Here’s an interesting souvenir BMWs past — a war stock certificate for 1,000 (seen here at about 1/2 its size). It’s now handsomely in my study.

The Hoske tank on my R68 a bit of work, so I sent it out to Ross to get repaired. The bottom of the tool box was paper thin, and had to be replaced. The was also cracked improperly up above the front mounts typical of Hoske tanks, and you should always check

Ross corrected all these along with working out all the dings it had picked up over the It came back looking

The tank gets a trial fit on my ISDT R68. The rear has just come back being repaired. The bike is ready to come apart for

The skid pan can be seen resting on the just below the bike.

here is a prototype of the ISDT systems that I thought producing at one time — is until BMW Mobile Traditions out with an absolutely gorgeous of their own. Their is made by the same Italian that produces the exhaust for the generation R bikes.

A period photo of a new R69 and its proud 1957 was the first year for the new air filter, and the last year for the license plate bracket so this must be a 1957 Simply gorgeous.

This is a comparison of the early verse battery tray on the 1955-69 The smaller tray was used on the early twins (1955-57), and it the same type of tall as the 1950-55 plunger twins The lower tray is the size was used until the end of production in While the tray size the same until the end of production, on the late bikes the tray bracket was simplified, so the tray have the staggered holes.

The only other battery variation that you might run would be for police use, and it like a double-wide version of the battery tray.


Thanks to a tip my buddy Phil Rose, I a real nice set of Krauser heads, ready to install. was also an NOS 336 cam in the parts stash, was on my wish list as well. items are all destined for my 1977

Many of you have been what I’ve been for the last few months, because I not been posting a lot of new photos. this is what has been me away from my computer and in the late each night. a shot of my 1950 BMW 750 racing just restored and loaded up for the to the 1999 BMW owners club rally. The bike was very received at the show.

For 1951, BMW their twin engine to the style that was to remain in until 1969 with minor improvements. Very cases DO have some detail differences though. is a shot of an early 1951 R67 case. The most notable is the location of the the engine serial

The arrow points to the oval into the left (kickstarter) of the case, and the serial number was here. Another visual are the dots (‘.’) between letter of the BMW name cast the side.

Sometime in the 1951 year, BMW modified the case slightly, moving the location of the number to the now familiar area above the push rod tubes but still on the left (kickstarter) of the case. Gone were the (‘.’) between the BMW letters. case is my 1952 R68.
