, next day and night....you get the picture...

After a week and a half I managed to get the bike started and this past Saturday took it for it's first road test, put on 12kms....

Totally wicked bike. Not dissappointed at all. This is the third basket case motorcycle I am after working on in the last 15 years. It is a great feeeling to rebuild something from parts, educate yourself on the bike, and finally get it running and safe for the road.

I sold my DR750 to help pay for my project.

Anyway, after watching the long way round this weekend, it reinforced my appreciation of the quality and ruggedness of the GS series BMW.






Here are a few pics of the parts bike that I had got a pile of parts from....

Once I received the parts, I started assembly. Installed handle bars, connected the hydraulic clutch to slave on rear transmission. Connected throttle and choke cables. Installed drive shaft into swing arm (pain in the donkey ( . ) Installed swingarm onto rear of bike ( another pain in the ^$$). Used parts and original parts to build instrument cluster, front fender and headlight assembly, some plastic welding required. Installed exhaust system.
Biggest trouble I had was the electrical connectors from the handle bar components. My bike is a 2001, parts from 2005 adventurer, connectors were a little different and wire color codes a little different. Needed to use my electronics skills to rewire...works excellent. Once new seat assembly and gas tank install with a used battery, fresh gas and a boost..she started up right away...







Took the Beemer last week of November 2009 today for a 50km ride to Marble Montain and back using all service roads from Pasadena, no hwy! Bike is working perfectly, after resetting the ABS yesterday, ABS is now working as expected, handle bar warmers...I don't know I managed without them all these years...excellent option.

At TIm's in Steady Brook (Best Coffee on the island!) I ran into a few fellow riders who know of the project I was taking on...overwhelmed I have it on the road so soon, and how great a condition the bike is in.

Hopefully a few more rides before the snow starts flying...


Final Product from hours in the shed drinking beer and telling lies with some riding buddies....








Dirty after an excellent ride...can't wait for the summer to do the Trans Lab HWY....
