New Member Introduction
Hi, I’m Caleb Frederick in Huntsville, AL. I was introduced to Airheads when I was young and my Dad bought a new 1980 R100RT Red Smoke. He later gave that bike to me and I’ve recently completed its restoration after it sat for over 20 years (see photo). I bought my first Airhead in 2000… a 1973 75/5 LWB. Since then, I’ve owned other BMWs including Airheads (and a well-known Italian brand).
Over the years, I’ve done most mechanical and electrical work on my bikes and have a well-stocked garage including lift to make this possible. For ‘specialty’ work, I am fortunate to be semi-local to Rick Jones of Motorrad Elektrik.
If you’re in or passing through the Huntsville area and you’re interested in a coffee, BT, or need assistance, feel free to reach out.
Hello, and WELCOME from the bottom of Texas. Beautiful RT! Very cool that it was your Dad’s. I’ve never met Rick, but I’ve had some good phone time with him. Great that he is in your vicinity. Certainly one of the “good guys”. Hope you find your membership to be enjoyable and useful. Lots of good knowledge out there!
Welcome from NE Georgia !
Great looking RT you have there.

I'm Peter, living in Hillsdale, NY in beautiful Columbia County. Been here about 2 1/2 years after retiring from teaching elementary school in Westchester County (Ossining to be specific) for almost 30 years.
I have a 1984 R80ST I bought a couple of months after moving to the country, previous bike was almost 30 years prior, a 1972 R75/5 which I owned for a couple of years.
I attended Greg's tech day down in New Fairfield, CT and had a great time looking at all the old bikes and watching folks work on them.
Here's a picture of my ST...

Welcome to the Airheads! We've got great riding here in NW Arkansas. If you can make this way, I'll stake you to lunch and show you some of the good roads. I'm in the Dairectory.
