It's alive!

I am embarrassed to admit this but the S has not been running in 1.5 yrs. I started in Nov. '16 to install Lenny's sprockets and a clutch disc spacer for more engagement on the transmission input shaft. Finally got it running again yesterday.

Since I had another bike to ride the project just kept getting pushed back. Right after I took it apart the vacuum sucked up a small black part as I passed by the S. I tore the vacuum bag apart but didn't find the piece. That has been on my mind but yesterday all the parts I needed were still there.

I hope to do a trip on the S this summer.

Hope that is steam because we all know BMWs do not burn oil.
