August 2011 – Troy and Denise Russell’s 1946 BMW Model R71

The bike is registered as a 1946 BWM Model R71, however the research that I have done suggests that it is a Chang Jiang 750 (CJ750) Model M1M. The CJ750 is the Chinese clone of the Russian M72, who itself is the clone of the BMW. This is a replica model which was built around 1986 adding modern day conveniences.

After the Russians copied the R71 and used it successfully during World War II, they sold copies of M72’s to the Chinese during the fifties.

Then, in 1957, the Chinese started their own M72 production under the name of Chang Jiang 750. The early production was using a lot of Russian M72 parts such as fenders, frames, wheels, ignition keys, switches, etc. Even some complete Russian M72’s were recalled Chang Jiang 750’s. Some had the Russian engine changed to a Chinese made one.

Basic specs

-         Engine is a 746cc 4 stroke horizontally apposed with kick start & electric start (one of the conveniences added after 1986). 4 speed transmission with a drive shaft and 1 reverse gear (another modern convenience) which give a top speed of about 62 mph and 30 mpg. Has a 12 volt electrical system, 770 pounds dry weight and has a max payload of 3 adults (?) plus about 220 pounds.

If anyone is interested in reading further information, I have a small binder with literature and diagrams that takes about 20 or so minutes. Just let me know.

June 2011 – Dave & Carol Apgar’s  2006 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic

We purchased this bike when Dave retired from the Carlisle School District in 2006.    It is the Firefighter Edition for 2006.   We have enjoyed many rides to the beach, the mountains and many day trips around the area.  It didn’t require too many changes because it was pretty much customized at purchase with the full size detachable Lexan windshield, oversize leather studded saddlebags, studded seat,  running lights,  chromed oil tank and oil lines, chrome light fender accents, laced wheels.  The power train is a five speed with a 1450 cc fuel injected engine.  To get a little more performance we added the Vance and Hines Long Shot Pipes with hidden crossover, high flow air filter/intake system and a V & H Fuel pack mapping unit to match the adjustments.  Most recently we started using a HD synthetic blend lubricant and noticed increased performance, gallons per mile and cooling.  For a big bike it handles remarkable well and floor boards for the driver and passenger make for an easy ride.  I had always said that I would never own a bike with a windshield, now I wouldn’t be without one.  Be safe out there and watch out for the other guy.

May 2011 – Brian & Heather Metzger’s 2005 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 XL Custom

We purchased this bike in June of 2010 as a second owner, since then we have enjoyed the time together on it with many great friends. The following changes and additions have been made: Stage 1 Kit, Screaming Eagle II pipes, K&N Air Filter, Harley Detachable Windshield, Saddleman Detachable Bags, Mustang Solo Seat with matching passenger pillion, Harley Detachable Sizzy Bar.  Moved front turn signals to the forks, moved rears to the lay down licenses plate bar, both front and rear have smoked lens and visors, Changed front wheel to a 19” with a one of a kind Chrome Profile Laced Wheel. Rear wheel is a factory Profile Laced Wheel, Progressive Fork Springs, Progressive 412 Rear shocks, Kurakun Highway bar, Kurakun Iso pegs, installed purple LEDS.  Mobil 1 20/50 V-Twin Oil and Mobil 1 75/90 in the primary/transmission.  Heather was a dead set against motorcycles, so she thought that by getting her mother to use some “disowning” tactics on me would work. As you can see, it didn’t work. She left us with one saying “Live for Today, Tomorrow May Not Be Here”, so every time we are on the bike we ride in memory of – Naomi Jane Rice RIP 12/24/2010. Ride Safe!
April 2011 – Mike & KellyAnn Rugh’s 1997 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic

I purchased the bike in October 2008 from the widow of MSG Scott R. Ball.

Scott was a motorcycle patrolman at Pennsylvania State Police Carlisle station who also served with the 28th Infantry Division of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.

Scott died on August 27th, 2007 from wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit during combat operations in Jalalabad, Afghanistan.

Scott brought his bike to work one day and sparked enough of an interest that I went out and bought a Ural Tourist Sidecar motorcycle so my daughter could share my hobby with me. After Scott died serving his country I purchased his bike and lettered the rear of the bike in tribute to him. Mike, Kelly Ann and Michaela enjoy taking rides together on nice days.
