I am on the hunt for a barn find . Been riding around the SW of Western Australia the past couple of months , and if any elderly person shows any interest in my bike I strike a conversation. Twice in the past couple of weeks I have a almost similar situation in different towns . " My brother had one of those BMW bikes .. we had it parked in our shed for the past 20 years under a tarp. We only got rid of it last year "

I know I am close .. I can almost smell it ...

Shocking




The Works shock was rebuilt with a new shaft.
The new shaft "flat spot" was no longer 9mm but 10....
The new 10mm x 1.50 thread did not fit the old shock top receiver.

I had to run the threads of the new shock top, and the threads of the old receiver and finally they were happy...

So I popped the starboard fore shock and replaced the shattered Boge with the rebuilt Works...



The Boge shafts measured 11mm...
The shafts on the Works are 12.75mm

The refits went well....
