I don't know much about this era bikes, but this looks sharp. Vech has had quite a bit to do with its restoration. I'm sure it's worth what he wants...

R12 on Ebay

I'm pretty sure that's Mike Dunn's bike, who is pretty active over on the Kradrider yahoo list. If so, Vech does seem proud about how it turned out. The engine was apparently a piece of junk by the time it got to him, and they had to find a new one for it.

R12 on Ebay

This is what Vech had to say about it (taken from the /2 Yahoo list):

And what he says about the work is true. I did exactly what is described in the ebay ad.

I put 100 miles on it, test riding the bike after I was finished with it.

I must say, he will be sorry when it is gone. You can always make money, but good running R12's are hard to find.

Sincerely,

Vech

This is true, it was my bike. I saw her again a few weeks ago. The new owner really takes care of the bike and she is safe and sound.

Wish my R12 was in as good a condition for the $20k (or so :roll: ) I have in it. At least it's coming back together finally.

Darryl,

That R12 i had was without a doubt, PERFECT except for the paint. I had everything right . I miss the bike, you sould be happy, you still have one. I have a garage with two bikes right now, neither one of them are mine. I am still saving for my Zundapp K500.

Mike

I got to ride a K500 on a vintage rally in Germany. What a sweet bike. Those Zuendapps make BMWs feel flimsy. You'll have a great time when you get it.
