    Just purchased a 1978 BMW R100S in need of a little TLC. Runs good, needs cosmetics. The stock paint job was a nice Red Smoke Metallic/ Red Metallic 2 tone. Anyone know of a good paint shop that can re-create the original paint job. I`d like to restore to original if possible.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    MAX BMW Motorcycles Heritage Service Center but I'm sure you can find a custom, low rider or chopper paint shop near you.

    +1 on Holt. They have been painting BMWs longer than most people on this site have been riding them.

    The Wark Shop is where I'd take mine.
