I didn’t get a lot of info on this. Can someone enlighten me? I suspect it’s a “knock off” kitted out to look like an early BMW? Or am I way off here. Not my area of expertise… obviously. This was sent to me as a for sale post way back in November so I would think it’s sold by now. But all the same… Great looking scoot though!
Thanks to Matt Krsul. Sorry about the foul-ups. I have a “legendary” (in a bad way) spam filter. Please do keep em coming!
I had sent this before as well as a couple others and never did see anything. I am resending this one.
A complete ground up restoration for a customer on this 1967 CL77 Scrambler. Customer did not want a “Perfect” one, but one he would be comfortable riding as well as showing.
Interesting sidenote: My father started the Honda Dealership in Butte in 1961. I remember Jim buying Honda’s at our family store back then. This was not one of them but a neat story non the less.
I have more bikes to send photos of as time permits.
Mariano Labat sends in some before and after pics of this excellent NSU rebuild. Very impressive!
Hello, my name is Mariano and I live in Argentina.
(I bought) this bike two years ago with the idea of restoring it. After much work the finish. I wanted to share this with your blog.
Greetings and thanks
Thank you Mariano! You did Fantastic Job!
Some nice build pics as well. I really like that engine stand!
Now THAT”S a save! Hard to believe it’s the same bike. For more shots of the bike in process take a few minutes and check out his gallery pages. There’s a lot of other excellent Ducati shots there as well. Nicely done Craig!

I saw a link to your site on Ductalk which led to some before and after photos of a Ducati single. Here’s my version of a similar bike… it’s a 1966 Ducati 160 Monza Jr that was restyled using older Ducati bodywork.
After spending too many years working on it on and off I finally got it back on the road just in time for the vintage bike festival at Barber Motorsports last year. With about 15 miles on the bike we threw it on the trailer and drove 13 hours to get there. Took it off the trailer and it ran great all weekend.
There’s a real satisfaction that’s hard to explain to have literally held your classic motorcycle’s crankshaft in your hands and brought the bike all the way back. That’s one hell of a save for one hell of a nice classic. Thanks to Brian Conner for the album links. Here’s a link to the complete smugmug album thread. Great Stuff.
When I look at builds like this it humbles me. I realize that comparatively, I’m lazy slob who spends too much time thinking and not enough doing. Off to the shop with me to make amends to the gods of the mods..
And for crying out loud head over to the ADV rider build thread and check out the full history on this bike.
As you read in the title, the project was to fix an old beaten up 1965 Royal Enfield to a Scrambler. I live in New Delhi, India and this Enfield was originally imported from UK. All pics from start till today are updated on my advrider thread. Here’s the link :: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=633461
Also a little history on the project, this was my second project (you also featured my other project on your website. It was a Royal Enfield Cafe Racer). This has been named after my wife too (Richa + Enfield = Richenfield). Also, no fancy machines were involved in making of this bike as you will see in the pics, all custom work was done by hand and all body work was done the same way.
