Good Day Gentlemen,

I was curious if there are any member in Connecticut that could help educate a new guy...(me). Also looking to see if there are any known or recommended mechanics or shops that could accomplish some of the more detailed repairs. Danke schon

Solomoto in Greenwich,

Solomoto in Greenwich, CT.
(203) 531-5252
I have not used them for my /2 but have for other BMW's. Specialize in older, vintage bikes, many marquees.

MAX BMW in Brookfield, CT. (Max has 4 locations, this is the one I use).
(203) 740-1270
Old and Vintage models are a specialty. Master Mechanic Phil Cheney seems to touch and supervise most of the department.
If you request him to take care of your bike there is sometimes a waiting time for him to get around to it. Worth the wait, great guy and an owner of an r60/s himself. He will talk your ear off with information.
This is where I went in 2014 for all around service putting things back the way they should be. Have not been back there until about a month ago to have some minor carb issue taken care of.
All service since then by me. Just needed a good common denominator to start from.
Francis in Parts is a great source for parts and parts information, especially the older bikes.
Hope this is helpful.
