a friend's engine, R69S: slingers full at 40,000 mi.

[/QUOTE]

Now was that the first 40,000m or the second?
I'm showing a twitch over 80,000m.
That's 32K after slingers. I wonder...

He's the second owner, bought the bike in the '60s.
A reasonably meticulous sort of guy.

Also a late starter

Mopeds in my youth, passed by test aged about 30, rode dad's bikes for a bit then....a decade before i got my "first" bike. Actually inherited my old man's R50 - got to keep it taxed and tested and ready to ride for when he comes to see his grand daughters. I'm making sure they get brought up right ;-)

That's weird. That looks like the bike that had the monster tank that was being posted my way. Maybe it was sent to my Penang shipping address.

That garage looks familiar! Indeed yes, it's my bike in an earlier, not registered guise. I'm gathering the bits to make the Hoske a comfortable proposition, as well as getting it pretty enough to put on the bike. What do you think of the E21s? I know some bloke that does mounts for them ;-)

Too many, Renner, too many (so my understanding wife tells me). R50 and Citroen 11BL are runners, Alfa Giulia Super is project for a bit later, Ural M66 is my first bike but never finished....will be on the road by late 2014. There's a CZ477 somewhere in there too and some bicycles.

Just found a 1962 R60/2 that has been in storage since 1974. "Ran when parked".
Missing the mufflers and has some un BMW handlebars. $3700.00.
Probably is a pretty good deal. Wish I had $3700.00 laying around.
Haven't been able to get over and look at it.

Jezebel ran well 2 up through the Litchfield Hills.

No, there shouldn't be any VIN numbers back there. Now if you are looking at the casting of the rear drive by the shaft filler plug, that is the ratio of the rear drive stamped on the casting.

As the world turns




I look at this foto, and I can't help but think of wirewerkr, Robert VanVliet.
Robert sold me these jugs and slugs, first over, for a very reasonable price as I was just building the aforementioned bike, 32,500 miles ago. Without his help, Jezebel would not have ever made it to the road. I miss him.

She started smoking a week ago, and subsequent inspection reveals heavy damage to the left cylinder walls, both sides, and the wristpin/circlips have destroyed the piston.



It looks like this has been going on for a while. It still started and ran well, except for the smoking....

The right side is fine.

Make sure your circlips are set correctly.
Sorry I blew up your parts wirewerkr!
