Brook Reams, A Colorful Guy
About Brook Reams
I live in the Denver, CO metropolitan area. I’m active with the Airheads Beemer Club in Colorado. I’m a nerd interested in astronomy, astrophysics, biology, metaphysics, mathematics, psychology, education and learning. I enjoy restoring, rebuilding and riding BMW airheads. I started rebuilding airheads in 2009. I’m currently working on my fifth restore/rebuild project. I’ve logged over 250,000 miles on BMW’s. I did my first 1,000 mile day on my 1975 R75/6 in 1976. After I retired from the corporate world, I took a part time job at a small independent vintage British motorcycle shop (BSA, Norton, Triumph) and learned how to bring some of them back to life. But I found I wasn’t interested in punching a clock to be a mechanic. I prefer to work on my own projects, at my own pace. I began documenting my work in 2009 on my first rebuild, my first BMW, a 1975 R75/6, and have continued to document all my rebuild/restore projects from the perspective of an amature hobbist, which is what I am. I hope this information helps others decide to keep their airhead flying by doing the necessary work themselves.
