Phil Rose latest Knöchlein winner


IT SEEMED ONLY A MATTER OF TIME


before Phil Rose #40357 would receive the Professor Gerhard Knöchlein BMW Clas- sic Award. The award presented by the BMW Clubs


International Council honors club mem- bers who have been particularly instru- mental in the promotion and perpetuation of the BMW marque. Only members of a recognized BMW club who have kept their historic BMW vehicles in perfect condition and made them accessible to the public are eligible. Based on those prerequisites, Rose’s


selection seemed academic. Rose rode into the world of BMW nearly 30 years ago with the purchase of a brand new 1987 K 75 S, replaced the next season with an ’87 K 100 S Motorsport Edition, which was soon fol- lowed by an ’86 K 75 C and an ’83 R 100 S. Phil’s early endeavors into restoring BMWs began with a cache of Slash 2-era twins, followed by a long line of BMWs restored with much help from Darrell Mes- serle, former owner of Grass Roots BMW


in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Phil’s long list of restorations include a


1968 R 50/2 displayed at the Moodus National, a 1976 Daytona Orange R 90 S ridden to and displayed at the Durango National and featured prominently on the cover of Old Bike Journal, a 1959 R 26 cur- rently displayed in his living room, a 1981 R 80 G/S, and a 1969 R 60/2 in Granada Red, which were among the first winners at the annual Quail Gathering. Additional restorations also include sev-


eral 1982 R 65 LSs, one of which was given away as the Grand Prize at the BMW MOA Rally in Rhinebeck, a 1981 R 100 CS, several 1982 Krauser MKM 1000s, a 1972 R 75/5 Toaster in Monza Blue, a 1993 K1 in Silk Blue and a 1987 R 80 ridden to the BMW MOA Rally in St. Paul, Minnesota, two years ago. Phil lives in Taunton, Massachusetts, and


uses the call sign name of Phactory Phil because all of his machines have to either be at or better than the factory standard at the time of production. Phil has hosted


numerous events at his house, providing the opportunity for enthusiasts to see and enjoy all of his fine machines. Many of the motorcycles that Phil has restored have been sourced and found even before they became the machines to have, namely the R 80 G/S and R 26. The R 80 G/S was the very first G/S delivered to ABT BMW in Chicago and was built in November of 1980. The R 26 was initially advertised as a 1955 R 25/3, but as soon as Phil saw it, he knew exactly what it was. This bike was originally sold at Phil's local dealer, Dun- bar Eurosports, and even came with the original bill of sale. BMW Mobile Tradition verified that the bike was actually built in 1959, the same year Phil was born. Phil joins a long and prestigious list of


U.S. Knöchlein Award recipients which includes Darryl Richman, Jeff Dean, Bob Lonergan, Lothar Schuttler, Jack Wells, Paul Glaves, Doug Morrison, John Lacko, David Percival, William J. Young, James M. Smith and Peter Nettesheim.
