Solid axles get a bad rap.
For the 700 folks out there:
A friend and I have located 2 (count 'em, two) 700 LSs in goodnews/bad news condition.
First question: VINs are as follows: 851341 and 833796. What year(s) would they be?
The engines and transaxles are GONE. Anybody know of any?
How about windshields?
For once I am at a loss for BMW info. What say ye?
Are you sure those are the entire VINs? You can plug the VIN into http://www.realoem.com/ to find out more about the cars but it requires seven digits - six doesn't work.
I have realoem and tried it already. ID'd as a Euro E21 315... Unless I'm blind that's all the digits on the plate.
VIN's were funny in the late 50's and early 60's. I am not surprised they don't work on realOEM
The motors were bored and stroked BMW R67 motorcycle engines.
I am very jealous. I have been looking for a 700 for 20 odd years
Before you get too deep I'd make sure you can source the windshields - a real killer for classic cars.

I'll bet they are...but glass in one is intact. The second car may well turn into a parts car anyway.

I think we need some pictures, definitely some of the racecar.
Please tell me the fuel filler is on the leading edge of the hood. I love that!

You need to host them on a website like photobucket or flickr.

VIN of BMW 700 can be looked up here: http://www.bmw700.net/index.php?lng_id=en&mnu_id=5&sub_id=28&cnt_pag=1
I have some parts, engines, doors etc. but am located in The Netherlands so freight costs wil be high...
@bettyboop58: could you post some pictures of your 700 with 1150rs engine?

That thing is chain drive?!
That has got to be one of the coolest old cars I've seen.
Hi everyone I am now progressing along much faster with my bmw 700 with rs1150 engine hoping to have it ready for a historic race in october so it has to get finished and tested, here are a few more photos so far .[URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130925_120314.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130925_115046.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130925_115018.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130925_114201.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130925_114029.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130925_113951.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130925_113916.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130925_113902.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130913_120153.jpg.html][/URL] [URL=http://s1123.photobucket.com/user/bettyboob58/media/20130913_120138.jpg.html][/URL]
This needs it's own build thread.....
Hi roadracedart, dont know how to move this post
But stay away from any serious NSU 1000s!
In reply to bettyboob58:
Well, I dont think hes meaning that you need to move the thread, he means start a thread int he builds section, and post some more detailed info. Like some play by play action showing progress of the project. The shots you posted on the 30th with a primered body, missing fenders, and a small carbed bike motor are a far cry fromthe last shots, and I for one (Im sure I speak for most of us) would love to see some of the nuts and bolts steps that got you there. This is a pretty cool project on a platform that I never knew existed.
Okay guys I will start a thread and post the build as I get a bit of time in between work and all,these are the pics of when i got the car ,it had fibreglass doors and frontend but to conform to classic car racing i had to change to all metal body and install a rollcage (enjoy)

Awesome car and work!!!!
So, I'm not a big motorcycle guy, but what's bespoke to the car and what is from a stock motorcycle, regarding the drivetrain? Also, how does the power get down to the axle flanges? (I'm probably not seeing it in the photos...)
***Edit: looking again, it'll probably have a sprocket on the driver's side flange, right? No differential?
