Mechanic for BMW cafe racer project

Discussion in 'Businesses and Service Providers' at netrider.net.au started by bgunsberger, Mar 26, 2008.

  1. Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone could recommend a mechanic in Sydney to talk to about a BMW cafe racer project. I'm looking at a mid 70's /5,6 or 7 and would love to get an idea of what I'm getting myself into and what is practical to go myself vs what I should get professional help for.

    Also, if anyone has any personal experience, I'd love to hear that too.


  2. hello mate,

    I would be of more helpf you wanted one from canberra (member of the ACT BMW club) but try these local ones.

    Ben (currently working at Balmain Motorcycles) i believe worked on BMW's for years and has always impressed me as a friendly bloke- have a chat to him.

    Motorhansa (spelling?) are a BMW mechanic shop in rydalmere (spelling?) and they might also be worth a chat, but i've dealt with them- i only know they are there.

    Let me know how you go as i finished a rat racer project on an old honda (ON a tight budget) last year and have been looking at the R75's liking what what i see potential wise.

  3. Only heard about these guys elsewhere - MMT, at the end of East Street,Granville. 9637 0277

    Had my starter motor replaced by Motohansa at Rydalmere - asked them about servicing the bike and they said stuff like valves aren't that hard and tried to sell me a manual - so I'll be giving it a go :shock:

    Found about this guy in Brookvale, recommended by a friend of mine - loves the old BMW's and worth a call; Paradise motorcycles 9939 7075
