Nice parts on that bike.

BMW did create the "cafe tourer" (better known as sport touring) class.

R100RS

What kind of engraving do you do? I do etched copper and bronze filled with enamel. I'd love to get a cnc machine to do real engraving with.

Bullet holes are old school so I like that but they also can hide small nicks or dings
