You missed a good game last evening. Coach Arritt's final home game. They lost but it was quite the event.

Bike looks great!

Looks like you thought you were almost done back in July. Not that I'm one to talk, I just installed a few items last night that Santa brought me!

Any idea how much longer before she's ready to go? Looks like you still need a gauge cluster and some more items. Probably not easy finding these used and I'm sure you don't want to pay for new with everything she still needs.

So far, I'd say this bike looks killer! Love the red.

Moosemeat, it's hard to believe that's the same bike! Great job.

How did you get the melted plastic off the cylinders?

Nice job! Do I assume it's all finished and rideable now? What was the total cost?

Funny how many people seemed to believe that the only way to rebuild it was to get it back like it came from the factory. What you did was turn out a unique bike with a special story behind it and equal or better capabilities than the original. At the extreme, a bit of creative work with some carbs and junk-yard parts and you probably could have had it as a sweet-running rat-bike with fairly close to original performance capabilities for just a couple of thousand dollars. Obviously not your thing but an approach that would probably work for me if I got my hands on something similar.

Thanks again for posting my pictures bro!!
$4912.00 so far invested as you see it here. I had MAXBMW completely rebuild the final drive (I wanted to powdercoat the shell so I had no choice) that was $980.00 and is included in the total so far. But, I have a 16 mo remaining warrenty on it. Good deal! I can't say enough of good things about Joe, Tom, John, and Rose up at MAXBMW. Great team!!!!!!!

$185.00 he used a carbon fx material in the center where the blue was and a texture black on the sides. The gold chevrons on the side are the same material. Got the seat off of ebay used because my origional one was.......pretty much wasted.

It looks like a Ducatti now. I bet it even sounds like one

But the real question...How much did you spend on beer over the life of the project? Nice bike!

Hey Moosemeat, I really like what you have done here, sure you can quibble over the frame paint color (I think Kelly Green would have been the catz ass but that is just me).

I guess if I was doing this project, and I would have jumped on it in a heartbeat as well, I would have followed your lead but would have went more toward a cafe racer look, clean the frame of the tupperware mounting points, added clip ons, a cafe fairing, and a full Akropovic exhaust and it would be a beast. But that's my taste.

Have you run it yet? Are you looking to sell?

Best of luck to you.

one of my classmates at MMI saw the BMW pictures of the concept custom and suggested I take it in that direction. The custom tank, upswept pipes, clipons ect. The one Wunderlich built wasn't that impressive. They should have gotten rid of the telelever and put the conventional cartridge forks on the project.
It might be up for sale after the title is cleared and the bike is totaly complete.
I will update the progress as parts arrive and post new pictures.

The only question I would have is the condition (and strength) of the frame after a furnace blast fire like the HP2's been through. I'm not saying it was affected, but is it possible to confirm it hadn't been softened with the heat?
