Very observant of you, why yes, I do stamp all my tools with my nick name.

It's a Cycle Works, http://www.cycleworks.net/ I need to pull the exhaust to get the fairing off... ya I know I don't need to pull the exhaust, BUT, this bike had the lower fairing repaired at one time and they glassed in the lower fairing split.
[Correction; the lower fairing appears to be original and never had the split that would allow exhaust removal. Perhaps the faring split was a later design feature, of perhaps something owners did as a modification. Who knows? Doesn't matter to me now that the entire RT fairing has been removed]

My Bike that you used in the Photograph is actually an 81. You have it shown as a 79 :evil

Looking forward to seeing how the project goes.

I'm just finishing a book by Brock Yates on the Cannonball races, and in '79 Loyal Trusdale and Keith Patchet ran it two up on a R90S. I won't do a spoiler in case any one wants to read up on it.

Yes, I see the later air box now. I'll make that correction.

Your "S" is EXACTLY what I want mine to turn out like, down to the black paint and white pin stips.

It was easy to do. The only thing I wouldn't do again is buy the cheap fairing kit from Motobins, the mounting kit is very poor.

The bikes actually sitting in my garage again, sorting a dropped valve seat out for a friend who owns it now.

TINK 05-05-2011 06:11 AM

correction...

Rob, I corrected the bike year and gave you credit for the bike build.

Looks like you're going for the longest shock award. Why not use an 1150 swinging arm and shock? Richie Moore will give you some serious go for the motor http://www.moorespeed.co.uk/bmw-engine

Wow!
