I have that deluxe tank too but its just so big, i want the engine to be the focal point as its so original and clean, looks new almost
Is the plan to keep or flog this when it's done... Or have you not decided yet?

No a clue mate, i’m a sucker for all thing shiny so maybe sell?
Problem is its modified to my taste and not generic. I have a BMW R80 that will be getting similar treatment but its a modular bike and easier to mod as you can buy stuff off the shelf that just bolts on, the loom even splits! How forward thinking of ze Germans.

The old boxers are the best and the only ones I'd give garage space.

It's on the way. Just shy of £10k subject to Brexit.

Beautiful! Looks like something Ariel might have had a hand in designing.

No news on the exhaust welder but i now have two sets that need making so it could be surely worth it for someone.

My garage is being sorted out at the moment so more updates soon, need organised space.
