    Interesting R18 Custom in Europe

    I spotted this customized R18 when wandering around the Internet today:

    I really like the white paint and frame. I'm thinking of tearing mine down this winter and going white as well.

    Enzo500 - Buried in the description of the work done was the following piece of information regarding the specifics of the paint: "But perhaps the biggest visual transformation is the paintwork and hitting that many parts with colour and pinstriping is a hell of an undertaking. The hue itself is taken from the colour used on the BMWs of the Belgian Royal Guard in the 30s, with help from the BMW museum to get the mix just right."

    Well, I guess depending on your age, that's either a very good or very bad thing. :<)

    True statement. In this case, it is coming from a gen-x'er that loves to listen to punk rock. So, a very good thing.

    Look how little those R90 valve covers look stuck on the R1800 valve covers.
