After more than three years of work, the writing for The Barrington Motor Works BMW R26-27 Motorcycle Restoration and Service Manual has been completed and “test ridden” in our shop.
Recognizing the remarkable shortage of reliable technical information regarding the BMW R26 and R27 machines, we have poured over dozens of original documents and drawings seeking to fill in the gaps in available information. The vast amount of information gleaned in our research has been incorporated into the BMW R26-27 manual.
Note that this manual covers the 1956-60 BMW R26 and 1960-66 BMW R27 machines. Significant portions of the manual are applicable to the earlier BMW R25, R25/2 and R25/3.
The Barrington Motor Works BMW R26-27 Motorcycle Restoration and Service Manual is similar in format to our earlier BMW R51/3-68 and R50-69US manuals and is printed in black and white in an 8.5" x 11" format and bound with a Perfect soft binding and scuff-proof covers with French flaps. Bound within the book are “hot sheets” summarizing engine, clutch, transmission and final drive assembly. Wiring diagrams for both the R26 and R27 as well as exploded diagrams of the final drive assembly and transmission output shaft are included as well. These hot sheets are also laminated on both sides and provided separately for use in the workshop.
As with our earlier manuals, this manual consists of more than 550 pages including many pages of data, more than 600 photographs, and more than 60 original drawings.
The Barrington Motor Works BMW R26-27 Motorcycle Restoration and Service Manual retailsfor $115 plus shipping. The first 100 manuals will be hand numbered and signed.
