New Build BMW Chopper

Hey all,
I'm new to the forum...been lurking for a while. Figured I'd jump right in and show a pic of my current project. I have been restoring old BMW's for a while and riding new ones as well. Got a wild hair up my a#* and decided to make a hybrid out of a stock softail frame (well, it started as a stock one anyway) and a wrecked BMW R1100RS.
Here is where I'm at now...

Rchop,

your is truely the exicution of the work "chopper" - taking something out of the ordinary & making look totally like is was suppose to work that way. Great job so far. Props for utilizing a mill that is normally NOT looked apon as a donor motor for anything other than........... a stock bmw with bolt ons.

Again - I'm impressed.

PACO

Nice work. I love seeing something that stands away from the "generic" custom bikes. I hope you finish it with the same unique approach that you started with. Jay

Yeah, I do have pics. I pretty much gutted the rear of th frame and rebuilt it around the swing harm. I had to ofset the right side of the frame about 2 inches and move the swingarm uprights forward a few inches to accomodate the increased length of the BMW swingarm over the stock Harley setup. I wanted to maintain the same wheelbase so I could bolt on struts, fender and seat.
The monoshock came off a 2003 R-1.

The Yamaha Monoshock is made to work with a linkage system in the stock configuration. Since I am using it as a direct damping shock, I had to increase the spring ratio. With some help from HyperPro tech support and a RaceTech adjuster...I made it work with this application.

I haven't posted any build pics for a while so, I will try to catch up. This pic shows my led tail lights and the blind mounts for the fender struts. Also the cardboard mock-up for the electrical box under the seat.

This pic shows the complete electrical box under the seat and the gauge mount on the battery box. I have oil temp on the right side and oil pressure on the left side.
