Preserving our heritage By Lee DeYoung #31683


THE VINTAGE DISPLAY AT THE 2017 Crossroads of The West was a great time and the heat couldn’t keep the people away. Dedicated to the preservation, res-


toration and enjoyment of BMW motorcycles from the past, the Vin- tage Display included motorcycles from 1928 through 1975, along with a 1956 BMW Isetta car. Jack Wells brought three, very nice


pre-war singles including a 1931 R 2, 1934 R 4, and 1936 R 3. He also brought his beautifully restored 1938 R 61 with sidecar labeled “Deutsche Reichspost.” Jack Wells on his 1938 R 61 and I on my 1928 R 52 made a point


of riding around the rally grounds once every hour for the enjoyment of the rally goers who hadn’t yet seen a pre-war motor- cycle in operation. More than 60 enthusiasts attended Fri-


day morning’s seminar “Restoration and Preservation of Vintage BMWs.” Jack Wells gave an informative talk on pre- and post- war singles and the history of his 1938 R 61 German post office sidecar. We talked about paint and different types of insur- ance, followed up with a lively discussion on vintage starter bikes, restoration versus preservation, where to find parts and more. Judging of the vintage bikes took place


Saturday morning. We sincerely thank judges Jim Benge, Rick Huemmerich, Jerry


Sullivan and Jack Wells for their time, efforts, and expertise. The Vintage awards ceremony took place


at the display on Saturday afternoon. The Jim Falk Memorial Award given for con- tinuously supporting the vintage display over many years honored Dave Kaechale for his tireless dedication and by sharing his experiences and knowledge. This year he brought a true survivor, an unrestored and mostly unmolested 1938 R 17. The Vern Mitchell Award is given to


those who personally do most, if not all of their work and honored Peter Groshnbach for his 1956 BMW Isetta car. His craftsman- ship and attention to detail shined through. The car runs on a BMW 300cc single and
