GS 1150 enduro cafè racer

Hello everyone
I'm building a cafe racer on mechanical enduro BMW 1150 GS.
I open this thread not only to make a diary but above all for your support with several recommendations on various aspects.
I bought this GS damaged in June.
I 've seen by a mechanic and I could not resist to' purchase.
These are the pictures of how it appeared at the time to 'purchase

What 's the kind of bike that I have in mind?
A special lightweight suitable for off-road soft, comfortable, customized, however I can also use to go to work during the week.
As example, here is the photo of my G650X Country.

The first job was to remove everything (except the engine that runs just fine so that I have just painted it matt black.
The second job was to eliminate everything that is not absolutely necessary. The goal is to keep the weight below 200 kg (440 lbs). So the starting point for the rebuilding is the one in the photo.

Oh wow, I'm really really impressed, and can't wait to see your progress given what you've done already
If you have more pictures of what you did on the 650, or covered it in another thread, please let us know!

Looking forward to this. It's good to see somebody doing something with an Oilhead instead of the usual Airhead route.
