This is Joe Groeger in 1999 scoping out the condition of the large bearing from the rear-end of a 1966 BMW R69S. It’s an example of the type of things that used to happen on Saturday mornings at Joe’s shop – Groeger Special Tooling. (He found indications of pitting on the race – the bearing was replaced).

Joe passed away in February, a few weeks before his 100th birthday. Scott Williams put together a nice tribute on his blog, weissunblau.
