    Got everything back together, including the hella style bar-end lights. The grips are just temporary from wal-mart because I didn't want to cut holes in the original BMW ones. Anybody have suggestions on a nice comfortable grip?

    Next up is a 3904 acewell, custom LED indicators, RFID ignition, and going to be building my own Lithium Ion battery pack. Stay tuned :D

    Hey Riverdale, I'm doing the same thing on the same bike. Bought a 1983 R100RT, first airhead, and am tearing it down. It was in a wreck, so the fairing was cracked, windshield cracked. Unless somebody wants it, I'm leaving it in the trash bin. Anyway, couple of questions:
    1. Was your original headlight mount welded to the frame? I thought I saw some grind marks on the front of your frame...
    2. What headlight bucket did you go with, and are your stuffing that circuit board back in it, or doing away with it? It's a tangled mess in there...
