Cadbike #33, the BMW Bobber

I guess it must have been in 1987 that I bought
a wrecked BMW R90S. It had smashed into a curb
and landed in a canal, when I bought it there was still canal water in engine and gearbox.

Frame and forks were too smashed up to be saved.
I bought a frame of a R51 with a raked neck
and used all kinds of parts to build a running ratbike. In 2005 I decided to rebuild it and
ofcourse things went a bit further than planned..

I planned the whole bike in CAD first and then
together with Aad Heemskerk started building.
