Come back when it's a Cafe Racer.

If you have a project, start a new thread and detail the changes there. That way this thread stays on topic.

Not so much a cafe racer as a race bike, but still pretty cool:





Also, I don't think I've posted by R100/7 in this thread, so here it is:

I always wondered if there was a wrong way to install shocks with external reservoirs. What's the difference, anyway?

I have Krauser panniers that go on and off the bike so rather than reverse them every time I just leave them that way.
The Ohlins instructions do say the reservoir goes rearward.

I subscribe to BikeExif.com through a RSS feed and some really great articles that come up on a weekly basis. Hopefully I am not breaking rules by re-posting the lovely pictures they have on here and please check the blog out here

As I am currently re-doing my R100T over time was very cool with this article popping up BMW R100T

Stunning photography to boot

Tarozzi Rearsets?

Howdy -- any advice/insight you can provide on fitting those Tarozzi rearsets? I'm trying to figure out the best way to put a set on my own R75/5.

thx,

Wicked Wish I still had it!

Heard this one before...A bike I used to own and should have kept?

R90/S engine with R100GS transmission in a R65 Monolever Chassis. Used on the track 90% of the time I owned it.

I am not a fan of the color scheme, but I saw this bike in person last time I was at Perry's shop, and craftmanship is amazing. He is a pretty nice guy as well. Just about every time I am about to give him money to fix something, he has given me good advice on how to fix it myself cheaper. He definitly know airheads.

My 78 r100/7

R100/7 that I crafted into a cafe bike. This is a fast and fun and very loud BMW. It was a race bike from the 70's, so I've had some fun doing my own thing with it. I'll post link to youtube vid riding the canyon recently.

Used in a photo shoot in LA recently. I took this crummy pic with my phone.
