Thread: BMW R1100S Repaint + Refresh

  1. #1

    BMW R1100S Repaint + Refresh

    I bought my R11S a couple of months ago, despite it being a 99 with 50k on the clock it's a really clean bike with minimal corrosion. It seems to have been very well looked after.

    It's fitted with Lazer cans (Standard cat) and an MRA adjustable smoked screen. I whipped the Top Box off as soon as I got the bike and fitted longer brake lines to allow the clip ons to be fitted above the yoke.

    I do like the bike in plain black but I paint / build / restore motorcycles for a living so couldn't resist the temptation to give the old girl a bit of a lift.

    I've been ridiculously busy over the last 6-8 weeks getting bikes ready for 'the season' but finally today I managed to roll my 11 up on the ramp and make a start.

    In addition to the paintwork I have just bought a Lazer decat section from evilbay, a bunch of new black stainless fixing hardware, new grips, new rear indicators, a seat cowl and a few other bits n pieces.

    I will have the seat re-trimmed to match the new paintwork.

    There's a bit of electrical .... err ....tidying to do too ...... but in fairness it's 99% related to the tail tidy fitment, aside from that it's untouched!

    Get on with it man.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    I bought my lines via a trade parts supplier. They're HEL stainless with black sheathing. I wanted them to look fairly stock. From memory they were a little over £90 including stainless banjo bolts and copper washers.

    Jeez you guys are worse than customers ..."Is it finished yet ... is it finished yet .."

    I have made a little progress today.

    I'm trying out some paint from a new supplier and adding a few extra ingredients to lift it a little. On that basis I have decided to paint the seat cowl in it's entirety before I move on to the rest of the bike. If I don't like it or the colours don't work out then I can just paint over it. I will warn those that are salivating over the prospect of a full on custom job that I'm going to be playing this one family safe. It's an R1100S and I'm going to paint it in a manner fitting with that ilk of bike using a scheme that I've used before. So, they'll be no crazy candy greens or flipped out pearl oranges.

    That said, it should look pretty cool though!

    I've made a start on the seat cowl this morning, in between coats I wheeled the naked bike outside for a good old scrub down

    Well it's like this, I did finish the seat cowl yesterday but sadly I'm not happy with the colour effects so I rubbed it down this morning and started again, I've had a bit of running around to do today so only managed to get it's white, pearl and xiralic clear coats on, I'll mask it up and lay the colours on tomorrow. Hopefully this time I'll be happy with the result!
