I am pleased to have been invited to join after posting an article on the R90s Worldnet discussion group. I am an ex-patriated American living and working in Europe for 25 years, and now residing in Switzerland. I own a pair of 1974 R90s'. One in Silver Smoke, and the other in "Swiss Flag" Café Racer trim. Here in Switzerland we may not be able to ride fast, but we've got some of the greatest twisty and scenic back roads anywhere.
Best regards, Kirk

This looks fantastic. As a long-term airhead enthusiast I stumbled across your resource completely by accident. I am a member of the US-based Airheads club and have long hoped for s imilar arrangement to the 'tech days' that they run.
I discussed this with Phil Hawkesley a couple of years ago, but he did not hold much hope out due to the thin geographical spread of members of BM Bikes, the organisation that he is associated with.
I expect that I am like many of your subcribers; more enthusiasm than talent with spanners! But sometimes a little guidance goes a long way. I am based in North Staffordshire and am not aware of anyone closer than Phil (in Leicester) that speialises in Airheads.
Congratulations on getting this resource off the ground. It sounds like a very worthwhile endeavour.

Hi from SA, possibly the best motorcycling country.
Thanks for an informative and interesting website.
I'm also old ( >63 ) and run 3 airheads 1 K, total age 130 years, total mileage ±850 000 kms, only 1 bike < 200 000 kms. All bikes built from ground up by myself, all with some sort of modification(s) ( elec and mech ).
We're poor people here in SA ( currently £1.00 = ZAR22.77 I've just received 4 air filters from Motorworks, ouch ! So generally we make out own parts. I'm a retired engineer ( Mech Elec ) so keep CAD drawings of most of the things I've made, if anyone wants, just ask.
