Looking good in white mate, definately go with the M-sport colours,
I'm planning to for superbeemer, can think of paint now it's test ridden!!!


Where did you get the brace bars from?
Apparently with the BMW frame design they can flex in the top tube, it's booked for a track day in feb, and dyno next week, so ill see then but just incase I might brace the frame.

Happy new year too!

Hi all, I've been away for a while. Trying to work on the airhead as much as I can whilst moving house has been a little tough but it's well on track!

Sadly my old huge double garage was all packed up but not until I did a few last things...



Tried out a "German" theme stripe but didn't really like it to much so lost it.



All packed up and closed for business!!! :(



All set up and ready to go! This is my daily bike as well. 2008 BMW g650 xmoto.



Now to make a mess. Everything was in packed and work has started again.







Motor Works UK deep sump kit fitted.





Ducati 900ss screen modified and fitted.



And the rest....





This week I sent the body work and frame away to get painted so I hope to have some major updates shortly.

love it

1) Where'd you get that fairing and what did it take to mount it?! Sorry if I missed it the first time I read through. Happy to go back to the right page.

EDIT: Flat Racer, page 8.

2) I tried to order Spiegler brake lines but their website is a mess. I then tried to order this Galfer kit, which was $50 cheaper and free shipping but out of stock… Any other suggestions?

Spot on with the fairing. The brake parts, lines, caliper kit, pads were all puchased from Motor Works UK. Spent some time with them over the phone when i got them to confirm everything 100% and they were great to deal with.

Small amount if work has taken place. Parts are still off for paint. I got the second hand set of pistons so them along with the heads and barrels have been sent to the machine shop for service.

Pistons, new ring set and new gudgeon pin clips.



Ash trays out of the old ones.



Finally getting around to fixing the rear seal once and for all after an adv member picked up that I fitted it wrong. New oil pump seal, guide ring seal and rear main will be fitted. And yes, the crank is blocked!

Welcome to the forum mate and thanks for the kind words. Be sure to buy yourself a good workshop manual to fall back on incase you get stuck, plenty of seriously knowledgable people on here also. 👍

Peace, Pop.

Will do. I've got my Haynes manual ordered, which should make some fascinating bedtime reading! And so pleased I found this forum. I strangely can't wait to start posting incredibly stupid newbie questions.

Best of luck with the upcoming work!

While the heads, barrels and pistons have been at the machine shop, everything has been painted up and the careful process of putting everything back together has started.









Test fit of the cowl and tank.

Nice!

Is that reg paint or PC on frame?

Did you paint the Tarozzi sets of did you get them like that? They look better than typical set, not stamped steel. Where'd you source?

(apologies if these already answered in thread)
