BMW R-Series description

This original condition 1962 BMW R60/2 came from southern Arizona. The original owner's son pushed it out of the barn, tickled the carbs and kicked it to life...I bought it. I had the heads, carbs, final drive and rear wheel rebuilt with new bearings, seals and gaskets. New wiring harness, coil, points, condenser, battery, brake linings front and rear have been installed. All cables, throttle, brake, clutch have been replaced with BMW cables. I will include a new speedo cable but the set screw threads need to be heli-coiled. The tank has been repainted and body work covered up the emblem mounting holes but the inside is very nice with the original red-kote. The bike runs and rides nicely, if I were keeping it, I would replace the straight pipes and tires. Thanks for looking!

BMW S1000RR Valve Train Working at High RPM [video]

Tue, 23 Feb 2010 00:00:00 -0800

I’d like to ramble on about a dozen different things relating to this video, but the 3- minute, 19-second clip speaks for itself. However, once the engine is revving at high rpm, watching the cams, finger followers and valve springs seemingly freeze in action due to the incredible speeds, I was reminded of that whole “Dude, the faster I went the more everything around me seemed to slow down,” experience we’ve all heard about or experienced. Enjoy!
