Very observant of you, why yes, I do stamp all my tools with my nick name.

It's a Cycle Works, http://www.cycleworks.net/ I need to pull the exhaust to get the fairing off... ya I know I don't need to pull the exhaust, BUT, this bike had the lower fairing repaired at one time and they glassed in the lower fairing split.
[Correction; the lower fairing appears to be original and never had the split that would allow exhaust removal. Perhaps the faring split was a later design feature, of perhaps something owners did as a modification. Who knows? Doesn't matter to me now that the entire RT fairing has been removed]

Looks like you're going for the longest shock award. Why not use an 1150 swinging arm and shock? Richie Moore will give you some serious go for the motor http://www.moorespeed.co.uk/bmw-engine

Another Ebay find! A pair of turn signals for $32 shipped to my door. New, turn signals are still just $25 each, after shipping, a new pair cost about $60. So, in the end I get a good-as-new set of used units for half price. I’m happy.

car

Thanks Lornce,

The car is my Lotus Elise S1, Had it for some years now, but limited to how much tinkering you can do to it hence the bike project, the nice thing about the bike is all the work is there to see and not hidden under a load of fiberglass.
Oh and the other good bike point is you dont have to sit in the traffic jams as much, (but you can get a bit cold and wet)

The forks, calipers, alternator case and front cover are different on the post '79 (80?) too.

My Bike that you used in the Photograph is actually an 81. You have it shown as a 79

Looking forward to seeing how the project goes.

I'm just finishing a book by Brock Yates on the Cannonball races, and in '79 Loyal Trusdale and Keith Patchet ran it two up on a R90S. I won't do a spoiler in case any one wants to read up on it.
