Sourcing used cylinder head for '51 R67

Postby r75boxer » Sun Nov 29, 2015 2:35 am

Hello all. After about five years in storage I am finally getting around to working on my R67. The left cylinder head is not in great shape so I've been looking for a used replacement. Ebay has been no help and buying a new one is outside of the budget. Any leads would be most welcome.

Hi Kevin

I don't know if you have heard of a company here in England called Motorworks. They do a lot of second hand BMW parts and may be able to source what you are looking for. Worth a try, just google them they have a really good website.

Thanks Ian. I tried them and they indicated that they don't have anything this old. They specialize in parts after 1970.

I also need the cover ring for a 1/24/15 Bing carb. Leads would be most appreciated.

Hi Kevin

You could look on the real OEM site to first see if any other models used the same head.
Sources in Europe (Google is your friend )
Bob Porecha UK
Ulis moterladen GERMANY
Stemler GERMANY
Mark Hugget SWITZERLAND
There are others in Germany.
They should be able to help with Bing parts as well.

I hope this helps Brian

I've tried several of those sites and will try the couple that I haven't. New is not an option as I am trying to keep costs down. Most don't deal in used parts.

I might be worth looking at having the existing one refurbished?

Hi Kevin,

You don't say what is wrong with the original cylinder head?

Have you tried taking it to a machine shop that specialises in reconditioning cylinder heads for an expert opinion?

The good shops can do quite a bit in restoring a damaged head.

Here is a link to an article by Duane Ausherman to illustrate the point:

HI
Russian parts? Ural? Dnieper?

Like Ced said?

Another bike that could be modified?

Hello all. It looks like I may have found one and it's on this side of the pond. Another option is to have the exhaust manifold bit taken off and another installed. WRT what's wrong with the head, just about everything owing to a seized piston and valve which met its maker.

Thanks for all the input though. I've added a few great part sites to my collection.
