    That's looking good Chris :thumb


    Always liked a vehicle that has a story behind where all the various parts came from.

    Looking forward to your disc brake update, I might be tempted to do something along the same lines myself [​IMG]

    love the "smoothie" hack wheel, looks like a spindle mount vw wheel for a manx or sandcar. really looks great with the skirted fender.

    does it rise at the front on braking? surprised you ddn't make a floating caliper mount. I like your machine, looks like an old outfit that's been in use for years. And you get to pick out all the best years of BMW parts, too. Better than a stock restoration.

    The funny things is I don't know. It might lift, but I've been riding these old things for so long I don't notice it.
    The conversion was done in the 80's and it's defiantly a bits-o-bike.
    40mm carburetors on a R90 motor
    Crank fired ignition from some VW parts
    /6 rear drive conversion
    /5 headlight bucket
    .....and soon to change some more.
