I suspect/hope the exhaust just looks awkward from this angle, and looks much better in other views. The exhaust on my bike looks great (to me) but looking from the front on the bikes left side, the pipes don't look right at all :huh
It's all about maximum bling at minimum cost.......they say that they rebuild the engines properly, but im sure that they just make sure it runs long enough to clear whatever Gtee they give it.
What I really hate about the look is the huge air gap behind the engine, exposing the spindly nature of both the mainframe and subframes. If I was going to get someone to build a cafe racer racer in the UK, I would go to one of the established BMW engineers, I saw one of Steve Scrimegers cafe racers at his workshop, it looked really good and judging by the condition of the tyres worked well on the track.
A few upgrades, shocks, springs, bars, bar end signals, lights...and a little streamlining...
Nice. That has combat touring written all over it.
Will an airhead power two big ole fog lamps like that? I've been wanting to mount ONE on mine, but worried it would be too big of a current draw.
So far so good...We'll see if it keeps up...New battery, no other draw, fingers crossed... : )
See? Now that makes sense. If you're not going to have rear turn signals, make the front ones twice (or more) as big.
One that got away
The seats and sub frames are sold under the Von zetti brand on uk eBay. Von zetti are based on the outskirts of the town kevils work from. No idea if there's a link but it seems very likely.
Looks like a peach! Very clean bike there
DAMN NICE AIRHEADS! Love all of them!
Larry Stonestreet (Stoner's Beemer Stash) had a tech day on Saturday in Murrieta, CA
here's a few pics from the link:)
never thought id be back to airheads but here I am. 79 R100RS.
I always loved that '79 paint scheme. They nailed it with that one.
Damn, that makes me miss home. Welcome back to airheads.
VonZetti do have a website that says they post worldwide http://vonzeti.com/
thanks. I saw that afterwards when someone pointed out those guys don't make the seats themselves. Those vonzeti seats look very nice but I don't like the way their seat frames have a thin fragile look to them. However it looks like you can adapt the seats to a modified BMW subframe like the british shop did. I spoke with Edgar who owns Flatracer yesterday and he tells me that he is about to put out a new smaller airhead solo seat as well. Its cool to see airheads getting all this new attention on the custom scene.
Which one to keep?
