+1 on the Beemershop. They took my plastic and sent my driveshaft via USPS very quickly up here to Canada. I will use them again.

A big +2 on that. Ted's been in the biz forever and runs a good shop.

Bummer about Chris. I've not ordered from him, yet , but he was on my list.

Anyone know what the story on the shop closing is???

Just FYI, a lot of the Eurotech parts are at a good discount, some are at MAXBMW prices, and some are a couple bucks more. I just went through every airhead part on his site.

With Eurotech closing down I am working on a new business plan with more than just replacement parts. Keep an eye on www.boxermetal.com. We will be(and already are) offering....

• Custom BMW cafe racer parts
• Vintage road racing parts
• Boxer performance
• Tech days
• Ride in and stay the night and have your custom work done while you wait

• Sidecar parts plus
• Custom built sidecar rigs
• Sidecar training

• Plus complete restoration facility, custom fabrication and metal art.

Just finished up a sidecar build. Here is a picture with a very happy customer.

More power to ya. If you can fill your time building Airheads and sidecars, do it like you mean it. You can always do a parts inventory in future if you want, or not.

Just a very nice rig you show above and I can undertand the owner's big smile. Congratulations.

Thanks Dok. I have been building sidecars for about 17 years and restoring BMW's for almost 25. It is a true passion of mine.

I've had some comments about this going to vendors or flea market.

If this had been posted by the folks at Eurotech, it'd go into Vendors. If it was a private sale, it'd be in Flea Market. Since it's informational and posted only by a person that isn't affilitated with Eurotech, it stays here.

Thanks for the heads up guys and to the guys at Eurotech, sorry to see you go.

Ride well,
