We managed a round trip of around 1800 km. Hope the hand is ok, not sure about the BMW gloves. Try large welders...

Re: What should I do with a scrap bike?

What is scrap today is a rare collection piece tomorrow !!
There are a few bikes I wished I hadn't scrapped in the 60's and 70's :o
Almost everything has a value to someone.
Find a home for it, could make a nice winter renovation project for someone.
