BMW R80 - No.8

This project has been quite a while in the making but we now have a rolling chasis ready to add some fenders and a tank and all the little details that will make this bike special.  The pictures show the old tank sat on top of the frame, this is going to be sectioned to reduce the bulk and stretched to smooth it into the seat.

How much did the wheels set you back and what are you planning to do for a drive shaft? Looks great so far

the wheels were custom by Taylor Made Wheels - and cost a fortune. The drive shaft is being retained and the rear wheel has been cast for this. I am opening it up and its going to be chromed!
