New (old) parts II: aluminum fuel cap

This is an aluminum hinged cap from the beginning of the 1970s. In 1974 BMW chromed the gas tank caps. They were shinier, but did not retain the nice patina of the aluminum caps (instead chrome bubbles off).

  1. Hi there, superb bike you built. But I was wondering how you got this Aluminium gas tank cap to fit on your R100T gas tank?
