The idea of this web site was born out of frustration;
the frustration of not being able to find the information I wanted, when I
wanted it. Have you ever tried to find that elusive detail regarding the BMW
that you're in the middle of rebuilding? Have you ever tried to find details
of the original colour scheme and pin striping of that R100S you're trying
to restore to it's original glory? I have 'cos I service, repair and restore
BMW's for a living and a restoration can be extremely frustrating when
information isn't available!
Much of the information on this site can be obtained
elsewhere if you're prepared to spend a lot of time searching but as far as
I can discover, there is no one place where you can find it all - in fact
colour schemes do not seem to appear anywhere and the rest can be very
difficult to find.
The idea of this site is to bring all information
together in one place so that all you BMW enthusiasts out there in Cyber
Space can easily find the information you need. This is a long term project
and much of this site is "In Progress" and is likely to be so for years to
come as I do have a living to earn too and it is extremely time consuming
finding and putting this information together! I have spent considerable
time double checking the information that is included but cannot guarantee
that all information is free of mistakes - if you spot any errors, please
mail me and let me
Please help me to improve this site by
sending any and all
BMW motorcycle related information, photos etc that you may have but please
ensure that what you send is not copyrighted to someone else or at least let
me know if it is copyright so that I can ask the owner for permission to use
it. If sending machine photos please try to include as much information as
possible (model, year, colour, scheme number etc. the colour scheme
number can be found on the rear mudguard).
Your suggestions for
links to appropriate sites will be much appreciated and all will be
considered and included should I feel that they are appropriate. So.......
please help by submitting links to your favourite BMW sites and by sending
any relevant information or photo's you may have that aren't already
included on this site.
