Race to Rebuild: 1974 BMW R90/6 (Video)

By Richard Backus

Motorcycle Classics and Dairyland Cycle Insurance teamed up to build a custom classic out of a 1974 BMW R90/6. We found our project bike in Colorado and had it delivered to MC HQ in Kansas, where we got our first look at the "bones" of the build.
