Hi, Im Alex. Joined the forum over the summer and have been busy with work and school so I haven had time to post anything.
Basic stuff is, Im a Mechanical Engineer and currently have two bikes. A 1971 R60/5 that I picked up for free. Thing was a basket case. All the bolts for the entire bike came in the same coffee can and took two trips filling up my old golf with parts. Took a year to get running and another to get rrunning well and all the goofy stuff sorted out. Stuff like instrument lights and a messed up charging system.
Its been a learning experience, still dont understand why the bike doesnt have any fuses. The guys at Max BMW have been a huge help. That was before I found this forum though.
The other bike is a GS500, dont really like it but got it really cheap and just trying to turn it to buy something else. Or parts, those are nice to.
Hope to learn a lot from this place and just have a good time.
