mine is 1986 Paris Dakar - (it of course should not have that side panel in Dakar guise)

Photo below - i hope - with some bits missing, (exhaust etc) - now in more bits as i will be ready to have the frame powder coated in the next couple of weeks
I will also paint my red Hawker black - use a rattle can

red seat and rack - BM Germany still have , (a few) - but be quick

Cheers

Thumb Where did you locate the solo seat and rack?

thebeeez

Bmw still have them in stock as Paragon says
Part Numbers
52.53.1.453 837 seat
46.54.1.453.838 rack

You will also need four screws to fix the seat to the rack
nothing else, as the rack locates into your original seat lock

My '73 R75/5. I have owned this for around 20 years. Still a fun ride.

Hey Stagehand, what shield is that on the GS, and where did you find it? Looks a whole lot better than the Parabellum


That R60/6 looks awfull familair. My first BMW way back in 1976 was a R60/6, I bought it with 5K on it, put about 70K on it, rode the wheels off it, and then sold it when I got a good deal on a R90S a few years later.
It was pretty beat up by the time I sold it, must have dropped it 4 or 5 times. When I got rid of it, it was wearing low bars and a 1/4 fairing like yours, also had a primer gas tank hidden under a tank cover, and a set of Krauser bags

Can't forget the faithful R80RT - not as exciting, but rock solid and smooth as can be:

relpy to Norton73

Norton73: The PD at that time was basically pure stock, except for some progressive front springs, a pair of Piaa's, the Touratech Bashguards and some deer antlers. So thats a stock windscreen. Have to say it puts the wind right into my eyes...bought it in 2002 Sept with 42000, have 72000 now, try to ride it year round, but am wussing out lately.
I love the old R60/6, I call him George. He's been through the wringer... got him with 32k in 1990, has 85k? now...lots of love, rebuilt twice while i was figuring out how to fix it. (Dont want to talk about it) Was brown originally, but hitting the deer initiated a repaint, and got the smaller tank. the Windsheild on that one, I am ashamed to say, is a JC Whitney special. What the hell. Finally got all the trimmings I need, except for hardbags... I figure I'll weld some snot onto the subframe, and attach the system cases from the PD, since I just got new Zegas for that. Thanks for the interest, I Love these machines. www.jasona.smugmug.com

Sorry Stagehand, but I beg to differ, thats not the stock windsheild
The stockers didn't have that kickup on the top, nor the flare around the sides. the stock one puts the wind right in the center of my faceshield also, I'd like something with more deflection, but I don't want the additional height to look over.
The parabellum shields just look kinda cheap for what you get.

Thanks for replying anyhow
