Fair warning, anyone looking may want to avoid this seller. We had an agreement and he backed out of the deal

That's too bad! I've had lots of good transactions over the years on that site. Thanks for the heads up.

WTB: BMW fork cap pin or multi wrench

As the subject says, looking for a gently-used tool like the one Hucky's sells new for $21 (#71111237858 or 71119090139) and found in some (but not my) toolkits. It's not too expensive new, but I thought I'd check here first. I am aware of the Park pin spanner, but would like something more substantial.

Thanks -

I was never thrilled with my stock BMW toolkit one. Pins got wobbly over time. I use a lot of Park stuff for bicycles and it holds up OK for home use. You can also look around Mcmaster Carr and the like for a pin spanner.

I need one now as well as I've fitted /5 fork caps to my /7. The caps have been chromed so I need a really solid wrench. I'll probably just make one using one of my existing hook wrenhes. Costs all of a pair of grade 10 bolts, some jamb nuts and some quality grinder time.

I made a special wrench for the /6 era chrome wheel bearing caps. Completely superior to the toolkit thing but a shop only tool.

you can make one really easy, get some flat stock drill two holes in the appropriate location and press in a drill bit of the next size up cut off to desired length. That's what I did.

Wanted: "Two Ribbed" Front Hub (R80ST or UK spoked Police bike)

Looking to do the brembo dual disc fork swap onto my 78 R100 but need a slimmer hub for the spoked wheel.
Anyone have a "two ribbed" hub?

I don't think this should be taken as a bad mark on IBMWR but for the seller.

WTB Instrument Plug Screw

As the title says, I'm looking for the screw that holds the large plug onto the back of the instrument cluster for a 1982 R100.

If you have a spare, old one lying around, or know a good match I am interested.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

A long time ago, I worked at a place in Baltimore that imported BMW car parts, mostly for old 2002s and coupes. I found on the microfiche that in France, they used a yellow bulb in their headlight, which happened to be the same style as is in a /5, so I ordered one. It was cool looking, and I really liked the light it made. Talking about it makes me want another one. The company that I worked for was called Maximillian Importing Co. I'm sure they can get it still.
