    Guzzis cos them are just Beemers with Pert Boobies

    Mainly because it's a workshop meeting, we need to be able to repair these antique motorcycles without computers cos there's no place to plug one into..
    Also they have C A R B U R E T T O R S not new fangled injectors..
    Also be whipping a g/box off and other easy [ when you know how ] jobs..


    No use at all to you computerised modern GS riders

    { I KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT OILHEAD OR CHAINGANG BMW's { apart from what oil}so it's a waste of time asking me..
    BUT I've had Airheads on the road since 1972}


    Space is at a premium and this is the first such event, lets see how this goes and maybe next year try and educate you MODERN GS riders into the intricacies of the old school BEEMERS


    If it's that important to you, borrow or buy a cheap airhead of Fleabay and we'll be glad to see you

    You can even Van or Trailer it down, as long as you have one in your company ....
    You tell 'em Proff...we are all right behind

    feckin' wannabees can go and play in car park

    Remember, we are only here for a good time, not a long time !

    Is there another type of ST airhead then?

    she could also do with having the push rod tubes and seals changed, I could bring them along if someone fancies showing me how to do it?

    Can I bring my box of bits for someone to put back together for me.

    Oh and the frame needs stoving

    Suffice to say the RS won't be finished in time for the event.
    Can I come on the oil head to gain much required valuable experience.

    I will grab some stainless ones, what else do I need to order to do this job? I am guessing a top end gasket set, does that come with pushrod seals? and will one of the people going have a drift to knock them home, or do I need to buy one of those too?

    I'm hoping one of the Gurus will bring his drift
    when you buy the tubes they sometimes come with the seals otherwise they should ask waste of time fitting new tubes on old seals
    yup top gasket set
    Oil and filters will be available

    I have put a plan in place (I know he's my brother but some things are worth the sacrifice ).
