Saw this, and thought I would share! 😏 The BMW R11 series was first made in 1929 and produced until 1935, with a total of 75,000 being manufactured.
Q: Can I use a wm3x19" on a /2? I forgot I have a WM#x19 SUN RIM hanging on the shop wall... go figure w/ a bm hub. As you can see SUN RIMS have no spoke Dimples. I use these on my other vintage bikes...

Just finished a restoration of this little drill press vise that was given to me by a friend who's father was the manager of the fabrication/machine shop at the Stanford Linear Accelerator. Much like Scottie, I really enjoy restoring old tools! Just thought I'd share..

Scottie, have you ever installed one of these. Do you need to make an additional bracket to handlebar?
