I also ride the wife's G650GS when I'm not on the K75S or R1200GS. The "Bumblebee." I just don't think she's ever going to ride that thing. It's somewhat fun to ride, but when I lose my teeth I think I'll need super ploygrip to keep my dentures in. That thing vibrates like crazy. Makes my ass numb.

My daily rider is a 1982 Nighthawk 650.  Once I get my K75 running the NH will be my hot weather bike and my K will be my distance and cold weather bike.  Unless I sell one and start another project.

I think I have a horn you can have if I can find it.  Would be a good excuse to see your R26.  Isn't it great the BMW still has parts for 50+ year old bikes?

Wouldn't that be a 6V horn? I remember the horn on my '66 'twingle' was weak until cleaned & adjusted ...

Yeah, my horn is a 12V.  Still yours if you can use it.

Sure! Youíre welcome to bring it over and check it out, of course once he weather stops being annoyingly bipolar. I ended up buying a 6v horn and it just doesnít cut it. If the 12v one doesnít then maybe Iíll have to get creative. I can live without mirrors, turn signals, abs... but a horn Iíd kinda really like to have.

Well, I have a few different bikes. The K is the most modern and the only E start I've ever owned.

Here's  three....




1970 Lightning, owned since 1988












1956 Zundapp KS601EL Craigslist find. Disassembled and stored from 64 until 2011, when I adopted it.
Everything was labeled with pencil on marking tape in twist tied baggies. 18 month project.


 [ Invalid Attachment ]














1960 Greeves  Scottish/Hawkstone with a 1974 Velorex 560
Solid and dependable  340lb. BLM and Forest Service Road rig. CA licensed and registered.










I'd  better check and make sure this all sticks before I continue....  :bmwsmile

What baffles me is how somebody can put together a bike like that Zundapp from parts in baggies, but can't post a photo without having a meltdown.

Nice work on the bikes. You persisted until you posted two of them here. Keep trying until you get that Greeves posted. :2thumbup:
