BMW R71 replica from the 1940's.
Bought it in Shanghai and it is now in Indiana.
Cheers,

That is cool. I think Doltmo's wife rides a BMW bike too.

Made another voyage to check out an original Cyclone road model. This was the 33rd bike built in 1913. It still has the original frame, one of just a few that can claim that. Lane, the owner is 84 and he and my Dad hit it off great. He has owned it since 1970 when he was working for the Harrah's auto collection in Vegas and it came out of a big collection. Bought it from the widow story. In Oregon now.

As recently as a couple years ago he's run it on 2 day road rally's for vintage bikes.
