Final pics of 350 project

Post by desmophil »

At last the '69 350 Mark 3D restoration is finished. Only took 2 years !!

It starts easily (after backing off the timing a bit - ouch) and rides really well.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas.

That is one sensational bit of work desmophil. You made me hanker even more to own a single. Top job. There is a lovely 450 on Aussie ebay at present but $18,000 opening bid. Yowch!!! He`ll probably get too, they pull top dollar these days.

I got a little confused to begin with as the post before yours by smokem is a 350 mid build then your 350 final pic`s had me thinking "wow this guy don`t mess around". Your underslung pipe and drum brakes gave you away, not to mention different names.

Thanks for the comments. The idea was to keep it as stock as posible (as sold in Australia) which is why I stuck to the steel rims etc.

According to the importers and my fading memory, only 27 examples of this model were originally sold in this country. I think lots more may have been privately imported over the years.

If anyone knows where to source that seat trim I would be most grateful to find out.

The seat trim is very difficult to get. I bought a complete seat in poor condition to get the trim. I haven't seen too many come up recently. Your best chance is to get on to an American BMW dealer and try to get R75 alloy seat trim eg

Have you tried Eldorado in South Australia? They did my 750 GT seat including new alloy trim. I've seen a lot of their work and it is top shelf.

Stunning! You've given us all something to aim for.
