In this section we will discuss tools and items in the tool kits for the BMW R12. First we will talk about the BMW R12 tube repair tin box, Pneumatik-Reparaturkasten. These little tin boxes are very hard to locate now of days. Being made from a small thin material most of them have not made it 82 years. In the manual BMW R12 D605/3 is a very good photo of this box next to the tool kit. Below is this photo
From the research that I have found this tin box was made in a gold anodized color and a white. I have original examples of each color. The size of the box is 103mm X 78 X 45. Inside the kits was tube patches, a small scuffing tool to repair inner tubes. Below is a original box in the gold color. Take a look to Caberg Helmets on Motocentral.co.uk.
