    My New Bike

    Well six months later and many headaches I finally finished my BMW. Although not a cafe racer and thank god not a Bobber / Chopper like my last custom build bike. All I can say I am happy and cant wait to take it on a decent ride with all my chopper and BMW buddies that I am usually too fast for.
    From This

    To this

    Front coer is not on - I know I was in the midst of tuning the bike up and getting the timing straight...

    Isn't that a Bob-Job?
    Did you make the seat?
    Hate the chrome rocker covers (sorry).
    Are those Coker tires?!
    Which model is that- R60, R75?
    Looks cool. It ain't the bike- it's the rider. On the right roads, you should be able to tear it up on that.
    LOOK OUT IT\'S COMING THIS WAY!

    everything on the bike is custom, it has sooo many one offs it was a nightmare but rewarding.
    Also, the only chrome on the bike is the fork tubes, everything else is brushed alloy, just looks shiny because the sun is reflecting off the surface.

    Thank you for the compliments...

    Looks like an ok bobber bmw with nearly useless tires to me.
