Hi from West Yorkshire

Postby Stephen400 » Fri Jan 19, 2024 12:06 am

Hi all,

Bought the cheapest R1200S in the country last year. 2006 with 107k on the clock.

I assume a previous owner used this forum as there were boxertrix decals on the tail.

Bought the bike for a cheap summer bike but as with most things in my life I couldn’t just leave it be…

I’ve stripped it down to bare bones, powder coated everything, fit a 2019 DOHC engine

I’m hoping to still have it ready for summer but it’s turned into a total money pit :D

Lookin for a few bits in the classifieds… if anyone’s interested I’ll make a thread documenting my progress :)

Hi Stephen,

Holy cow that looks amazing so far!

I for one would love to see the progress, get it up on the site. :bounce:

Good luck with searching for the parts.

Watching with interest.

Hello and welcome to our little bit of the www.

Sounds an interesting project, if it’s up and running there’s a Welsh weekend in May in Llangollen if you’re interested.

R1200S and loving it !

Fingers crossed for May, it might not be finished but should certainly be rideable.

What’s the date? I’ll see if I can fit it in the diary :)
