Classic's and their owners

Just for the fun of seeing how far we can come in completing a 100 LE bikes-list. Below is what i could find in the public domain/internet/forum/FB. So no problems concerning privacy i guess. Craven Collection York has a Classic, what number? Paul Ralph now has number LE011? Solvang Motor Museum has...

Re: Classic for sale

Hi Geoff, Sorry to read this. With some bikes you can have a love/hate relation isn't it? Like Italian bikes. Most times the love-side wins... A Classic is such a good looking and unique bike. Why not also buy a used cheap Jap-bike as a back-up. That way you can keep the Classic. Also, it might be j...

Re: Torque values for bolting the brake disc to the PVM rim.

Of course the type of Loctite used is very important. But the amount used is also critical. I always use a tiny drop at the end of the thread of a bolt.
But I've seen a lot of people dosing the whole bolt in the stuff...

Re: Torque values for bolting the brake disc to the PVM rim.

I think it's 20 to 30Nm for most bikes, looking in the manuals of the different bikes i have..
Bigger problem is that i came across to many bikes where they used to much loctite....

The BMW R27? I ride and own one from 1977. Very very Comfortable bike. The engine is rubber mounted wich helps a lot. And ultra reliable. Only 2 less good points of the bike, is that it is slow and the gear change is a bit agricultural. The gear changing of old BMW's is very easy though, once you di...

Hi Wayne.

Youre right about this. I've tried the site.
Unfortunately the wiring-files don't open on the site when i click on them.......
Of course i have a wiring-diagram from Minimag, but the wire-colors on their diagram differs from my bike's wire-colors.

Re: Classic at Bonhams

I think the premium is 15%, so 10.500,- without it.

Re: Fork Gator Material

Hi John,

I'd go for BMW ones. Call Motorworks in the UK with the dimensions and see what they have.
I once fitted a non original BMW rubber (the swingarm-gaitor) on my R80 and i got 4 years out of it. Putting an original BMW-one on, now having learned, it still is perfect after 12 years.
