Not so sure I'd be up for buying parts from them tough. Kinda defeats the purpose of building your own bike...
totally agree, lots of copy cat WM bikes out there which is not a bad thing really. yea, no need to buy their parts either. really simple alloy fenders with mostly generic lights or bars. nothing that cannot be done on a budget.

From the WM site:



This is lovely; but where's the battery? Kickstarter only?

Cheers

Looks like it may be behind the oil pan. If so it will suck if you catch a rock and it gets busted.

No turn signals? Some of these stripped down things are nice to look at or ride around the block but too much functionality has been removed to be practical. Mine are for riding: form follows function.

...it's a popular mod to make a battery box and stuff it behind the tranny. Kinda cool, keeps the weight low.

ya, or where the airbox resides, i like mine where it is. im not in too the total striped down look either but i do like relocating the turn signals, lights and making the bike less cluttered and simple, slick?

yea, i like signal lights too, but if form only followed function the airhead would never have gotten "the look". stripped down bikes reveal more of the lines of the bike and i feel much more nimble on the machines myself in about about town and into the country B roads. you can also save a hell of amount of weight, my R80 came in at 230kgs stock, Ive gotten it down to about 200 (guess) but 180 is very doable according to many if the cash is available

Question head light too small on the WM BMW?

I sort of think that the headlight is out of proportion to the rest of the bike, particularly the tank. I understand why they would replace the bmw part since it has the indents for the instruments. There have to be other head light shells that they can get their hands on. I see this every now and then on customs. Do you think that the headlight too small for the bike is a look that they are going for, or it looks better in person, or they just used what they had or what?

What I do like on that WM bike is the tool box added to the /6 tank.

does that headlight have instrument indents? ive never seen them

i think it works, the guzzi is another one, but the guzzi has the mount in a way cooler place in my OP.
