Thumbs up Newbie Onboard-Out of the Shop

I thought I would just send out a pic of my Beemer now that she is out of the garage. I started at the end of February and just pulled her out of the shop this week.

Just to name a few things I have done in the past month to my bike.

I powder coated wheels valve-covers and handlebars. Repainted- brake calipers, Fork tube inserts, rear master cylinder, fender brace.
Removed and cleaned exhaust pipes, rear Master Cylinder reservoir.

Rebuilt- rear brake master cylinder, rear brake caliper. New wheel bearing seals, wheel bearings packed.

Adjusted the clutch.

Installed New Parabellum windscreen.

Mounted New Michelle Tires with tubes.

Fresh synthetic oil and filter.

Total time and costs= 6-bandaids 2 butterfly stitches 1- bottle hydrogen Peroxide 1-tube antibiotics 1-Large bottle of Ibuprofen. countless hours,
29 prayers, 2-Hail Mary’s.

Total money Spent=”To nervous to total!” (I am just teasing with the exception of prayer and the money.)
