What did you use for a lower, over the wheel, brace for the BMW café in the photo below?

Builds look good

And I'll be watching the next one closely as I happen to have my own SR500! Unfortunately (or not) its too clean to hack up.

I am aware of quite a few aftermarket parts providers out there so let me know if I can point you in any general direction.

I really don't know where the fork brace came from, it was on the bike when I bought it. SOrry.


The SR500 is going to be interesting. The engine is supposed to be reconditioned a few miles ago, but it produces HUGE smoke screens. I reckon it will use about a liter of oil every 30 to 60 miles. So something ain't right ;)

But we knew that when we bought it.

Thanks! Did not know they had a stock lower. I need to find a local bike to get a closer look.

This is my latest project bike. A 'barn find' in a guys garage and almost completely stock and unmolested. Just got it on rubber and registered. I have been mighty tempted to café this bike.... but think I'm going to ride it a bit and ponder the cosmic wrath I might provoke should I venture down that rabbit hole. I found the sweet spot between 7,000 - 9,000 rpm the thing HOWLS from 6 carbs sucking air.

I've seen a few of the 6 cylinder Jap bikes in germany. Man do they sound good!! Nothing beats the sound of an inline 6, car or motorbike.

I welcome any and all couch surfers if you are traveling through Augusta. I even have a well stocked garage for emergent repairs.

Going up on-ramp at 9k in 4th had an indicated 106. Short gears. Typical Honda snik-snik-snik....

Didn't want to bend a valve and take this apart again....

You should be able to find it at an Ural Club or dealer (it came form an Ural). It's yellow because I used a yellow bulb form some classic French car.
