My BMW Bobber, part 8
CAD version here


After taping off the areas that I didn't want blasted I gritblasted both repaired cylinders, then I dropped them off at the powdercoater. The cylinderheads are being converted to run on unleaded fuel at the moment. The new Springer arrived and the oval tapered tubes of the springer match the tubes of the frame beautifully. There is enough clearance between fork and frame and between fork and fueltank. The fork is about 40 mm longer than I had estimated so the neck angle will need to be increased a few degrees, Ronnie won't be happy..... I started stripping the gearbox and found a leak in one of the valvecovers that will need to be fixed.
