BMW R65LS Restoration

To Do

Now, once a wheel is off, the bike is immobile.  Before than I can move the bike around in the garage or take it outside if neccessary. May be best to do everything possible with wheels on first.

Location

The garage is not very big and pretty full.  It is also under the house and any smells go straight up into the bedroom above it. Finding storage for all of the motorcycle bits will not be easy.  We have a "summerhouse" - a wooden shed in need of repair (a future task). It's home today for lots of stuff to dump and sell on Gumtree.  It's probably the best place for painting and maybe plating (is plating smelly?)
