K1200RS – design work in progress

Welcome back to my world. Since August I’m working on this design. It’s pretty hard to obtain ANY line on this project. I’ve landed on making all the body work on my own. This is a challenge also. It will be my first tank made from a scratch. Material is steel 0.8mm and 4 mm iron rods for a mold. I’m not able to weld aluminium at the moment so that was the only option. I’m about to make tank and rear as one part.

The other thing that focused your eye is the majestic front BMW kidney-like radiator holder. This part was made by a friend of mine from Targal Motorcycle. This mold is made from 27kg block of raw aluminium. After cutting it weight around 6 kg which is a lot, but I’ll try to address this issue later. It would be a spectacular feature, as I wrote, radiator holder and a headlight.

Enjoy rather poor photos.

This one will be very interesting.

A friend of mine was looking for a big bike to match his size and make him stand out on the street. He wanted to built something from a a scratch so we decided to buy this wreck.

There are not many things to say right now except this project is bonkers from the start.
