Beautiful Vintage BMW! 5.24.22 FINALLY have the time to get this BEAUTIFUL low mile R90/6 back on the lift to get our rehab completed!
We got this BEAUTIFUL low mile R90/6 running, and put on a 423 mile test ride. We found a few flaws, but we are taking care of them all now!
First, and most important, somebody previously mangled the main wire harness; so it gets a really nice used one! The motor checks out very well, performance wise, but there are some minor oil leaks, so we are replacing the flywheel seal and oil pump O'ring. While we are there we will clean and inspect the clutch. Next we are pulling the heads and cylinders on both sides to replace the pushrod tube seals. Only the left side has a minor leak, but we are going ahead and doing both sides.
We're going to mount & balance new tires, and finish doing the 10K Major Service which was interrupted when we decided that we needed to get All the Florida BMWs running and extensive test ridden, to see what we really had.
Looks like the steering neck bearing needs serviced / replaced. While the fork is off for the bearing, we'll go through the forks too.
The test ride showed us that the indicator lights were not functioning correctly consistently; so we are going to install a new LED Kat Dash instrument board. While we have the instrument case apart, we'll clean and service the Speedo & Tach for continued optimum performance.
We'll keep you posted on how it's all going!
