Gas tank is worth more than the rest combined, cable carbs like DelOrto PHF work better in dirt than succerupers.

A lot of conventional 70s bikes can be transformed into a decent looking street scrambler .. this isnt one of them.
The exhaust is plain ugly but its not alone on this monster.  :cry:

 BMW built some factory ISDT bikes in the 70's before the GS came out , this is an attempt to copy their style , except those beemers were pretty special, doubt if this is anything like those bikes .
It is in the darkness of their eyes that men get lost .

There are certainly better and nicer examples of cafe'd BMW airheads.  All over YouTube.
