The “Bundesadler” Tank

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words… So I’ll let these photos do the talking. My “Bundesadler” tank is now done and so my BMW R80 build has earned its nickname.

And with that, the BMW R80’s tank is complete. It is a little frustrating that the photos don’t quite do the Bundesadler justice; it is far more “distressed” looking in person, but hey, you get the idea!

Thanks for stopping by – I hope you like it!
