Ersatzteileliste and Handbuch - Pre War

All, or nearly all, BMW parts books and owners manuals for pre war bikes are available as reprints (there generally are no separate workshop manuals). Check with Bench Mark Works for a North American source or else contact one of the German vendors. If you have the opportunity to visit one of the big vintage bike flea markets in Germany, such as Veterama, there will be someone there vending these manuals. They typically cost €20-25 each.
