Hey Coops
If this is in the wrong place feel free to move it!

Warning, it becomes addictive viewing

The one that intrigues me is fitting a 16v BMW bike head to the A series block. :D

I have had a K1100 head for over 10 years and still the project is in early stages. I started machining stuff for it but messed up some adapter pieces. Then the project got stalled. I have since bought pistons from MED. Nowadays there are complete conversion kits which are tempting. So far I have resisted, RV8 stuff is more rewarding :D .
