So... I ragged on Scotty for not including hisownself in the new You show me yours and I'll show you mine
thread and here I am posting photos without my mug in 'em. I have to wait for my bride to return from her business trip next week just to get her finger on the shutter.
This is The Mexico Bike
, an R65 just as I acquired it from the famous Sanford Collection in Austin, Texas. Note the two-toned seat cover, bar ends and the white paint. I'll save what I know as to how the bike was named The Mexico Bike
for another time.
Although I still refer to this R65 as The Mexico Bike
, it now has a new look. With the BMW 501-ish paint and a new seat cover, it has a whole new personality. The bike is still a work-in-progress with another bits waiting on the bench.
Later this week I'll post a pic of both myself and my other R65, Blackie
Scotty, you have my word.
