No - I didn't need it.  Yes - I love the styling.  No - I don't know how I will fit it in the garage yet.

The handle bars are a modification? I seem to remember a more upright riding position. Looks classic, love it.

Yes - custom bars, custom seat, custom tank.  Exhaust has been bobbed.  Custom headlight.  Front and rear fenders have been cut down.  Original "Snowflake" wheels have been powder coated.   Original instrument binnacle has been removed, and a Motogadget Tiny has been installed instead.

 

Ignition was moved from the normal spot on the headlight to the lock for the seat lock down.

 

All I will probably do it it is do some exhaust wrap on the headers, and clean up and spray the exhaust ends flat black.  That's it.

 

My shippers got there before the check did this morning.  Owner is unhappy with me, but gave the bike to the shipper, and is going to hold the title until the check arrives.  He's also asked the shipper to not release it until he gets his money.  Should work out OK - shipper won't be here until later in the week.

 

I will add more pics when it gets here.

That is a sweet Café style BMW. don't see that too often.

actually, the cappuccino crowd is hacking up bmw's left and right.  bunchs of old R's and the latest craze is hacking up the older "K" bikes. 

 

there is a hacked up old R on the cover of the BMW motorcycle club mag "ON" this month.

They'd probably de-trim 2002's also.
