Building a new airhead!!

I got a email from Siebenrock this morning. I had no idea they were doing this sort of thing. Pretty neat. Copied the press release here. Don't know anything else.





Press-release


Three variants for every demand


Exclusively and individuell – Siebenrock-BMW „GS2“

now in series production


Wendlingen, November 3rd, 2010.
Good news for all friends of the individual 2-valve
boxer. BMW-expert Siebenrock now starts the production of the GS2 again. Since 2005
the Wendlingen based firm manufactured their interpretation of the classic 2-valve GS in
about 25 examples, each one individually according to the customers desire. As a result
of the steadily increasing demand a small series is now planned in 3 variants Classic,
Enduro and Sport.
"Our GS2-models are more popular than ever. During this years Intermot we received
several concrete orders besides of many inquiries. Therefor the series production is not
more than a logical step for us - particularily because we where able to extend our
production capacity with Nov. 1st considerably", Jochen Siebenrock explains. With BMW
Bayer concentrating on the online business Siebenrock now comes with the infrastructure
necessary for a series production. The Siebenrock-GS will nevertheless remain exclusive
for the owner to-be still has the option to compose his GS2 individually. But Siebenrock
awaits that most of the potential buyers will be glad to have the opportunity to order the
bike that fits their demands bestin a pre-configured model.



Classic look with Siebenrock technique inside – the GS2 Classis


With a look that is only cautiously modified compared to the BMW series model the "GS2
Classic" livens up the eighties. The long rear frame end, the small lamp mask and the
fitting wind shield generate the charasteristic look of the early G/S-models, whilst the
weight optimized stainless-steel exhaust system SGS2 beams the boxer in terms of looks
and sound into the present time. The engine power is also adapted to the contemporary
expectations due to the legendary Siebenrock power kits.


Handy fun mobile on- and offroad - the GS2 Enduro


The "GS2 Enduro" makes a good figure on-road, but shows at first sight that she wants
more.And because off-road each pound counts the Enduro is forcefully weight-optimized
with a short rear frame end, single-seat and a small Enduro-lamp mask - the well-proofed
SGS2 exhaust system alone saves 5 kg approx. Firm off-road suitable components are to
be seen on the "GS2 Enduro" also on a closer look: the Enduro-suspension and the
equally named oil sump with its rugged engine protection cannot easily be upset. The two
piece valve covers add to the enduro look and result in additional protection. The power of
this GS2 is increased like that of her classic sister by the use of Power- or Replacement-
Kits.


Power pure for street and raceway - the GS2 Sport


With the third of the bunch Siebenrock addresses the port-oriented BMW fans. The "GS2
Sport" is power-optimized without compromise : 1070 ccm displacement, 80 horse powers
and a maximum torque of up to 116 Nm speak a clear language. This is made possible
through the most ambitioned power enhancement kit from Siebenrock, the Big Bore Kit
which is awailable in 4 variants with the beginning of this year. Double spark plug ignition,
bigger break disc, Sport shock absorber and SGS2 exhaust system are additional
components that Siebenrock uses to increase the riding fun.
Each one of the GS2 models is offered in a single tone or stylish dual tone painting with
hand striping. The GS2 riding fun can be entered at a starting price of approx. 10.000
Euro for a totally new assembled bike. Everybody having the intention to convert his seies
boxer by himself can order the parts required directly at Siebenrock/Wendlingen or a base

dealer of his choice.

Siebenrock is now going into production (?manufacturing?modifications?) of a BMW GS2 ? Can they even sell it here in the US, what with the EPA and NHTSA certifications that have to be made?

That's £14,000 at the current exchange rate. IS that expensive? In the UK they work out to £2,000 less than an F800GS

How "new" is it? Meaning, are they taking existing powerplants, rebuilding them and producing replica everything else. That certainly would bypass all of the EPA stuff here as it would be a 198X model rather than 2010. Back when in the late eighties when the resto craze started, there were people building "new" 60's and 70's Camaros. Basically,completely restoring them and offering warratys and everything else that you would expect from a a new car purchase.

This guys been doing that for a while. Ships them all over the world http://www.bamw.co.uk/

I've just bought an early paralever headlight cowl from Siebenrock. Looks identical to the original, seems they are manufacturing quite a few parts. These new bikes come with Siebenrocks own barrels, cams etc. I would imagine they are refurbishing frames, carbs etc and fitting new parts that are available or made themselves for everything else.

Didn't spot that one. He's selling Siebenrock parts. I guess that's one of the new Siebenrock bikes. £15k

As they used to say, a bike will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no bike.

Or something like that...
