Check out our friends at Motorrad Unlimited in Asheville, NC. These folks really know the airhead BMW and Ivan is an awesome guy. We (Cogent Dynamics Inc.) do a lot of custom high end suspension modifications for the airhead that are available through them (as well as directly from Cogent). Motorrad Unlimited build cool bikes and using our custom suspension, In cluding our custom twin shocks made in our Asheville, NC area shop, Ivan won the national championship in the AHRMA BEARS Series on his R75/5 this year and capped off the season with an overwhelming double victory at Barber during the Vintage days festival. The tires they sell are amazing, race winning and good street tires as well. Motorrad also make frame braces and other goodies here in the Carolinas.

Hello !
During the Communist era, it took all of the Soviet block to make a car. The motor was made in Yugoslavia, ignition in Czechoslovakia, steel in Ukraine and Russia.... etc... This was to prevent any country from quitting the Communist block being unable to have any valuable industry.
Now Communism is dead, but you need the whole world to make a motorcycle. From Japan, to whole Europe and China with Korea being eager to compete.... This is for ..... ?????
Who won ?

Those who forget or never learn their history will certainly repeat it time and time again.

Example, compare GM to The British Motorcycle Industry of 1980

Kathy's Tube Stash Bags from Bob's BMW.

Cool stash bag that fits down the Airhead backbone with finger hooks on both sides. Even if you don't carry contraband it makes a great place for your tire irons.

I've sold quite a few 4 pot Brembos for the R100GS. Course I don't make them just modify them. It's well documented. Availability is hit or miss though. I have a R80ST and R65 version in the works which I'm excited about!! Just waiting to get my hands on the ST.....to check things out before I cut on a caliper.

Happy Trails AL boxes.

Forks By Frank- not farkles though

Race Tech- think they are USA

Woodies Wheel Works- could be farkles...
Highway Dirtbikes- great triple clamp, and brush guards for bars.

Just scored a AirHawk seat off CL for $55 bucks. Much to my delight the box said "Made In USA"
