I’m not sure where to begin on this bike. Every part on the bike has just been touched. I began with a 22K mile GSPD Classic which was a bit tattered and did a complete nut and bolt restoration. Frame and all black pieces were fully media blasted and powder coated.
All of the plastics, with the exception of the fuel tank, were prepped and painted in the proper Avus black. Tank was not painted because it was in such great condition and because the BMW decals are no longer available. Paint match is great, pics speak for themselves.
The motor was stripped for cleaning and reconditioning. The push rod tubes were replaced and so the top end was removed, inspected and reassembled. Compression check shows 140 lbs in each cylinder. Every seal in the motor was replaced. Of course new gasket set was installed. Since it was out I replaced the oil pressure switch.
Transmission was opened and examined and found to be in excellent order. All new seals and gaskets and then resealed up and reinstalled. Since it was out I replaced the neutral switch. All bearings in drive line were replaced, swing arm, both wheels and the steering head. Rear drive was cleaned and inspected. Drive shaft was inspected and was in fine shape.
Front and rear brakes were both serviced, pads replaced and new front brake lines and new front master cylinder were installed. I also installed a brand new front rotor. I replaced the original oil cooler with a brand new BMW oil cooler and also replaced the lines with new.
Rear shock and front fork springs are by Progressive.
All cables have been replaced. Clutch, Throttle, Choke, and rear brake cables, brand new BMW OEM.
I basically just started at one end of the bike and ordered anything that seemed worn, weathered or in need of replacement.
New windscreen and windscreen hardware, new hand guards and hand grips. two new mirrors. New gasket for the fuel tank storage compartment. New hardware for front axle and brake caliper.
Both carbs have been rebuilt with oem parts. New spark plug wires and spark plug ends. New braided fuel lines and new rubber and plastic snorkels for the carbs.
All new BMW exhaust clamps with the proper exhaust gaskets installed. I used stainless steel hardware whenever the hardness of the bolt and nut was not a critical issue.
The seat is the single seat shown in the pics by Corbin. I do not have the stock single seat. I do have a stock dual seat that will go with the bike but it will need to be recovered. I did not restore the stock dual seat.
The bike comes with the stock saddlebags as pictured. They are sound and work properly but are a bit sun faded. All the locks are keyed together with the original BMW key.
I replaced all the BMW roundel logos with new oem pieces. All rubber bumpers and other miscellaneous pieces were replaced.
Both wheels were soda blasted and left in that matte aluminum look rather than being re-polished.
Everything works as it should. All switches, lights, etc are in proper working order.
The bike was fitted with the 450 watt Enduralast charging system upgrading the alternator so that about any electric accessories can be safely added as you see fit.
So, that is about it. Basically it is one of the nicest examples of the 95 GSPD Classic that you will find. It runs as good as it looks and it will hold its value. They imported 70 of these machines and you can have one. Bike is ready for any trip you want to take.
Yes, engine and frame numbers match.
