Reader Ride. A sweet BMW R51/3

Brian Bold sends in this nicely modded BMW.  While I’m not an old school BMW expert by any stretch I know what I like and I love the style and line.

Here are some pictures of my BMW R51/3
The fairing is a Peel, Hoske tank and mufflers, Dellorto SS1 carbs. A lot of fun to ride, now it needs to just stop raining so I can spend more then 20 minutes around the neighborhood between rain.

  1. Rain? Isn’t that why they made that fairing? Signed- Someone from So. Cal. Seriously,51/3’s are my favorite BMW and that is a masterpiece. What a beauty.
