AN AWESOME 1977 BMW R100/7

S1

I spotted this way-cool 1977 BMW R100/7 at a local show this weekend. The bike was modded into a cafe’ style by a chap named Bob Long in Sevierville, Tennessee. Here’s what he did:

  • Completely disassembled the frame and cleared all unnecessary mounting lugs
  • Painted frame and components with PPG PR4 Red.
  • Painted side covers, tank and rear fairing in PPG WA600R Black and PPG GAN Silver
  • Rebuilt forks and stiffened with 8mm bushings.
  • Replaced rear shocks with Hagon SA adjustable coil-overs.
  • Added Burley Cafe’ rear tail section and custom seat cover.
  • Added Cat Eye tail light and BR sport mini turn signals (front and back).
  • Added European spec “low bars.”
  • Added “Pea-Shooters” slip on mufflers and header wrap.
  • Deleted rear fender and shortened front fender.

I think the results are fantastic… I love this bike!

CRAZY EIGHTS!

I’ve been told that the original 8-track player in my ‘vette is worth a lot of money. I have no interest in upgrading (I will be keeping the original) so it was only logical for me to try and find some 8-track tapes to play in it. Well, last weekend I scored these. All I can say is… the ‘vette will be rockin’ now!

CORVETTE EXPO

s1

The 37th Corvette Expo took place in Sevierville, Tennessee this weekend, so I combined a little business and fun, to check it out. The event included a Park N Show, Sales Corral, a cruise of the Smokies, a huge Swap Meet and a decent sized Auction. I wandered around for a few hours and enjoyed the show cars. I even found a hard-to-find trim part for my car, at the Swap meet, for about 1/4 the cost of a replacement part. The auction was interesting. From what I saw, the cars that sold were going for pretty fair prices.

Here are some random photos from the day. If you are a Corvette fan, I’d highly recommend this show. The horrid Sevierville traffic is a pain for sure… but in the end it’s worth fighting to get to the Expo.

DOMACO NORTON

I did a photo session with this cool hybrid Norton a couple weeks ago. It was built by local builder Lance Dodson, out of his Dodson Machine Company (DoMaCo) shop here in Nashville. Images from this shoot can be seen in the current issue of Grease Monkey Magazine.

THIS YEAR’S VERSION

I got ambitious and decided to re-paint my vintage helmet. This is the third version of it so far… simple, homemade silver-flake!
