How did you paint the gearbox? Is it powder coated? Did you get it in the oven with all the seals on?

Clean title from former BMW dealer $700usd

Touratech Revamp Kit $3100 (kit was used)

I am guessing total around $5,500 of parts, paint, and supplies. I could have just bought a used one but rebuilding this bike to my spec is theraputic.

Gear box paint is Rustoleum from local hardware store. I've used it on snowmobile restorations. Holds up well.
Just remember, once you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed.

Devil's advocate. Hell conscientious and informed and downright argumentative dissenter.
