colors..

So I was thinking color-wise.. It might be neat to go with a color scheme that is based of a WW2 captured german aircraft or visa-versa.

That "WW2 captured German aircraft" is in fact a North American Mustang fighter with German markings.

Your bike is really looking like something special.

Don't pay any attention to Paul. That's only a Mustang in some books. In others it's a German fighter.

Yeah the "visa-versa" I mentioned... couldn't actually find a god pic of the captured German version.. My WW2 aircraft knowledge is limited... limited to the fact I can recognize they are aircraft, and thats about it.



Pic i found while searching horn options.

ignition

Does anyone have some experience with adding a keyed ignition on a /5?

I Have seen an image somewhere but can't find it.. and would like to do it to mine. I just know with my luck the first place I park will be the last I see it with only a button.

thanks

Here's your huckleberry: http://www.rockypointcycle.com/p-bmw...rics-9650.html

It's a bone simple install compared to the prong mounting misery associated with the stock ignition plate.

Just the stock harness, but the levitating connector block at 10 o'clock is from the new keyed ignition kit.

Thanks! Looks like you're running a cone engineering muffler too? Love mine, but damn… louder than a bear on fire!

Great work BTW.

Yep. That's in Atlanta, GA. I believe Fuller Hotrods did it, if I'm not mistaken. http://fullerhotrods.com/
