Motorcycle Classics Feature – 1974 BMW R90/6 Custom

In 2013, Motorcycle Classics and Dairyland Insurance teamed up for the “Race to Rebuild Sweepstakes“, where they customized a BMW R90/6 with a whole bunch of goodies and then gave it away to a lucky man…who’s now selling the custom.

BMW R90 Motorcycle Classics Custom - In Motion

This bike (VIN: 4931843) features a Motogadget gauge setup, Gazi shocks, Race Tech fork brace, new Mikuni carbs with custom intake manifolds, Dunstall replica exhaust, Spiegler brakes, and plenty more. The fairing is from a Ducati and the bodywork is painted in a two tone dark smoke scheme. In the last two years the seller has only put 900 miles on the bike – the odometer now shows 40,300. The article on the build says the carbs could use some adjustment of the jets, and the seller says that should still be attended to. It’s interesting seeing how the sweepstakes ended – I wonder if there were any rules on how long the seller had to keep it before he could sell the bike. If you won, would you feel an obligation to keep the bike, or ride it more than ~450 miles a year?
