You can see it in standard faired form from when he initially purchased it quite a few years ago,using it as his work commuter (though not until he very quickly removed the huge fairing) and general runabout.
A few years ago,as mentioned previously on this blog, he had a accident when we were on our way to a Cafe Racer day at Jack's Hill Cafe in Northamptonshire. Luckily he hadn't already fitted the twin plug ported heads because he did some fairly serious engine damage with a large hole in his rocker cover and bent rocker supports etc.
To a lot of people they might think that it is just a fairly standard looking old factory BMW because I think the styling is still quite subtle.
The pics will speak for themselves,but here is a brief list of the main mods:
BMW K75 front end
Later wheel rims laced to early hubs
Twin shock frame changed to a Mono
One off front mudguard
One off rear mudguard
One off seat base and remodelled seat
Early /6 petrol tank
Plus so much more
And it goes bloody great !
