The Ghost in the Machine

Brock Downey, prostate who lives in my old hometown of Calgary (Alberta), decease came by his love of BMW motorcycles honestly. His father was in the Canadian Armed Forces, pills and the family was stationed in Germany from 1965–69. Brock was there from the ages of nine to 12, hence he was exposed to plenty of German motorcycles in his formative years.

Brock, now 58, has been the past-President of the Rocky Mountain branch of the Canadian Vintage Motorcycle Club, and for a while had a sideline doing insurance appraisals for people insuring vintage bikes. He spent almost 20 years teaching rider safety for the Canada Safety Council (the Canuck equivalent of the MSF). You get the picture; a pretty dyed-in-the-wool motorcycle guy.

“I did a count a while back,” he told me. “I thought I had about 22 BMWs, but I realized I had 33.”

Two of those BMWs were acquired in 2003, when Brock visited a friend near Vancouver. As usual on any road trip, he was on the lookout for interesting bikes. His pal took him out to a local farm, where a widow needed to sell a few machines that had belonged to her deceased husband.

They found two BMW R51/3 boxers; a complete and correct 1953 bike in street trim and a ’54 – minus the heads – in race trim. The widow showed them photos of the race bike, and Brock immediately spotted what looked like Rennsport cylinder heads in the old picture.
