    OEM: 38mm ... the cross-sectional area of the header is 1,134.11 sq. mm = 1,757 square inches.

    Using 40mm ... the cross-sectional area of the header is 1,256.64 sq. mm = 1.947 square inches.

    Carbs

    The carbs that we restored turns out to have issues with air leaks, Josh is having a hard time getting the car to idle properly, another mechanic and him determined it to be the carbs, so this week we bought another set of carbs, I believe they are for a later model bike and they are being redone, blasted and rebuilt this weekend. I will let you know what we come up with. Josh is just finishing some final detailing also on the bike, the Iron Cross swing-arm covers are at the pin stripers, getting the white stripes on the toaster panels done as wel. The relay switch that I bought a couple years ago was faulty out of the box, so we have another one of those going on the bike, Josh is using an older spare right now. So that is our update my airhead friends, have a great weekend,
    Thanks,
    Shane

    German Iron Cross Swing Arm Covers

    One of little detail that brings the BMW and the Porsche together is the Iron Cross details that we have added to both. The Torsion Bar covers on the Porsche and just like the new Swing Arm covers on the bike. In fact, the Swing Arm covers Josh had custom made on a CNC machine as a gift for me for the bike.

    Thanks,

    Congratulations! You should consider writing a story (maybe mulit-part) for the ON on this "journey". Maybe "the concept", "the build", "the first ride".

    Modeling Has Begone

    Josh has spent a little time in the studio with the bike and he is not sharing too much until they are perfect, I am so very excited to see the bike in June,

    http://beemersandbits.com/2013/05/fi...rs+and+Bits%29

    Over the months I have been told by many of you to notify the MOA about the build and maybe they would do a story about our journey with this old basket case. Does anyone know who I would contact directly and their email address?

    Thanks,
    Shane

    There's infomation on the MOA main page about submitting a story:

    http://bmwmoa.org/BMWOwnersNews/Subm...uidelines.aspx

    Basically, you just write the story in say Word, include pictures, etc., and they'll do the rest. Rebecca and Vince are the people to contact. But I think you should be the one to write the story...you have the most knowledge about the project and of course, the most passion.

    Shane, anytime a story about a motorcycle is written, it is more impressive if an impartial third party rides the bike to give his or her own opinion on the quality of work. I could be persuaded to be that third party if you want. Just let me know.
