Beer and Bad Decisions

Post by plindz » Fri Feb 15, 2019 8:52 pm

Been a while since I've been here but what the heck - Turning the Grey bike into the white bike. it has been a very interesting challenge but thanks to BMW previously owning Husky it has made a small part of the transition easy. I am currently about 70% thru this project build but happy to share the transformation if anyone is interested

Welcome back, you may have left out the first part of the URL on the first 2 pics, the 3rd pic needs to be uploaded via the attachment thingy from your computer I am going to assume all 3 are the same pic.

That looks brilliant mate, I learnt some also, didn't know BMW owned Husky for a period of time, did that include Husaberg or was that KTM.

BTW where did you get your new disc rotors from??
Cheers Baz.

Got the full set on Ebay for the same price as one disc elsewhere - quality is great
I would have preferred to buy in Aus but a full set for $290 delivered to your door is hard to beat

That looks brilliant mate. I was going to do a similar thing to my 1150GSA and paint it in an R80GS/PD colour scheme. I need a new front disc, do you have a link to the Ebay seller that you bought them from?.

Hi Mate

This is the place I got them from - quality is great, they probably make them for the big brands and sell them re-branded
