    By this time BMW had been building bikes 50/60 years.

    I have no idea about the history of the snowflake wheel. It is one of the infamous recalled snowflake wheels.
    The cluster gear came out of my Ď74 R90/6 tranny. I think that bike had about 200,000+ thousand miles when I dissembled it back in the 1990 time frame. I had no plan to rebuild the tranny. The bike ran and shifted great. The bad design was the dogs were casted. They should have been machined to exact size. All Ď74 models 90S, 90/6, 75/6, 60/6, were subject to this possible failure.

    At first I thought it was a Montauk, but now I think itís a Phoenix. These bikes are from 20 years ago.

    Water Break

    B595DF47-C92E-44AF-B8E8-33825936CC15.jpeg
    It was over 100 degrees. Back to the truck for a water break. Got back to the house, planned on going out later. Took a nap, woke up it was 9:00pm. Back to bed. The next day pretty much did nothing, yep I was whipped. I guess at 69; I ainít quite as Ďsprieí as I was at 68.

    Garage Full of Machine Shop Tools and Equipment

    A couple of days after the scrap yard episode, Rick the machine shop instructor wanted to take a little road trip south the college. A lady had called about her late husband had a garage full of machine shop equipment she wanted to gift to the college. Her husband had been the machine shop instructor at the college years ago. It was a short drive south of the college to their home.

    I guess he had passed away over 10 years ago. Itís hard to let go of the stuff your loved ones cherished from the past. We did a preliminary inventory of the equipment. Apparently he was a all around guy; machinist, welder, fabricator, motorcycle rider, car racer, hunting/fishing, shop teacher. Sitting here, I think I remember that motorcycle. I may have rode with him years ago. Sad, the baby boomer generation is passing away, of which Iím a member.

    The stuff really needs to be sold off to another home hobby machinist.

    The family is keeping the old Shovelhead Harley. I remember now that the guyís wife said he painted the bike. Now that I think about, I may have rode with this guy back in the day. My memory is not so good anymore.

    If U look at the right hand side ceiling, U see that old rolled up plastic material. I remember her saying he let it down to do his painting and keep the over spray off the equipment. The guy was multi-talented.
