+1 kudos to Scotty B for a beautiful ride. The old school European fairings of that general style are timeless in their good looks. And the rest of the bike is first rate, too.

Thanks. It's a Scherb Knoscher fairing I trimmed down along the sides along with a new mounting, both at the headlight mount and the side braces which are one off's too. It also has a triangulated swingarm and and extra motor mount that goes throught the airbox and bolts to the back of the trannie. No filter. It rides very straight unlike a lot of beemers when you power on. And of course Krauser heads. The bike was built twenty years ago. here's a close up.

Ahhhhh! I knew something was done to the fairing. Very nice treatment of an old school look. It looks so clean and sleek. I really like what you've done.

Cheers

Really? You know what an untrimmed Scherb and Knoscher fairing looks like?!?



Wow, you must be a real vintage guru. Do you offer judging services at rallies?



That IS a lovely bike. I had no idea about the fairing, assumed it was an early Pichler...

fwiw,

Ahhhh Lornce you stalk me everywhere. As a matter of fact I do know what a Scherb and Knoscher looks like. Been spending a lot of time trying to figure out what my next ride should be and I blame this thread for what ever $$$ it's gonna cost me. Don't worry mate I'll be looking for advice before I pull the trigger. Not from you, of course, but the non posers types.

Cheers

Fin

To be honest that dam PD of yours started the whole thing.

Here a couple of good links about the Knoscher. The fairings are no longer made. Its a sport model with the sides shaved down as you can see. I've got the seat too but like the BMW one better. regards.

Very cool. Looks like a T model.
Be sure to post that in the GS appreciation thread.

Hey, is that the one you rebuilt in another thread? If so, can you post the link to that thread? I was watching the progress for awhile, but either the thread stopped or I stopped receiving it.

Thanks.
