Latest update for the G/S and new front end from a 1992 R100GS. Some misc ramblings about the conversion can be found here.


Got the R100GS forks, rotor (No GOOD), front wheel today, plus the Race Tech Emulators (FEGV S3802), only need one the other is for sale in the Old School flea market section.

Moto Bins supplied wheel bearings, head set bearings, and some brake parts.

The rotor wasn't any good, no need to measure it, so one was ordered from The Beemer Shop, plus the fork dust sliders.

Unfortunately I was off from work today, so the fork tubes were pulled apart and cleaned, new seals installed, the right fork got the emulator, and headset bearings greased and installed.

I won't go into details about the forks or emulator as Infracaninophile has a great writeup on it.

The front wheel was sent to Woody's Wheel Works a regular contributor here. Where the hub will be bead blasted and sealed, a new Excell 21x1.85 tube rim laced with stainless spokes and trued. Maybe three weeks till I see that.

Still waiting on the Harrison Mini 6 caliper. Looking forward to seeing it and posting pictures.
