New Guy signing in for the first time

Postby Steve Rankin » Sat May 29, 2021 1:46 pm

Hello all, I am signing on to this forum for the first time. I am a US citizen, who owns two BMW airhead bikes. The newest and most ridden of the two is my 84 R80RT with 240K miles on it. I am the original owner and am currently cosmetically restoring it for the third and hopefully last time in my lifetime.

The second bike I own is a Euro spec 78 R100RS, with either 45K miles or 145K miles on it. I am the third owner hence the unknown miles. It is my soiled dove, I purchased it in 96, got knocked off it in an accident in 2000, stripped it down to bare frame, put it into bins until 2017 when I had a friend's shop restore it. Problems found in the restoration earned it its nickname. Happy to say it is running very well.

Anyway for the most part I do my own repairs, I am lucky to have a nearby airhead shop to help out in need. St.
