Newbie to Vintage BMW

I just got my first vintage bmw- 1963 r50/2. Completely rebuilt from a reputable guy. I'm having trouble with the carbs.  Will there be people at the event who can help me and that I can ask a lot of questions? Again, this is all new to me. Never been to the event before so I do not know what to expect. 


My other option is to take it to a local mechanic here in Charlotte.

Re: Newbie to Vintage BMW

The Airheads is a Charter Club of hundreds of members. They will be set up at the rally and will be very noticelable.

And don't forget John Landstrom and the Vitage Tent/ Experts, to say the least.

If they can't help you, no one can. I would look them up.
