What a fantastic and inspiring video. As a creative working in a corporate advertising environment, I relate to his escape to the garage as a creative outlet to offset corporate creative work. The 2002 in his garage looks amazing as well. Great taste sir!
Thanks! I’m happy to say that I am finally out of advertising! Well… it is like the mafia… I’ll never be completely out…
I am just continually blown away by the high level of craftsmanship that goes into making these videos. The editing, music and most of all cinematography is always of a high level. It really brings to life the subject matter and makes the vehicles shine that much more. Keep it up petro
Nice build i love old BMWs. Back in the 80s I bought s a used emerald green toaster tank R75/5 short swing arm. I loved that bike even though it was frightening at speed. I brought it with me when I moved from Denver to San Francisco, and totaled it when an old Galaxy 500 ran a stop sign in front me. I spend several years rebuilding it. I got it back on the road after several years of rebuilding. I sold it back in 89 and have missed it ever since.
Wonderful motorcycle (and I don’t even like bikes). Just out of interest, what is the engine size – it looks quite large – and are the brakes drum brakes? Might be an interesting combination at speed…
The bike started out as a R75 (750CC) however I put a larger set of pistons in it, lightened the flywheel, and some other mods that took it up to around 900cc. And yes… drum brakes can either work just ok…. or just slow you down. These work… :):)
what an great story, i love the cafe style bike, well done Josh.
why can’t everyday be a Tuesday, then we would not have to wait a full week for a new episode.
Beautiful bike and a fabulous film about a thoroughly nice chap. Keep up the continued good work Petrolicious and Drive Tastefully…
He seems like a nice guy and the bike is beautiful. Also, I’d like to compliment on the photography in this video, truly exceptional. By the way, yes it did sound as good as I’d imagined.
Magnificent but the end of this video is nothing short of a Masterpiece!!!
Good lord I love petrolicious.
Beautiful job on the bike. I love the sound. If I may ask what mufflers you are using? My R100RS would sure like to have that sound. 🙂
Hey Marc, The mufflers are actually from a 1937 BMW that I modified to fit the R75 Frame.
Josh- Dude, I am NOT a motorcycle guy, never was, always a car guy, but i can now say that I have a favorite motorcycle.. – the one you built.. wonderful.. thx Kurt
