|Aluminum bars. Split fuel tank with left and right sides that bolt together in the middle. R. Muhle tachometer.|
|Notice on the rim the four dots. These are rivets where the rim was seamed together. This is a steel wheel. The R51RS used a similar seam and rivet design, although in aluminum.|
|Notice the removeable frame reinforcing tubes on the side of the frame. Attached obviously with bolts as there removal is required to pull the transmission or motor. The rear set of pegs is obviously not for a passenger!|
|Single Amal Fischer carburetor feeding the kompressor.|
|Sprung drilastic saddle. Partial view of "rennbrotchen".|
|"Lightened" brake pedal and hand shift lever.|
The third bike is one that was, for a time, here in the US. It was sold a couple of years ago to a wealthy collector in Germany. The last time I saw it, it was in a thousand pieces being reverse engineered to make a small series of replicas.
The fourth bike needs no introduction, the ex-Meier, ex-Surtees 1939 TT winning kompressor in the collection of BMW in Munich.
