    Airhead pieces all over!








    I just don't know what happened. As soon as I brought it inside, it started falling apart!

    How about a slightly used two-piece crosstube?

    Slightly, as in worn out! No thanks, I saw the thread!

    P.S. Two piece? Could be the wave of the future, you're onto something there!

    Hmmm. I'm new to this BMW thing. Will my airhead fall apart every fall?

    They tend to do that if you're anal.

    Geez, I don't know, my R 75/5 fell apart even worse than this once it was in my basement. Oh, God, this means I am anal! Sunddenly so many things become clear... Anyway, I am just really hoping I know how to put it all together again. But thanks to this site and all of you, I have a chance..

    I have a feeling that this R90/6 has not stopped dropping pieces.

    The good news is that so far I'm not finding anything really bad, just a lot of deferred maintenance. Certainly nothing I can't easily put right.

    I wasn't planning on going quite that far...

    I'm hoping to leave the engine in the frame. As far as I can tell, the engine internals are fine. The bike has only 48k miles on it, so all should be good there.

    Plans may change, of course, as I get deeper into it.
