"This bike was on my list of keepers, but Parkinson’s Disease is eroding my riding skills so that the Beemer is incompatible with long rides like trans-USA (four on the BMW and twice on a 1929 INDIAN Scout)."
This motorcycle has served Jerry Hatfield very well over the past 15 plus years. His disease precludes him from his favorite activity, riding, so It is time for a new owner to enjoy this motorcycle.
36,200 miles showing on a working speedometer
Paint is in great shape, minimal scratches if any. The bike could use a good detail.
Sheet metal is in excellent condition and well fit. This was originally a 1973 "Boxer" that Jerry Hatfield decided to have customized for his riding which included a tank change.
Chrome is in good shape and in need of a good cleaning
This motorcycle is in good mechanical condition. Carburetors balanced for slow steady idle in typical hot weather. This bike has seen limited duty for the past few years because of the increased difficulty of the advance of Parkinson’s disease. Bike could use a good service and cleaning to make it road worthy and extra presentable.
Rims are aluminum with Stainless steel spokes and nipples.
Front Tire is 3.25 X 19 on excellent condition for tread but unknown by date

Replica Krauser quick-installation/removal saddlebags. Two sets of saddlebag keys, i.e.
2 keys to lock bags to luggage rack; and two keys to lock saddlebag “lids” closed. Transparent yellow plastic purse stores bag keys in the toolbox container. Standard-USA style midlevel handlebars. German-style police handlebars; rare – basically unobtanium. I have a few bits and pieces that I was going to use for spring cleaning- notably, a new air cleaner.
