30's Dresch/BMW Motorcycle

So I was contracted to build this one-off bike, which all began with pics that I got off the web. I printed some copies and started scaling it with a ruler. The donor bike to be used was a '07 BMW 650 Country, which was ripped apart and the build began.... Hand building the frame from 1x2, then hand building the girder front end. After building the frame and front end, the fun began. Like all builds, the little things are the hardest. I hammered out the dash cover that holds the gauge pod and used the English wheel to smooth out the panel, which hides all the electrical. The gas tank was hand built out of .090 aluminum and then re-located down low in front of the rear fender. The linkage that mocks the original right side shifting was made out of stainless to work with the BMW's left side shifter. Seat pan was hand formed also out of aluminum and two BMX rock shocks were added for a better ride from the ridged frame. The stainless exhaust was also handmade with a aftermarket Harley muffler. One of the last things that was made was the intake pipe and the handmade air cleaner. The bike was assembled and ridden around in bare metal which did great and also turned a lot of heads. Now it's in the hands of the owners to be finished, so maybe one day I'll get some new updated pics to show you.......

Overall, this bike build shows the quality, craftsmanship and even the art side of what TBC can bring to the plate!
