In Search of a Bike

Bob Henig on a vintage motorcycle

Bob sitting on old BMW twin engine.

Yes, that’s really Bob sitting on a very unique old BMW twin, a bike Bob hopes someone out there will be able to assist him in finding. That photo of Bob was back in the days before Bob’s BMW, when it was called Bob’s Used Parts.  And judging by the t-shirt he’s wearing it’s even before he moved the operation to Jessup so this is likely circa 1983. Bob was attending an event in New Hampshire called Mayday Madness hosted by the Vintage BMW Owners Club (VBMWO) which was a 2 day Vintage BMW bike gathering, campout and flea market. This was well before the internet.
 
While Bob attended this event many times over the years both selling and acquiring items or just as an enthusiast he only saw this machine show up one time and the owner would not share any contact information. Bob does recall handing over a business card to that nice man who agreed to the photo you see here. Bob has told the staff here about this unique bike many times and he’d still love to acquire it to share in the Vintage Museum at Bob’s BMW so if you know who owns it, where it might be garaged or in some manner can get him information that leads to the acquisition we know there would be a generous finder’s fee involved. Email bob@bobsbmw.com if you have any information to share.

Showcase Your Motorcycle At The 2014 BMW MOA Rally

campgrounds2After 30 plus years of participating as a vendor at the MOA International Rally,Bob’s BMW knows it is necessary to annually change up your display to keep it new and fresh so the rally continues to be fun and exciting for all those attending! So for Bob’s 2014 MOA rally display we’ve decided we want to include as many of our customers and their bikes as we can! If you are planning to attend this year’s rally July 24-27, “Rolling By The River” in St. Paul, Minnesota, and your bike was modified, customized, refurbished, or restored (partly or completely) at Bob’s or it was ‘thanks’ to Bob’s great inventory of parts and accessories that your bike is what it is today please contact us as soon as possible to join in on the fun we are planning.

The plan is to rotate the display of bikes at Bob’s booth multiple times each day so that we are not holding any one bike hostage too long—we want you to enjoy the rally to its fullest and we know that includes having your bike available to go out and enjoy some great riding! If you would like to feel like a celebrity at the rally, simply provide hanna.creekmore@bobsbmw.com with 2 good pictures of your bike (right and left), details of the work Bob’s has helped you with, your contact information including full name, phone number, email, and address, along with a short blurb on why your bike should be showcased in our display at this year’s MOA rally!
