Don't get me wrong, I still love Harleys but it was fun doing something different!

It's nice to see something different. Rear fender is clean, paint looks great. Well done.

I remember seeing that bike in a magazine or online a while back. (That was weird, jinx Justin) Super impressive. Any more photos? I think those engines are very interesting. So much the opposite of a HD set up with all the enclosed components and such. It's shaft drive too, right?

Yep...shafty.

It's a beautiful machine.

not tryin to sound like a complet idiot but does the heat bother the shins at all. I know it can't be bad on all BMW's cause I read a book called Investment Biker about the first guy to ride around the world on a BMW

Well I can tell yea from experience that your feet don't get cold and if they get wet they dry out quickly.
I own a 74 BMW r90 and after seeing these photos I was tempted to get the saws all out.

I love the Strombergs.... I know Duckman has some YouTube vids of this bike rolling. Everytime I see this bike the lights go dim..... cue "Endless Love".... disco ball...

Verrrry nice beemer. Those have to be the easiest engines in the world to work on. You can do a top end job in about an hour and a half...... if you dick around . Beautiful chop...... looks like beemer fag heaven.

Nope, the heat doesn't bother your shins at all. Of course I always wear boots when I ride. On a fully faired BMW (either RS or RT) you can ride in the rain and not get wet....... as long as you are moving above 40 MPH......

Killer bike man....I dig the zero style bikes where the front and rear wheels are fat and the bike low and sleek. Nice job!!!

Just out of curiosity, are there any "before" pics of this beautiful bike?

**EDIT** Nevermind. I found DBBP's website. More Before, During, and After pics than I ever imagined!

They did a nice write-up of that bike in The Horse #80, August 2008. I can scan the pics and post them, some great shots, but maybe the owner has already done this?

What a great bike, must kill the purists and Harley guys, but this is exactly the type of thing the "bobber" scene needs.

Does it really matter, its so custom the only thing left as BMW is the engine and drive shaft. Im sure it looked like all the other stockers out there, one thing, BMW's no matter how jacked they are always look nice at first glance when stock.

My friend showed me a chopper mag from the 70's that has a chop in it that is R/2 powered, pretty damned bitchen. Ill post it once I get the chance to get it scanned.

I can stare at this bike all day, super clean, well thought out, nothing was spared to make it top notch - just great...

My son walked by as I was browsing CC. He saw this bike and flipped out. He wanted me to say and I quote "That is the coolest bike I have ever seen. I LOVE that bike." if you knew my son you'd understand that is HUGE compliment (born and bread gear head).

That was Bill from Texas if I remember correctly. His gear got wadded up in the rear wheel and he yard-saled it off the highway north of San Felipe. Got it patched up and finished the whole ride. He was sleeping in our parking lot when we made it back to the shop. Nice guy, neat bike. It was honestly the first time I ever paid attention to a BMW, and I've been interested in them ever since. The bike originally posted in this thread is a mind-blower.

I'm loving Beemers these days. The drive shaft makes it such a smooth bike. Building a R90/6 for the Horse Stampede. Found an old German BMW steel 10 gallon tank, put a 4 gallon auxillary. Custom hardtail frame and some cool twists. Extended the drive shaft and expose a u-joint. I'll post some pics a little later.

Carl from Guilty Customs just sent me pics of his BMW he's doing. He's building a newer model into a bagger. You can find him on FB to see the pics. Check his out.

Every time I see this bike it makes me smile. I despise BMWs, always have, but I love this bike. Someday, Id like to build something of its caliber.

Fantastic bike with great attention to detail.
This has to be the most beautiful brake component ever:

i've seen this bike all over differen bike blogs, and I think I have a mag with it in there as well...somewhere near my bathroom. I love this bike. I also really dig that i-beam framed one as well. I'm looking forward to seeing that 10gal tanked one mentioned on the previous page as well. Amazing work on the op's bike, beautiful lines. I've always loved beemers since my father really dug them as well. I've never had a chance to ride one though.

That ain't a bobber...

That's a factory dream machine: a 1937 R7 that was only uncrated in '05
