1964 R69S BMW locking gasoline cap downside

Good morning of us! I am the proud new proprietor of a 1964 R69S. I simply trailered it house yesterday from an area public sale. It has about 6500 mi’s on it that I imagine are unique. All seems to be manufacturing unit unique on the bike and it is in excellent form.
I have not been a BMW man however I really am now! One among my greatest buddies has all the time ridden them and might by no means say sufficient about them… he is joyful to have pulled me into his league.

I’ve about 1,000,000 questions however I will merely begin with a number of fundamentals at present.

The motor is free turning however I am not going to attempt to begin it till I can view the within of the gas tank and get issues cleaned up, contemporary gas line filters and possibly do a carb rebuild.

First off, the gasoline tank has a “BMW” locking gasoline cap which is screwed up the place the important thing inserts. I can flip the cap by hand however when trying into the “lined” opening, it appears to be like like a spring has come free and as I flip the cap, it needs to come back out of the doorway gap. NOT GOOD! So, would the cap have used the ignition change key to open it, possibly the software field key, or wouldn’t it have been a completely completely different key?

If I am unable to get this unlocked… is there some technique to get the cap off with out damaging something besides possibly the locking internals. Clearly, at the very least to me, I might prefer to get the cap off with as little injury to it as potential in order that possibly I can discover a locksmith to restore it. Authentic is unique…

Who and the place is the very best supply for classic components like fundamentals… carb gasket units, contemporary rubber grommets for headlight wiring and so on.

Due to all prematurely, any and all recommendation is greater than welcome!120230308_163127.jpeg120230308_162952.jpeg
