Got me my first Beemer (after 20 bikes or so, mostly sports bikes) its been standing in a shed fore 10 years
but after poring some oil in the right cylinder i got it going. 4 veeks of riding now and soon a winter to fix all things needed attention.

Not sure what way to go

This is the before picture :-)

I'm confused, Blaine what happened to your links showing this bike on other pages? The proof if you will...did you delete it? I say keep em up.

I misread it as him claiming that was his bike (the green one.)

The green bike was built by La Raiz:

Ahhh I misread as well then, I thought he was claiming the green as his too. All is well.

I think it's due to my quickly deteriorating brain and affinity toward pictures that I skipped over the 'details'. In either case, good luck with your build!

the cool green scrambler is /6 not a /7.
sure does need a lower fork brace though.

That's a SWB.
Having recently opened up my speedo, I don't recommend it for the faint of heart. That pretty chrome bezel is crimped on, so you need to be careful prying it off or you'll be buying a new one...that's also the only part I can find for purchase.
Our resident gauge guy, wirespokes, makes those needles and a few other parts...It's super impressive. Send him a message if you really want to look into rebuilding the gauge.

Ok i try him, the speedo and tacho works fine, just that its hard to see that small needles on a bumpy road

Anyone have tips on the exhaust pipe fits between the brake and the foot peg on the right side, do not want to buy before i know it will fit. considering some of these and let them take over immediately after bends and stop just before the peg, what do you think?
