Thank you very much for your E-Mail with congrats for my Beamer to be the Bike of the Week. It was a big surprise after watching all these great Bikes on cafe racer TV`s website…

Here is a short description of my Bike:

It’s a BMW R75/6 from 1976 with a 1000cc BigBore engine with a hot cam, porting, etc. It has a Rare “Heinrich”Gas Tank, aftermarket stainless steel Norton pipes, Raask rear sets, 38 Dell`Orto carbs with velocity stacks, self made instrument housing and tail light, rare “Magura” clip ons, a self made alloy seat with bum stop made with real leather, a modified frame, double brake disc and lots of polished Parts…

I bought this Bike 3 Years ago as a bad-restored Motorcycle with big problems i.e.: the engine was not running, etc. After the engine was running I decided to ride to the Ace Cafe in London, which is about 1200 miles from my hometown Munich/Germany. That was a great Adventure and you can believe, ironically, of course, after I got home the Bike was disassembled and after 1 year it rolled out of my garage as what you see before you. I did it with my own hands and no shop was involved!

I am 48 years old and a Beamer like this was my first motorcycle when I was 18 so you can imagine how pleased I am with the result. Back to the Roots! So the best wishes to the staff of the Cafe Racer TV, you`re doing an great job!
