When scanning Craigslist last night I found a picture of a BMW motorcycle and the ad said "Fix my bike!" I sent a text right away and finally found the home or garage where this BMW was sitting. I had asked the owner if he knew what it was. Well I had thought it was the HP 4 crotch rocket. He has sent me a note back that it wasn't. No front end, Forks are upside down The front wheel looks to me like the style for the HP4.
I admit that I haven't worked on anything that new. Date of manufacture is 9/12... If it isn't the HP4 then is it the SS1000R? Or is there another model that has the inline 4 cylinder up right engine with a chain drive? The person said he had purchased it on a salvage title and wants to get it back on the road. He wanted to know if I could help him. He also wanted to find used parts. I kept asking what kind of motorcycle and he was frustrated with me.
I told him to use parts that fit that bike and I could help him. Does the serial number give me an idea on what model? No fairing. Top of fake tank is broken.
I live only 8 miles from the State Fair Grounds where the Rally will take place this weekend. Thought about finding parts there but model is unknown to me.
