aftermarket tire pump?

The tire pump that came with my 74 R60/6 is only for looks now a days...is there an aftermarket pump that will fit on the rear frame? Or is there an outlet to get mine rebuilt?

 

Thanks, Jim

There are several available on eBay. I bought one and it looks great. If you actually intend to inflate tires I'd recommend a CO2 filler or a 12V electric inflator.

Good ideas...

predicated on the idea that the rider carries a patch kit or spare tube, and is practiced at using tire tools.

@wwobbly... and still has the tire tool in their kit... if they still have their kit...

I have been fortunate,  as I still have a bmw co2 bottle and patch kit I have been carrying around for three + decades...I probably need to replace them...

I have found an aftermarket metal pump, in case mine is irreparable...

@81rtbc Spring tension keeps it suspended between the 2 teets on the Left rear frame, accessible by raising the seat.

Have you tried your friendly local BMW dealer? The original pumps are still available, and I've had good experience inflating motorcycle tires with them. No, they won't seat the bead on a tubeless tire, but that's what you carry a credit card for.

I keep mine in the top frame tube. I form a loop in a bit of safety wire, then wrap it around the pump head so it sticks out above it. Makes it a lot easier to pull out of the frame tube when needed.

I forgot to follow up. A gent had an original in good condition that he sent me from the UK, for the same price as an aftermarket pump! All is well in the world, once again 🙂
