1976 BMW R90/6
Timeless reliable classic
Small leak at the transmission and condenser. That's it.
This bike was made for the shade tree mechanic. It's so easy to work on and runs just great. It's also a timeless classic that would be hard to lose money on.
It was my first bike and I rarely ride it because of my R1200C, I still can't let it go. It's simply a wonderful machine that I am hard pressed to find fault with.
Whenever I thought of BMW motorcycles, this bike was the one I pictured and still do.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I just finished reading some general reviews about BMW R90/6's, and have to disagree with one comment that was somewhat universal in them. I find this bike harder to work on than the old Honda's and Moto Guzzi that I have had in the past.

I agree, the Moto Guzzi and Honda CB750 were (are) great bikes and are easy to work on, but comparing the CB750 to the R90/6 is a little apples/oranges. I had to remove the engine from the frame on my CB 750 to replace a valve cover gasket! One doesn't have such problems with the R90!
