    Here’s some pics of a recent bmw barn find about 45 minutes from my home.
    Owners name is Glen and his business is called thoroughbred motorcycles.
    The R90 is my Xmas present to myself!

    Wishing I were riding my bmeer somewhere anywhere but here today in our balmy -3.
    Here’s a pic that inspired my current build.
    I have the complete set up as the Black bike but my front end may have the triangle motor guard in chrome with a pair of fog lamps mounted somewhere near and mine also has the larger tank with the knee pads.
    The white one will be my chauffeur driven one when I am 90 !

    Those old Beemers are lovely bikes; I always think of the B60 that Elspeth Beard rode around the world in, what.... 1982? Back in the days when the world was much bigger, and we had neither web nor mobile phones...

    I see a fews of these old Beemers around Mile End these days, lovely bikes. Very distinctive, with that squared-off tank, unlike any of the rounder Brit bike tanks which were also aped by the Japanese bikes of the day.
