BMW R27 Restoration

Presented by redbug2


Headlight seems to be in good shape, Key moves and I was able to remove it.   2007-02-19 03:29:09 This is the left side of the bike.   2007-02-19 05:10:26 The tank is in decent shape, no dents. Unable to open cover, will need to work on that.   2007-02-19 00:00:00 Inside of tank is rusty, will require a new coating.   2007-02-19 00:00:00 Engine and transmission totally frozen. Soaking in penetrating oil. Many broken bolts and studs.   2007-02-19 00:00:00
Cover has points piece with slots which is stuck tight in cover, more penetrating oil....   2007-03-13 06:44:45 Split the generator cover open after a lot of work. Generator stator was rusted tight... Lots of rust inside....   2007-03-13 06:42:24 Finally got the piston out after a lot of pounding...   2007-10-29 06:22:21 Rusted nicely, cam chain is loose and was slapping around when it did run in the past... Piston still not moving... More penetrating oil, everywhere!   2007-03-13 06:47:25 After some more tapping, pullers, and wedges I was able to split the transmission, lots of rust.....   2007-10-29 06:25:00
