if they come up with a Cafe Tourer class I'm ready -
looks good to me
Nice parts on that bike.
BMW did create the "cafe tourer" (better known as sport touring) class.
What kind of engraving do you do? I do etched copper and bronze filled with enamel. I'd love to get a cnc machine to do real engraving with.
Stunning. Is that fairing OEM?
Looks like a Rapid Transit.
Are those Krauser 4-valve heads?
Yep. The bike is stunning. Well done!
SJ BMW Kool covers on standard heads.
No CNC - all hand engraving
Fairing Vesco Rapid Transit - Google Don Vesco - great story & a piece of our motorcycle history -
BING BING We have a winner!
stock heads with CC custom valve covers
thanks guys - fun bike - everything has been rebuilt - everything - ride any where - I like the Cafe look but like a little more upright riding position - not getting old - already there - The bike draws a crowd in person - tom
As they say in New England...." Wicked Nice ". Cool bullet holes, too.
Bullet holes are old school so I like that but they also can hide small nicks or dings
Not quite. It is a "Rabid Transit", as in "I run this bike like a RABID dog runs from the dog catcher".
The bike has risers but they had a bad case of the ugly - so I scratched up the cover plate to add a little bling - tom
and the bar clamps to tidy things up a little
Very, very cool.
I've often thought a fully-engraved R100 tank would be awfully slick. Is that possible given the thickness of the steel?
One of the Harley guy's had one done last year - but the tank had to be custom cast nice & thick & then beautiful deep relief engraving - The owner had to have very deep pockets but it was really a one of a kind - Of coarse the engine & other things had to be engraved to match - tom
