What a nice backroad barnstormer! I like that the suspension is original(ish). A lot of these builds tend to a bit too many modern with forks and swingarm upgrades that are overkill IMO. This looks to be be a great ride! Bravo!

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.

Some pics from Berlin Germany.
This bike cost 3 month hard work, the weight is 180 kilo, 105HP, its look like a BMW, but it is an Ducati (because the frame is from a Duc!)
I speechless. What a great build!
Carlos sent in some fantastic Royal Enfield pics recently and is kind enough to send in these beautiful BMW shots of his friends bike.
He Writes in:
It’s fantastic to see how much care u have for bikes.
So, after having sent you some pics of my Royal, I decided to send you as well some pics of a nice BMW R 50 from 1955. “ She “ came from Germany and was restored as the ones used by the Afrika Korps in north Africa during the WW ll by Rommel. “She “ belongs to a great friend of mine. Hope you like it as well.
Thank You Carlos!
