It's the new & improved F100GS!
Not mine; done by the bloke who built my R100GS. It has been run in a bike and goes like a shower.....
I almost didn't watch it, but decided to after someones comment on it.
You don't usually get much perspective on hills, but after seeing the signs and some quick math, GREAT ROAD TO RIDE, just make damn sure you stay awake!
That 7 or 8% grade where you could see the road in the top of the frame, WOW! Good job on the camera.
Who ever did the soldering on that copper tube should be ashamed of themselves..
function over form.
Quite so, it would remove your knackers quicker than a Triumph tank rack!
Anyone who did that to a BMW deserves their knackers removed.... as slowly as possible.
I like an industrial look in bikes, rat bikes and such. We definitely don't see it enough with BMWs.
It looks like the copper pipe is the breather. Nicely done. I also like the plug wire coming from the engine block. No idea how this was done? Wouldn't there by oil from there?
I like an industrial look as well, but note the neat row of holes below the starter cover vs. the hole for the poorly soldered breather pipe. Looks like he used a clawhammer to make that one.
Re the plug leads, that hole is still part of the starter cavity. It goes deeper than you think.
Is there a shot of the whole bike anywhere ? I want to find something redeeming before I chime in on the aesthetics of this form follows function discussion.
Anyone know what's the egg-shaped thing on the side of the starter cover? Normally I'd hate this thing, but for some reason, I kinda like it.
19 kms from Mt. Gambier, Princes Hwy, Vic/SA border.
One of the characters on Rowan and Martin's laugh in had a catch-phrase that immediately springs to mind ... :huh
Now that rider has even bigger boots than my size 14s to ride that thing and use that funkcool brake lever.
Not only would that thing remove your knackers, it would supply you with a new arsehole. The frame looks to be a nimbus copy.
OK, jokes aside, while this bike is not most people's cup of tea, it certainly shows some very interesting and creative metal work. Does anyone know how I can find the owner to ask him if he wants to have his bike featured in the BMW RA club magazine, On The Level?
I'm with you, not my cup of tea, but very interesting!
