Regular readers of Gas Blog may recall an update from early September pertaining to not just one but two R nineT’s that are currently being simultaneously customised here at Gasoline
These two bikes were brought to Gasoline by two very different people and as a result, the direction that each build is destined diverges to say the least.

Beyond all logic and reason as to why anyone would want gold anodised forks is without explanation yet alone the fact that someone at BMW thought that it would be a selling feature. Therefor, the logical solution to right the wrongs of BMW’s design team is to remove and paint the factory inverted gold forks to match the colour scheme.
