Hello to everyone who has been following my girls journey in a bid to get back out on to the open road.

Since my last post, I have made quite a bit of progress and can now advise that the frame has been totally striped, sandblasted and powered coated black. The front forks and slides together with the top and bottom triple clamps were also done.

The engine, gearbox and final drivehavebeen totally striped down and new parts replaced where needed, together withnew gaskets and seals and then rebuilt.

After everything wasthoroughly cleaned,I was in a position to start to put the bike back together again.

Although this has been quite intense and a lotof time spent in the garage,the photo's attached will give you a clear idea as to how far I have got in my restoration.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and to all who have given me support and encouragement.

Wow! Quite a transformation your "Girl" has gone thru. I just took a look at your original pics. Great job.

Can I suggest that you post your progress into the same thread to keep it all together.
Maybe one of the mods can combine your previous posts for this bike with this one.

Looking forward to seeing it on the road.
Cheers

I am stunned by the spiffy clean engine, it looks awesome.
Is there a thread on bringing an engine back as Hopping Mad has done or can the instructions be simply told in this thread.

Hello!

Im searching and searching and even used my magnifying glas,
I can't find a spot of dirt!
There must be dirt somewhere ;-)

Very well done!
Please add some more pictures

Cheers

That's looking really good HM ,only I do notice that your rear shock absorber is fitted upside down.

The original BMW fitting has the alloy block at the bottom so that the oil and internal valves are correctly positioned.

Good job, or as they say in America, 'nice jahb'. I look forward to seeing the completed picture. It makes my BB K100 look positively shabby in comparo.

I s'pose I'll have to focus on scrubbing and polish a bit more...

Oh, no I won't. It's barely a squirt from the garden hose in the driveway and a wipe across the petrol tank with a clean rag once in a while for me. I mainly ride them in the rain to keep them clean, but admire those who manage to keep 'em sparkly even whilst using them as intended.
