Excellent work considering all they had to work from was a couple of pics of the real BMW bikes. Rumour has it that BMW officials at the rally were quite surprised when they saw it.

The workshop with a few other amateurs -

Gaston's red and white one in the background.

Had to carry your own gear in that first Sydney to Darwin event.




Used as a touring bike these days, the frame mounted fairing and two into one exhaust a 1986 improvement.

The name is in the place where the co-driver/navigator's name would go, so possibly not.

You need to upload your photographs to a photo hosting website (like www.smugmug.com) then link the url of the photo into your post using the little mountain-photo icon...
