Restoration and repair of a classic car or motorbike requires a lot of work and a good deal of focus by those involved. At White’s Bodyworks, we have a long track record of delivering high-quality renovations for a variety of vehicles, many of them vintage vehicles.

This BMW R50 needed a fair amount of work undertaking when the owner contacted us. We’re usually the first port of call in the Home Counties and West Sussex mainly because we have so much experience in classic cars. If there’s a motorbike that epitomises the kind of work we do at White’s it’s this BMW R50 that came to us recently.

When restoring a bike to its former glory, there’s a lot of work that goes into getting it just right. We always work closely with the owner to make sure their expectations are met and we take all the steps we can to deliver on time and within budget.

More About the BMW R50

This is one of our favourite classic motorbikes and we were glad to see it coming onto our forecourt. This classic German motorcycle may not have the power of today’s mean machines but it certainly looks the part.

Produced between 1955 and 1969 it was one of the most popular bikes of its era and had a top speed of 87mph. Where modern motorbikes might lose value as time goes on, it seems the R50 has stood the test of time and it’s certainly a favourite amongst classic bike enthusiasts.

How We Renovated This BMW R50

When any vintage vehicle comes to us, the first thing we do is work with the owner to find out what their expectations are and how we can help deliver on them. At White’s Bodyworks, we have all the facilities that you would hope to find in a quality, modern garage that has a track record of delivering classic car and motorbike restoration.

There was a lot of work to do with this particular restoration as the photos below show. Strengthening and restoring the frame and repairing damage spots before doing a final spray were just some of the processes that allowed us to bring this amazing bike back to life for its owner.

If you own a classic motorbike and are looking for a garage to help handle the restoration or any repairs, contact the experienced team at White’s Bodyworks on 01273 933633.
