Carol says: "The fairing hasn't changed a bit. I wish I could say the same"
That fairing went from Illinois to California with the original owner of this BMW. I think he said he also took it to Mexico a couple of times, and to a bunch of BMW Rallies. It's latest stint was to spend 16 years sitting in a barn (sometimes party house). I finally struck a deal with the second owner last May, and am working on it now. The frame will be going for powdercoat this coming week. Because it sat for so long, the bike only has 39K miles -- not at all bad for a 1974 model. The fairing is in pretty good shape for its age. All I did was wash it off before I started the teardown.
So Craig, what does this do to your S/N list? Maybe a special "transitional" category?
You mentioned earlier that the Rainy Day fender was special. Where would I read about that?
Thanks for all the info.
