I won't be fitting side-panels. Since they didn't originally come with this bike.
I'm not gonna pay that much for a eom rpm dial. I'll probably just get some after-market electronic indicator like I've been using on my Transalp.
I don't think it would be a "sacrilege" to fit a black solo-seat. But before I begin spending money...I'm taking the old ladie to a private mechanic who specialises in those old BMW. He installed a small shop in his garage. I'm a good enough "mechanic" to know when I should not touch something. This guy will check the engine and replace what needs to be.
I won't be riding the bike before the end of winter...in April? So plenty of time!
