Well, I must admit I had to wiki Dnepr.  Sounds like you cleaned house with the trade (remind me not to horsetrade with you) and you have the bones of a great project.  Keep posting!

Yeah it really was a no-brainer trade.

Working on the Dnepr right now. I won't be going with a completely stock look on surface coatings and would love any suggestions.

Sold some of my "keeper" bikes last week to fund this project and clear some room in the shop. Spent a few hours picking up the shop tonight (many more needed) and managed to pull the some parts off,  including the pipes and motor.

On that note, I've sold the last Suzuki T series bike I have, so if anyone needs T250 or T350 parts let me know, I am ready to part with them and have more than a ton, including some NOS in the package parts.

How about TS90 parts?

RichArd: now that's not fair. BMW has made a constant design practice of leaving the engine as a distinct and obvious member

Deviant: I have a distinct and obvious member that looks better tucked away.

Jon bike it's looking great. I am building a t250/350 and could definitely use some rebuild goodies. Crank seals, etc....just let me know!

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Let me see what I can get together, I'm sure I have a mess of NOS gaskets and seals you could have.
