Didn't the R65 LS come standard with white snowflakes?
The ones on my R65 is stock, so I assume it came white from BMW.

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

I can see your dilemma man, white snowflakes are so unnatural. I'd vapor blast them and powder coat clear, or some other protective coating. Snowflakes are strong wheels. Thanks ME. I'm trying to figure out if these white wheels were originally powder coated. If so, it'll be costly to remove and re...

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

Nice looking K bike, there, sir. Have away at that R65, I say. But, as mentioned, brown seat, wrapped headers and my input "Knobby tires" will make the bike as interesting as putting loud exhausts on a Harley. I like to see contrast between the tire color and the wheel color, but that is not curren...

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

But you still have that luscious handle for lifting the bike onto the centerstand! That was one of my favorite features of the K bikes. The 79 R65 has a poor centerstand design. I rode mine for 35 years. I am going in for my 4th bi-lateral hernia repair next month. I am pretty sure that keeping my ...

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

Rob V,

Here's a pic of the left side. I relocated the ignition key to that side, so I was not able to put a side cover bag there. Instead, I made a side panel/cover using material from an aluminum cookie baking tray. It came out ok to my liking. Thanks for the compliment.

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

Thanks Ducky. Very cute. ZM will love it. I bought a Vespa back in 1971 for $20 and got it registered. One of the head studs (or possibly bolts) was stripped so I did the usual Australian trick and used fencing wire to stop the head from flapping. I had to carry vice-grips with me to twitch the wir...

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

Thanks Airbear. Nothing special about the Vespa. It's not a vintage model. Just something to put around the neighborhood with the kidos.

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

Thank you all for your inputs. I completely understand everyone's point of view. I have a modified K75, but always wanted an airhead. I stumbled onto this one from a local collector. He bought a bunch of airheads to add to his rental fleet. Come to find out, he was not able to get insurance for olde...
