BMW "Cafe' Racer" project - Page 5

5 months in, finally all stripped, I found a Spray painter in Montague Gardens, and took in lots of parts to get resprayed. Chassis, Motor covers, stand, cowling, Tank, tailpiece, and on and on. I also did a trip to the UK and bought some BMW Stainless Steel bolt kits, a Fuelcap for the tank, and so on my return, would be ready for rebuild process.

I decided to do the Motor Panels highlited stripes by hand-painting them by brush, so that there would be no bare metal or aluminium which would then weather over time. The finished result's quite cool.
