I sent in a couple of shots.
Some things to keep in mind. For a magazine he is going to need some serious resolution, so make sure you send him something big that he can use. Also, as many of you have mentioned, not much on a modern airhead that makes it modern is visible from the outside. That being the case, just send him a picture of what you have, but try your best to make the composition of that photo interesting so that your photo will stand out among the others.

For example, this is one that I sent in:

Hi,

go to

www.2-ventiler.de

it is a german website, and there are some real experts when it comes to upgrading airheads. Search their galery for "Umbauten" which means conversions, and you will be amazaed at the ingenuity some guys have displayed.

greetings from Germany

Alfons

Yeah well....

I searched that site for about three minutes before giving up and coming back here.

Trying to find something specific thats listed in a language that you can't understand is pretty... uh.... Lets just say "Frustrating".

As far as the topic at hand goes. I spent a lot of time building my Beemer but all of the mods (And there are a ton of em!) are invisible.

Well, everything except the LED tail lights anyway.

Modern Airhead

Note the 1983 front-end. And the new tires on the snowflakes. Even has an oil filter now, and a real battery!




Doesn't get much more modern than that!

Use google translator on your web browser and the German sites are much easier to understand.
