R100 W reg to be restored...Anyone???

Does anyone know who can restore a BMW R100 w reg? It is in Ireland at the moment but can be transported pretty much anywhere in the UK and Ireland.
The person who ownes the bike is very attached to it and would like the quality of work to be of a high standard.
I would appreciate any help here.

BMW R100 restoration

Hi There are a few BMW airhead specialists around. If money is no object then Difazio s in Frome Somerset are about as good as any. For the paintwork if the bike has smoke paintwork then Dream machine are about the only people who can really achieve the correct finish. Hope this helps.

There is a fella in dublin who restores old boxers. He just fitted a new clutch plate and crankshaft seal for €100 in my 100GS. He doesn't advertise or anything he just does it out of the love of old boxers so he might be worth trying.
