I'm pleased to say I've added an R51/1 to the garage. Of the very few things I need for it are an original speedo and new floats for the carbs.

Can anyone confirm float weights and a supplier?

Floats

Thanks Mike,

Believe it or not I met a guy who lives 15 min from me who had a draw full of Bing parts, and a lock up full of 1960's BMW parts including a R750.

Regards

John

John, I went back and reread

John,

I went back and reread your post. I have never heard the term a R51/1 before? You meant to say a R51, correct? It was R51, than R51/2 and the R51/3.

Mike

R51

Hi Mike,

That's correct. R51 June 1939, no down tube under seat (ref R66 thread). Pre war UK AFN Ltd. import, full history. Needs original AF carbs (very expensive!) and mph speedo (unobtainable).

Any update on the battery boxes?

Regards,

John

John, Waiting on my next box

John,

Waiting on my next box of battery boxes, they are coming and I will send them out. These are like hot cakes.

Mike
