jesuss BLUNT - yourS is a honey - and the right color!



wow so is yours CD

I love that leather tank cover. I need one of those.. My jacket drags on my paint when getting on and off. Do you know where I can get one for my R69s?

By the way, This bike is the only thing with a motor Ive ever bought that im not upside down in. Every car ive ever built is worth 1/2 what i have into it. I bought this restored and got it for about 1/2 what its worth

Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
