My BMW Bobber, part 73
CAD version here

Special thanks to:


This week we pressure tested the tank, found 2 tiny leaks. Aad welded the leaks and we gritblasted the tank. Aad had smoothed the left side already using the shrinking disc, on the right side he used lead to smooth the welds. This is maybe an oldfashioned way to do the job, but the quality is really good and I like the idea a lot better than using polyester filler! As I write this the tank is already at the painter.


I picked up the rims at the powdercoater and the wheels will be reassembled next week. Hopefully the paint will be ready too, and I can start putting the bike together!
