I got myself a 73 r60/5 over the weekend. I like it - ALLOT, Im a big fan of the BMW engine and craftsmanship to boot.
Not sure what Im going to do yet, I have had a stock r100 so I know for sure it ain't staying stock, so keep posted and i will update the thread as I go - peace and grease...

Something I didnt do while building the XS is document it, so I will be putting updates up here and there of my progress as I go.
Got all the extra shit off the bike today, jeezus the Germans didnt miss anything when it comes to putting bolts in hard to reach places - I award them the German pain in the ass award for over engineering. No wonder these bikes last and last and last...

Tanks off at the painters getting coated with some black. Frame is in O.K. condition, I was a little bummed but shit, almost 40 yrs old, seriously what should I expect. Allot of corrosion and some bullshit silver paint on the hubs, going to get those powdercoated now just to fix the gheyness of silver engine paint.

That's a great platform. keep up the thread.

Gotcha where I want ya...

tore apart the front end, deleted the air box and discovered that some asshole liked silver paint more than I ever have imagined - must have been a Mexican - hahahaha
The rear has quite a bit of rust. Sanded it down for a por15 treatment next week. Wheels will be powdercoated next week, not sure of the hubs though. Headlight is gone, loved that thing but it doesnt belong on this build so I have a 4.5" bates that is longing to go on the bike.

Everything is goin good....

i put just over 100, 000 miles onto my old r100rt with only 1 top end rebuild. it was the electrics that started to fail that made me sell it. engine was still tip top.

replace as much of the loom as you sensibly can with new wires and you will be good for a lot of years.

the germans really do know how to make a quality engine

hope yours turns out a little prettier though... mine was all function

Got it all stripped down to grind - which I did right after the pic. I planned on doing the por 15 painting over the weekend but some drama shit cancelled that, so instead I prepped it super duper good - cant wait to paint.
Also, rebuilt the forks, found that I needed to replace the seals and a few other little gaskets that I wasnt counting on, off to BMW of San Diego tomorrow after work I guess.

Yesterday in the fucking heat I got the frame prepped for the por 15 treatment. Grinded the rest of the powdercoat off, cleaned it with the Marine Clean and then etched the metal with the Metal Ready. By 11:00pm I got the third coat on and of what I could tell it came out o.k, outside of the occasional air bubble or brush mark which pissed me off to all hell., its not the best but better than the rust factory it had before.
Today, after a Starbucks Run for my wife (so she'll leave me alone the rest of the day) Im going to paint the frame with the Chassis black top coat.

I finally got the tire situation figured out. I decided to go with the ol' Firestones but I ran into a problem as well. The BMW runs 19 up front and an 18 in the rear. Hate that shit, for performance reasons I like the rims to be the same size, but I guess I can thank someone for the rims not being a 15 - ha. Anyhow, I ordered the 325 X 19 for the front and a 400X18 for the back. I would like to have the 500X18 for the back but it wondnt fit within the swingarm shaft drive rear end, which bummed me out, mostly when I realized I wanted a bigger front.
When the tires arrived the 325 looked like a dirtbike tire to me. I sort of tripped due to the BMW's airheads making it look like such a wide bike. After some contemplation (2.5 minutes) I decided to order the 400X19 for the front. I received the 400X19 yesterday and its a BIG tire - jeezus, not only by height of course its an inch taller but by width. Im going to have to lower the forks and if everything works out should / hope it will look good.

Terry, I'll buy that 3.25x19 off you if you want to get rid of it.

TemeculaTerry
10-19-2009, 11:09 PM
Sorry Bill, that tire is already spoken for cute stuff.

On an other note.
Frame is finished with the por15, for those of you that are considering using it I will post up a how to thread so you dont make the same mistakes as me. Came out pretty good, Im going to sand down the rear foot / muffler ear holder themageegers and repaint so they will look better- but non the less happy.

Sad to say this bike may not be ready for the Riot, fuck man! Some BIG unexpected bills and expenses came through this weekend, bummed me out but that is life I guess. Anyone want to buy some antique Chinese furniture on the cheap - help a brother out?

McGoo Ill have the wheels on next weekend, so maybe early next week you can come by?

10-31-2009, 1:40 PM
Yeh, I have the frame almost done, just trying to figure out a few things. Got the front end all assembled, need to grind down the bars a bit so the top clamps clamp all the way down - thick powdercoat - shit man...
Putting the rear end on tomorrow, hopefully I can get McGoo to roll oer to center the wheels so chopped850 can true them.
Check out my classifieds, I need some $$ to finish this thing up.
I get some pics up tomorrow.

TemeculaTerry
11-01-2009, 8:28 PM
I finished the paint, decided to do something different with the rear end, finished that as well, all now is to paint that rear end to get the frame finished.
Messed with the wiring today, fucking crazy, but to me all wiring is crazy and it always ends in a dead end - ha...
Anyhow, Im trying to figure what I can do without when it comes to the wiring, there will be no speedo, tach, idiot lights and blinkers, just straight up headlight and tail light so the next thing will be to eliminate all unnecessary wiring and go from there..

Its going as planned just a little slower, but heck I have a two year old and work over fifty hours a week these days - not including drive time, so I do what I can do when I have the chance.

chopped850
11-01-2009, 9:40 PM
Don't worry brother, we'll get it done. I'll come by on Sunday next weekend and true them wheels and help with the wiring.

I have such a huge crush on this bike.

TemeculaTerry
11-21-2009, 8:52 PM
Didnt get much done in the last two recent weeks, fucking Bill and his Riot threw a wrench in everything - lol

After watching my kid until 2:00 today I finally got a chance to go out to the garage.

I took most of the bike back apart. I grounded down the rear of the sub frame but the sparks ruined a part of the paint on the main frame, so I had to take it all back apart to sand it down for a new coat.

While McGoo was over last week he and I came to the realization that the Headlight ears were much to big for what I wanted. To my dismay I was warned by the local BMW nerds not to cut down the fork ears due to their rarity, well fuck, they looked stupid for what I needed so fuck them and their bullshit (If I wake up with a BMW burnt on my lawn I will understand). While I was cutting them down ol' Billdozer was texting for his fix on beer and I missed it. Once I got the text it was tway oo late in the window of fatherhood for Bill to come over so I had to tantalized him with some Big Eye IPA draft, only to leave him Blue Balled til tomorrow
http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/photo-1-3.jpg
I got those headlight ears grounded down, Its real hard to get them exactly the same and realized this half way through, wishing I never started, but for those of you that know me, well, it just created HOLLY FUCKING HELL in my world and I figured it out while ruining a couple of the neighborhood kids with my articulate speech - hehe
http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/photo-6.jpg
They ended up retty much how I wanted them, the only thing is that I had the headlight ears freshly powdercoated before I realized they weren't going to work stock, it cool! back to the powder coater with the sub frame, fork caps, and fork brace.

TemeculaTerry
11-28-2009, 6:34 PM
This has been a rather slow project, I thought I would have this thing done in no time, but here we are heading into December and still, the bike is apart. It has allot to do with work and other things like this pic, but I wouldnt have it any other way.
http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/LauraLane.jpg

A week ago I had the wheels done and then ol' Bildozer came over to fill his growler. While drinking my beer he talked me out of the 325 (behind bill) and into the 400 which Im very glad he did..

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/BillTires.jpg

I got the wheels back yesterday from Temecula Motorsports - check these guys out, super good customer service and super quick turn time, its cost me $15 a wheel for tires and $40 a wheel to true them, not bad considering it doesnt take longer than 30 min for a tire and a day turn around for the wheels.
These came out damned nice I may so myself...super stoked!

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/photo-1-4.jpg

Waiting on some gaskets to be ordered up - then the dreaded wiring (none of the god damned wire colors match the diagrams).

Hey Terry, I finally got around to checkin this thread and what a cool build!
I dont know what info you have on a wire diagram but this is what I found.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2673/4146151382_3cab253190_b.jpg



Here is the link as well: http://diogenes-lamp.info/images/r60wiringdiagram.jpg

If you are going for a minimalist wire harness I would get a quality ign switch and a 15a breaker for the lights and 25 TO 30 A for the ign / chg circut.

Wire the lights straight to the breaker (no switch) and if you are running a headlite with hi-lo beam I just wire the hi beam on,

gut the entire harness down to the reg / rectifier and run your own wiring.

I 'll see if I can map out a custom diagram for you. Mean while get familer with the chg / starting and ign portions of this diagram.

-Eric

Rudehog
11-29-2009, 10:27 PM
Alright dude here is a minimal diagram.....No turn sigs,No lite sw,no starter button, just an ign sw

Let me know if this is what you had in mind.

TemeculaTerry
11-30-2009, 12:31 AM
Wow, thanks bro - really, cant thank you enough!

I had a local BMW guru come over today to help me with the wiring - we managed to figure allot out, but he being such a stock bike guy or to the other extreme racer he was sort of puzzled when I told him what I wanted to do.
My bike is the no fuse model 73' r60/5, but its literally almost the same set up so I get the jest of it.
Im going to go with a three position spring back car ignition, 2nd position I wanted it as a power for the lights and such while the third of course being the ignition, unless you have any other recommendations. I had one in my XS before I ripped the starter out and it worked pretty good. My head light is a Chinese version of a bates, so it doesnt have a high beam option and a solo tail light like you mentioned - clean and simple...

You know you wanna come to Temecula for a good beer fix...

Rudehog
11-30-2009, 12:42 AM
Hey man I'll pm my ph# so you can gimmie a call and I will go over the diagram with ya and take all the scary-ness out and put the fun back in!

I would be glad to help if beer is involved. German wiring doesn't scare me with liquid courage on my side. Let me know when you want to start. I live close to Temecula.

WOMPY
11-30-2009, 10:02 PM
Hey Eric thanks for the wiring diagram. It'll help alot. Terry, we'll need fuseholders, a couple bosch relays, battery, and the ignition switch. Any ideas of where you you want to mount this stuff?
Ooh and did you check the charging system before you tore into it?

TemeculaTerry
11-30-2009, 10:04 PM
Yeh, bike ran like a champ - I know where Im putting the ignition switch, the rest will have to be on the fly.
Ill try to get the stuff together throughout the week -

12-13-2009, 10:19 PM
Sorry about the delay Rudehog...

Well, after a week of the entire family being sick, Santa Claus pics for my boy and prep for Moms early X-mas visit next week I finally got out to the garage to work on my bike a bit. Polished some stuff here and assembled some stuff there.

Whompy and I last week ran into some wiring issues and put that on hold, we didnt get a whole lot done but figured out a bunch of stuff which was cool, anyhow, we got to drink some good beer from ballast point and eat great pizza from oggis while trying to figure everything out.

My intention today was that I wanted to mock up the bike to see its stance, after seeing it 60% complete, I now have came to the reality that the front end needs to drop two inches as I thought (Joel where the heck are you) but all in all very happy with how its turning out - slowly........
Heres some pics of the first mock up;

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/BMWMOCKUP.jpg
http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/BMWMOCKUP2.jpg
This one has the proper stance without lift...
http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/photo-7.jpg

Had more pics but they came out blurry, Ill try to add some later throughout the week.
I wont be working much on this build until after X-mas so til then Ill try not to chew my arm off at family functions...

Terry, I'm stoked! Your bike looks great. Sorry it took me so long to weigh in and help out. I'm glad you found the wheel truer we were looking for. One of these days I'll pull the trigger on a truing stand and take my wheel-building legit.

The darth vader colorway is awesome.

Good job, brother...

01-09-2010, 5:39 PM
Sorry I have been lagging on the updates, but the Holidays and such are just out of control...
Once again - thanks for the compliments, it means allot to me.

Well, a week ago Whompy came over and we went at it again with the electronics, well let me rephrase that; Whompy went at while I played assistant - whatever it takes yeh...
Anyhow, we got the wiring finished, everything seems aok.


Heres Whompy hard at work while I sipped on a beer and took really bad Iphone pics

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/Moto/whompy22.jpg

We decided to hide many of the connections under the starter cover. My original plan worked out by mounting an ignition onto the starter cover as well, worked out nicely due to its a good place to hide all of the extra wire connections that usually are hidden in the headlight bucket.

Yeh - sorry, Ive been busy.

After a solid month I finally got back out to the garage.
My friend Pat down in Carlsbad made a few engine BMW racing cut off plates for me, which in turn will be a battery box/cutoff plate when all said and done.

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/cover.jpg


I also scored big on some Luftmeister 2/1 exhaust, super stoked! these things are hard to get these days.
Im going to cut the muffler part off to shorten them but I will need to figure out an exhaust tip option unless I decide to runem as cans.

http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/lufmeisterexhaust.jpg

I have my BRAND NEW Mikunis sittin in a box, cant wait to get those suckas on as well.
Last week when I had my Beer Boot get together, I sanded, filed and kicked the foot pegs (damned sand casting) and sent them off as well with some new / old exhaust flanges with RustRocket to get them polished by the friendly neighborhood Mexican polisher guy.

rustrocket84
03-19-2010, 11:24 PM
They are at Jose's place now. Should hopefully be done by Monday morning. Jose said it's been slow lately, until last Tuesday or so. Go figure. The guy has got some serious skills with the polishing.

On a side note I should have weekends off starting next weekend so let me know when the next gathering is going to be.

WOMPY
03-21-2010, 7:58 PM
Hey holmes that's a sexy exhaust and pretty neat battery plate. I have some ideas for those exhaust flanges we were talking about , so I'll try to stop by some day this week after work to pick up the forks. Weekends have been hectic for me with the familia, you know how it is!!

TemeculaTerry
03-21-2010, 9:34 PM
Cool man, Im excited to see what you have in mind...Wednesday would be good!
Im looking for some kind of exhaust tip, maybe off of a dirt bike - anyone? or maybe ideas how to run some sort of baffle set up. Im gonna cut that muffler where its welded on, so, as of right now I wont have a baffle...

revmike
04-03-2010, 10:03 AM
Nice work so far, tough guy, you're gonna love that 2 inta 1 I think. Should give you a bit more HP, keep that mexican gas burning better on those long trips...

Looks good, keep up the updates so we dummies can get more idears...

Polished stuff. Here's the footpeg's and exhaust clamps that got done. Only minor stuff on exhaust clamps, from the casting. Footpegs look amazing. Minus my fingerprints. I'll bring you some polish to get those off.

04-04-2010, 3:57 PM
So, I have been contemplating on what to do with the engine. At first I wanted to leave it alone and accept that great old alloy patina, but after realizing that it had so many different castings thrown together it sort of looked like crap to me, as well unfinished; It would make me feel like I threw a bike together around an old engine.

Then I wanted to paint it black, which I may still. I think a black engine would look smart in this set up, but at the same time unless Im willing to do it right it could come out looking like crap after a few rides - nothing is worse to me than a half assed engine paint job.

I finally was looking through some aviation magazines and noticed how the rawness of late WWII / Korea and early Vietnam era planes would look after a battle or two. Since this bike is no spring chicken and apparently been to hell and back in a rust bucket I decided to go with that 1940/50 rustic brushed alloy, polished in some places worn in others kind of look.

Here is something of the final result - I like it...

The left side unfinished

That finish looks great. Glass bead blasted or just wire wheel?

TemeculaTerry

Little wire wheel and a whole lot of elbow grease - bead blasted makes it look sort of a whitish sandy color.

Thanks guys....

Alright, new update ******

I met up with my Pat at BCM headcourters in Encinitas a few weeks back about taking my vintage racing cut off plates and turning it into a battery tray. We wizzed about some ideas but since he is the "master" this is what he came up with - wow - it left me speechless!
http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/photo-7-1.jpg
If you want one lemme know, there will be something very close to this in the near future available.
http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g292/LieFeng/photo-2-3.jpg

Its almost done. Headlight will be figured out today and put together, Ive been super busy so I have been LAGGING on getting the seat done and I need to figure out a mounting option for the tail light and license plate - presto it should be done - that is after going through it with a fine tooth comb and tightening, fastening and correcting any mistakes bolts and leers I need to take care of and adding the proper lubricants.

05-02-2010, 9:06 PM
Well, this weekend was a banger - yesterday I went and bought all of the fluids, figured out a couple little issues with the drive train, mounted my tail light, ran the wires for the taillight and drank allot of hombrew with a good buddy of mine.
ToDAY: Made myself a new Steering damper / Stabilizer (see pic) from an old Aarmachi one, dialed in the brakes and then the issue came up - what the fuck do I do with the breather tube -
F U C K! I figured it out but it took me three hours of work and two trips to the Auto store......so pissed!
Also, after grinding down all this shit to make myself a special tool to tighten the bottom of the forks up I found that the left allen head is stripped out, I hope that mother fucker is tight enough, I guess time will tell - yeh....

Anyhow, everything is on its way, I have to still wire in the brake light, add the fluids hook up the battery, and block off the oil sensor with a big ass bolt - as far as I can tell that should be it.

Rudehog
05-02-2010, 10:35 PM

Just a thought but I think you may have better luck dialing the carbs in if they sat level,may have to cut another piece of rubber pipe at an angle .

Hey Rudehog, Thanks for looking out, thats how the carbs are supposed to be set up, tilted like so in order for the air box holes to line up when stock. If level you would have some serious clearance issues - theres not allot of room on these bikes to mess with.

It'd be amazing if someone could make something like this street legal, imagine ripping around the streets and highways on that "sidecar" amazing stuff,

though it's totally impractical I always thought it'd be incredibly awesome to have one of those sidecar bikes but sans the sidecar portion, gnarly drag bike style, those leading link forks are amazing too,

Thanks guys....

Alright, new update ******

I met up with my Pat at BCM headcourters in Encinitas a few weeks back about taking my vintage racing cut off plates and turning it into a battery tray. We wizzed about some ideas but since he is the "master" this is what he came up with - wow - it left me speechless!

If you want one lemme know, there will be something very close to this in the near future available.

Its almost done. Headlight will be figured out today and put together, Ive been super busy so I have been LAGGING on getting the seat done and I need to figure out a mounting option for the tail light and license plate - presto it should be done - that is after going through it with a fine tooth comb and tightening, fastening and correcting any mistakes bolts and leers I need to take care of and adding the proper lubricants.

Can you please tell me where you got that fantactic turning knob ( for the steering damper) from?
I can be answered on: janudholm@gmail.com

I love it.

Did you have any clearance issues w/ that front tire? The tires for my r100 project came in yesterday (pirelli mt43's - 4x18 front and rear), and it looks like it might be a pretty tight fit up front in the /5 forks I'm using.

Its fits pretty easily, its the back tire that I was stressed about.

Sorry for all the non-answered questions about when my bike and when would be done as well ignoring the requested updates. I had to finish it, Bill had to get pics and we had to get it on CC. I promised Bill I wouldnt post the final product until it was published up on the home news page, I thought that would be the cool thing to do. Anyhow, here it is if you havnt seen it - Once again I appologize, ididnt mean to be rude, just trying to do cool things.

It`s always nice to see great customized BMW`s! Some how most german BMW owners are afraid of modifing their "gummikuh" (rubbercow) as we cal them over here!
