Hi People, This is my first time on this and any forum! I,ve just bought on ebay a 1981 BMW R65, it has been standing for the last 10 years and doesn't,t run. Question is... It,s got 17,000 k,s on the clock, no idea if it's first second or even third time round. I thought if I could find out what the original factory fitted tyres were it would give me an idea if it's the first time round... Does any one know??? I,ve bought it as a long term project, I know very little about bikes, I ride a scooter for fun but haven,t really had bikes since I was a kid ( currently going through a mid life crisis according to my wife!!!) It comes with a Haynes manual and at present a lot of enthusiasm from me, we,ll see if that lasts? Any way no doubt I will be posting many questions in the months to come, so hi and thank you in advance for all the knowledge that you guys may be able to impart. Cheers Ash (what the hell have I got myself into?) P.s what,s a tag?
