I Spy: New York City Blacked Out BMW R60/7

Some of the motorcycles parked outside of the Motorcycle Show at the Javitz Center in New York City were just as interesting to look at as the ones that were parked inside. I spied this blacked-out modified BMW R60/7 parked at the curb. So Mad Max-y!

    I dig those bar-end turn signals! I don’t believe I’ve ever seen any of those.

    It’s good to see old but very serviceable motorcycles with the “patinah” on them…

    Mrs Nikos has a similar “old” BMW in the shed but it is now leaking oil from the back end but seeing these photos has given me renewed enthusiasm for the restoration job!

    I just noticed that the mirrors are mounted on the headlamp – just where the indicators “should” be!

    Good question! Ms. Fuzzygalore – The rear saddle has that “jockey” grab handle and a long coil spring runs underneath – maybe it is a crude form of ejector seat !!

    Urals and MZ’s used to have seats like that. In fact I think the Ural’s still do. Matt black, a winning paint scheme.
