Have you eaten off the engine yet? Or performed surgery on it? Quite clean, it is.

Is that an R1100GS swingarm and rear wheel?

Sorry, your shop is not nearly dark and moody enough to infuse the proper amount of soul into those bikes. However, there are hand tools hanging back there on the wall, so +1.

Is it just the lighting or do you have 2 tanks (red one and a black one) for that work of art?

Lots of things to like but for some reason I like your kickstand!

Definitely two tanks. The red one is a g/s or R65/45 tank. The black one is the standard Rbike tank from '85 on.

You have two too many fenders...
We need some underexposed pics to gain the dark and surreal garage look too..
And "By God Man" where are the dramatically smoking, flannel wearing, Pabst drinking, and randomly fettling with the idle mixture screw build video.

Nice and clean build, keep the pictures coming

Nope! It's got to be BLACK, STRONG, and brewed by some esoteric reverse osmosis vacuum container over a propane torch method!

Very nice build.....

...but you need a photo of grinder sparks and lady waving a checkered flag for an imaginary race to qualify "Hipster" .... look it up, it's in the rule book.

No, the picture would be a guy in skinny jeans and a vintage sparkle half-helmet kick-starting the bike while wearing a wife-beater

i love how the definition of hipster around here is pretty much just slowly expanding to be "a guy younger than me that dresses differently"...
