The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Very fine work, and my all time favourite BMW colour scheme.

I like how you took the blase` '80's smoke red scheme and turned it into the hubba hubba '78/'79 smoke red scheme.

Very nice!! So you got ride of the under-seat tank, and replaced the faux tank with a real tank... how much work did that involve?

One more. (I got no "before" pictures of the T3 I traded from RTWDoug.)





It wasn't all that bad except for being motorless.

Moderate amount. Had to cut and reposition a couple of the top frame tubes and then also find a tank with a pretty wide tunnel. The tank we used was off a mid-'90's Shadow. Made it a bit more complicated by choice, as the rear mount is actually hinged and the front mount is a post/pin. Just pull the pin and the tank can be rotated up to allow access to the carbs, airfilter, and electronics underneath it. It gave the waist of the bike a much more narrow and light appearance. Plus it allowed for the battery to be repositioned transversely under the seat in that ammo box we used for a battery box.

Compared to its original Interstate configuration, we took off just shy of 200lbs of excess "baggage". THe thing really scoots down the road now.....will run right with my Valkyrie!!!
