Woah!

I wanna know about the tail-light, the front number plate, and the BMW logo with the carbon fiber.

The front number plate has really a number of functions. The idea came from the racing bikes with the oval number plate on the front. This actually started out being an oval shape as well, then trimmed it until it looked right. Obviously the 75 signifies the model, but the other reason is to make the stock instrument cluster work, the shape of the number plate flows with the new headlight... I could go on... it's polished aluminum to suit the bike.

The carbon fiber badges are for hubcaps. They actually came in two pieces and I just didn't use the back part that clips into the wheel. Since the whole bike is black and aluminum, I didn't want the blue in the badge.

The tail light is an 8" strip of LED which functions as running light, tail light and signal lights (on either side) in one. The entire piece lights up as running light, the center section is the brake and either side of the brake light sections are the signal lights. It's actually quite bright, but hard to take a picture of.

Well done. I'm a huge fan of the K75, IMO it's the best motor BMW made and the smoothest of any bike I've ever been on. Super job!

I love everything about it, except a missing front fender.

Sorry, bikes just look unfinished or too "hipster" to me, when they don't put the front fender on.
