Rebuilt the front calipers on my new to me rain bike this past weekend. Hoped it would fix, but kinda of knew it wasn't going to solve, the brake drag issue. Now to figure out why the brake continues to drag... Think I may have a warped rotor.

Just as usual, building a bike or two .....


First, finished this 1991 BMW R100GS before it became really cold

It almost felled off the trailer on Mass Pike on my way back from Maine





I have gone through it from head to toe, and it's ready for some real adventure. I was able to take it out for a real ride before snow.






Then moved on to this 1987 BMW R65 that I picked it off a street from NYC




yep .... That's how it parked



Took everything off, painted frame and some other parts







Got it ran again

It's going to be my hipster bike

Ah shit. Forgot about the GS500. Gotta figure out why that thing isn't running right and get a new battery for it.
