Real bike or painting.

This does not seem real to me. Can someone see if this is real or just an airbrush job?

Looks real enough to me. Everything is so fresh it looks like it may have been bead blasted/sand blasted.

Detail on the brake calipers and frame tabs (even the seat lock tab and tank mount rubbers are correct) is too good a for a plastic model.

The frame and cylinders do not seem right for a 1974 model....Look at the thing sticking out behind the frok legs. The tank mounts? The valve covers?

That might be the R90S scale model that BMW sells, stripped down to basics. It looks a little plasticky.

That's a picture of the Tamiya 1/8 scale R90S kit. Big model, very nice detail.
