To give this bike its classic look, the choice was made for a piano black paint job with custom golden striping on the tank and the seat. A serious paint job with a stunning end result! To make the golden striping stand out, the rest of the bike is black as well, with vintage brown leather seat upholstery by Toni’s Custom Works.
BMW and especially the K-series, has nonstandard electronics. The moment you remove the original instrument cluster, you need a relay for the gear indication, the original speed signal is on a 6 Volt basis, the blinkers have their own complicated relay that isn’t one-on-one compatible with modern led lights, in other words: a nice puzzle!
