Great vid, it did however spark a question for me, is there a page or is there a sister page of some sort specializing in bikes only? This site is a favorite of mine but my love of cars is far over ruled by motorcycles. Would be great to have that or more vintage bike posts!

Perhaps the most beautifully produced video yet. Thanks again for such a wonderful story. I tip my in honor of those creations; beautiful.

Oh boy, Sumisura’s Beemers. I do love this guy’s work. The R80-based JM.01.2 with the cowled wheels and the varnished wood seat, the SRS Nine-T, and the Deuxieme are unique and stunning kinetic sculptures.
Good job on the video, Petrolicious, in showcasing another sweet build.

I have a 1979 R65 in my garage, so I know what he means when he says that he gets enjoyment just by going out there and looking at it. I found that my enjoyment doubled simply by replacing the stock, boxy valve covers with the older curvy ones (like he has).

It would be good to know what parts came from when. Looks like the engine is the only thing that is from the 70’s, and most everything else is from the 60’s.

OK, I’m not a bike guy at all, but this video could turn me into one! Frankly, these classic BMW’s make current pimped-out Harley’s seem a little garish.

I’ve been following this site for a few months, have gone through the back pages and loved many of the articles and videos here, but nothing made an impression enough to [i]need[/i] to register & comment, but this one did. Beautiful bikes, tailor made and with so much class and personality. Mr. Augello has made something beautiful. I hope to make or be a part of something like this some day, hopefully sooner than later. Thanks for making this video.
