Hello to all, winter is here and work continues on this bike...
This is my first major custom project. It is a joint venture project with a Buddy of mine.
I have worked mainly on pre 80s bikes in the past so i find this project
Verry challenging. Especially electronically.
I will have some questions for people with knowledge out there. so if anybody knows how to hookup a motogadjet instruments on a k1100 i will need help.
Ho and by the way, this bike is AMAZING to ride

Thanks, i carved it out of a aluminum plate bend and cut into shape and blue insulation foam, once we were satisfied of the look, it was sent to a saddle maker in Montreal to reproduce an cover.

If you have lots more work on the bike, move your contents to the "Project Custom Motobricks" section.
