The standard RT hub is a cast wheel,RT`s never had spoked wheels

Electrics

I am getting to the stage where i have to tackle the electrics,are there any wiring diagrams out there that are easy to follow for complete electrical beginners,ie Dummys guide to motorcycle wiring,i am not afraid to have a go,but need to have a reliable system.

The current Haynes Manual for BMW Twins has easy-to-follow and coloured wiring diagrams in the back.

Bling

I have fitted a little Bling to the bike,nice set of CNC machined levers and master cylinder with Goodrich braided hose.i have also fitted a Koso speedo/tacho unit as reccomended by Richard Moore,dry build finished,the frame will be going for spraying in the new year.i also found a single seat on ebay,originally designed for a monkey bike,i think it looks the business.

    I had forgotten your build . . . it looks very good. I agree, the last bit is the toughest to get through; and it's worse when it's springtime as it was when I was wrapping up mine!

    When I built my R-75 ISDT replica, I made a new wiring harness from scratch. We do not have MOT or any other inspections. I only used what wiring was absolutely necessary. Lights always on, brake light switch on rear wheel only, only switch is Hi-LO and Horn off a /2. Ignition is a keyed Off-On off a golf cart. Battery is a little Li Fe Ballistic. No turn signals. Not really legal to 1975 USA standards, but OK for enduro use, It will be fine unless I screw up and get pinched by a savvy cop.
