This is the English translation of the first volume of a two-part edition about BMW’s two-valve boxers (“Airheads”). Volume 1 covers all models with twin shocks on the rear swing arm.
50 years ago, a unique success story had begun with BMW’s first /5 models. It came to a close with the final R 80 GS Basic in 1996, after 250,000 models had left the assembly lines.
Volume 1 covers the /5, /6 and /7 series extensively. In addition, the following series built before 1985 are also introduced in detail: R 90 S, R 45, R 65 and R 65 LS as well as R 80 RT, R 100 CS, R 100 T, R 100 RT and R 100 RS.
Never before have technical details been presented as thoroughly and as detailed as in this book. This includes a complete set of colours and equipment details. The numerous and often invisible changes and adjustments made by BMW during production have been listed meticulously, as well. In addition, there is a complete list of frame numbers as well as advice on buying and refurbishing airhead models. A separate chapter deals with BMW models built for the U.S. market.
We have not restricted ourselves to technical data. Numerous interviews with BMW developers and engineers provide an unrivalled insight into the history of airheads.
