This 1974 BMW R90/6 is Red, and has a Black Hannigan Touring Fairing mounted, plus a pair of Krauser Saddlebags.

The bike has 53,350 miles on it. It starts and runs well. The Engine and Frame numbers are matching.

With the Hannigan Touring fairing and Krauser Saddlebags with Rack, this bike would be a wonderful all weather touring bike, or make a daily commuter that would go a long ways in protecting your work clothing. The Hannigan is undoubtedly the pinnacle of aftermarket design. The air is very still behind the fairing. In the rain at speed, only your feet get wet, until you stop. I have seen a smoker light his cigarette at highway speeds using a Zippo! EXCELLENT protection!

Cosmetically it is Fair, but we have done significant Service work on it to make it reliable. First we chemically cleaned the old stale fuel out of the fuel tank, and cleaned the float bowls and carburetor jets and installed new float bowl gaskets. We installed new BMW Original Continental Braided Cloth covered fuel lines and inline fuel filters.

The motor had some oil leaks at the cylinder bases, so we removed the motor top end and resealed it with proper gaskets and pushrod seals. While the motor top end was apart, we inspected and decarboned the cylinder heads, and lapped the valve seats to insure optimum performance. Then we changed the motor oil and oil filter.

We torqued the heads and adjusted the valves, set the timing, and synchronized the carburetors.

We fixed some lighting issues, so now all electrics work correctly, except the charging indicator, which is still intermittent (it IS charging as designed, but sometimes the light flickers).

Lastly, we inspected and serviced the wheel bearings in both wheels.

Finally, we gave it a good long test ride for a few days to insure it would start and run and perform predictably.

What this bike needs now is a loving home, and some cosmetic detail work.
