Question Fork Reflector Question

Do any of you know anything about the airhead forks that have the BMW plaque instead of the yellow reflectors. I have seen a couple of projects here and like the look and considering this for my resto/clean-up/cafe custom project. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find anything online about the plaques.

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

I don't know for sure, but I would think any U.S. spec bike would have reflectors for D.O.T. approval.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Thanks guys,
I appreciate the info and the part number. Will look into these. I am still looking for info on the ones with the vertical BMW letters as seen on some of the bikes here: http://occforeclosure.net/bmw/bmw-ca...to-sharing.htm

They may be custom but thought i would inquire.

I have never seen those on a stock bike. The stock version is shown on the grey bike with red seat. It looks like they are masking off the letters and painting them black...
