+1. Wish I could get a poster of that.

m143, what did you do for the heat shield and muffler on that bike? Any issues with one header being slightly longer than the other, or clearance issues from the ground? Thinking about a scrambler on a /5 one of these days, this one looks great.

Piet Boonstra's book The Golden Age of Enduro's has a few mentions of Piet's being in the woods (Piet was a multi time champ and no slouch) and John Penton whizzing by on the R27.

Thanx for the compliment, sadly none of this is my doing, and that is not my bike, sorry if it came off that way.
That said, the exhaust came off a motorcycle that BMW built for the Berkshire ISDT.

I was told that that exhaust and gas tank was from the Al Eames bike that he set up the 73 ISDT course on. Big Bamboo posted pics of my R-75 replica that I rode it in the reunion ride with John and Jack Penton, Carl Cranke and Paul Danik. John is 88 years old and rode a 73 Penton all day. All of those guys got gold in the six days, probably the best trail ride of my lifetime, and we rode some of the trails used in the 73 ISDT. I bought a new Husky in 1973 and have been trail riding ever since. When I built my replica, Leo Keller of Vinduro sent me a bunch of real good photos of Herbert Scheks bike. Does anyone have all the magnesium parts that Schek used ? I could make mine lighter. I am taking it to Barbers fall festival in Oct. My swap space is in row D stop by and see us.

An homage to a TT bike of yore. More fun that a barrel of monkeys being chased by weasels.

Post #43 BMW water crossing

This is George Bliss on a /2, probably at Jackpine enduro. he gas welded that high breather. He is a retired welder. He still has the bike and all the off road parts he made. He was at the LaGrange engine show with it 2 years ago. He has great stories about all the old enduro guys from the Amherst Ohio area, he rode with the Pentons.

Post #52 BMW vidio

These machines are from the 78-79 era with Maico forks and central monoshock rear swingarm. The earlier Herbert Schek bikes were twin shock

The Schek prepared bikes are claimed to be under 300 lbs. BMW supplied magnesium cases for them, Google Herbert Schek BMW for a lot of info.
