My R90/6 Build Thread
 
My search for an airhead ended when I finally got in contact with the guy who owned this 76 r90/6. I found it on craigslist and after a week of trying to get in contact with him I heard back. They had been on vacation and to my surprise still had the motorcycle. Talked to him on the phone and made a plan to take off that Saturday for the 5 hour drive to get it. To out surprise the bike ended up being in better shape than the picture he had on craigslist made it appear to be.

Money was exchanged we loaded the bike up and headed back home. This winter brings a full overhaul on the bike. The bike will be painted wimbledon white with the classic bmw pinstripe done in black. Motor will be getting painted black also. So with an attempt to keep this as short as possible here are the pictures. I picked it up last Saturday.

First time seeing the bike in person at the sellers home

Unloaded the bike into my dads shop where we will be doing all the work on it this winter.

Last night pulled the motor/transmission and touched up the paint on the frame.

After touching up the frame, started sandblasting the parts we could to prep them for paint. This is a comparison of the sandblasted vs non sandblasted

The goal this weekend is to get the rest of the motor cleaned and sandblast what ever parts we can to get the motor ready to paint. This is all the progress so far but I will continually update this thread!
