Pulled the trigger! New Airhead owner!

I finally caved to an awesome deal. This one was listed for 20000,- DKK which is way cheap, but I got it for 13500,- DKK.

Its all freshly painted, gearbox, carburettor, driveline and wiring has been checked and serviced. New clutch and pistons, leadfree head job done too.

I can't believe it yet, so effin nice deal :)




Pics don't do it justice, really need to take some in daylight!

BMW R60/6 in "Algerian Blue".
Though I wonder when it picked up the front disc... maybe after BMW ran out of drums?

Congrats LasseNC, looks like a fine example.

No, a sweet looking bike. Nicer looking than my bikes.

The disc/choke/valve cover/exhaust nut/petcock/transmission/missing reflectors/crooked left sidecover made me wonder if this bike has a story to tell.

Now that I look closer, the pinstripes look a little fat, too.

So, did the 60/6 tank have a space for the under-tank MC, even though it was a drum bike?

Looks like a stock R60/6 to me.

Maybe that front fenders been trimmed a little but thats a /6 with R100 valve covers and exhaust nuts. The later ribbed trans is a welcome improvement and the side cover that needs a new elastic band and the non-factory pin stripes are beyond trivial.

Yeah CDD, the tanks with the extra space for the MC actually came on-line during the last of the /5 run and all of the /6 bikes used the common /6 tanks and the Toaster was dropped.. I understand that it's possible to find a Toaster tank with the MC space in the bottom and I'd love to have one!

If this bike was mine, I'd start looking to a dual disk set-up and ride the hell out of it while I was looking!

Hey.... Nice bike LasseNC!! I hope you enjoy it and welcome to the club!

Ah... good eye.

I'm not sure from these pics but it appears to have short-stem mirrors on Euro bars... same set-up my /5 when I bought it... good for forearm viewing.

I'm loving that blue

I thought I just had a /6 with a /7 frontend

Should I know anything here for when ordering parts? Parts that I need for different models or anything like that. The disc is a given :)

Dual disc you say, hmm.

What would that require?

If you decide to go to dual disks you'll need to either acquire the entire DD front end from a dead bike or find the right side parts by themselves.

As you might imagine, buying the entire front end or a dead bike is the preferred way to go and your braking will improve dramatically!

Fact is, I bought a blown-up Airhead for $100, kept the front end for myself and made several hundred dollars selling off the leftovers to other BMW nuts.

Keep your eyes open!

Is my tank identical with an R75 tank? I am looking at "Bagster" tank covers at the moment, would be neat if it was the same tank.

R75/what?

Look for a good aftermarket sidestand, you are going to want it. Nice looking bike!

The bagster site only says "R75"

Can you recommend a sidestand?
