I'm going to try and put you in touch with a friend of mine (chapter member) who has a 1600-2 like yours. He's done some kind of brake conversion/fabrication to his for the same reason. It converts it to a BMW system that doesn't need a booster, and consolidates the clutch and brake master cylinders to mount on a single pedal box that is substantially stronger than the OEM box.

Yeah. Don't. Green looks much better with silver/gray/aluminum wheels. Or gold centers w/polished lip like style 5s.

I have been thinking about painting my ASAs ,either bright silver or maybe a gunmetal.. Feels like the black centers are played out..

there was a couple shots in your photo stream that I wasn't sure what you were taking pictures of (maybe I should say, "who you were taking pictures of")
