1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    I shitcanned the Lufty fairing couldn't even give it away, and I tried)

    and reduced it to this, all of which is going to be powdercoated black (except tank and fenders) or Garnet Red - I am having a tough time deciding.

    Here is her heart hanging by some threads.


    There is something inherantly attractive about a motor in free space like that.

    I suppose the R60 would look nicer if I worked on it more and rode it less, but damn it, bikes are for riding.

    this was built from a rolling basket case. I have done the paint in a non-stock color with the R90s scheme. Also added stainless pipes and Supertrapp mufflers. Also designed a solo seat and added the colors of the German flag on the edge. It's fun, but sits now that I have a GS. Connecticut old bike plates read EA motorcycle assuming that any old bike in a Harley or Indian..Duh. I changed the lettering to read Early Bavarian.. John Shuck Iron Butt #31

    It is better to be nearly right and understandable
    than to be academically accurate and incomprenhensible.
