[IMG][IMG] Got this out of the mothballs for a nice ride today.
I lost half a finger in those. Now I wear a custom pair of Helds.
That is excellent! What is the scale length on the 3/4 guitars?
I would kill for that truck.  Or at least maim...
Those are Ohlins shocks.
Spent a little bit of time mocking this up today...
Early /5s were short frames.  And it wasn't an issue of being nimble...it was instability under very specific loads and maneuvering situations.  BMW (then Butler and Smith) actually offered modified swingarms and subframes to correct this on the early bikes.  You can easily identify a short frame from a long frame by looking at the swingarm welds. 
We have a TU250 and it's oddly entertaining.  We picked it up to keep on the boats.
One thing you need to know about the Motogadget instruments is the build quality can be sketchy. I've got them on several bikes and they can be a real pain to keep working. They are on a XS650 a SR500, a Norton Commando in a Featherbed. I've got another sitting on my bench that I purchased for a BMW project. They HATE vibration. The last two would fog up if they happened to sit in the sun for more than 30 seconds-no, they've never been so much as dribbled with water.
