LifeSafer Interlock and more

We're fortunate to have right next door a shop that has expertise in not only autos but auto electrical systems, motorcycles, snowmobiles and installation and servicing of alcohol interlock devices. These interlock devices save lives and careers by providing convenient monitoring of breath alcohol level on the vehicle.

I see they have quite a good rating here.

They have worked on my BMW 7 series and installed a Zionsville Aluminum radiator and did a great job. Now they are putting the ST1100 back right, with proper black, stealthy bodywork. Nice!

ST1100A Body Swap

The turning of a 2001 ST1100A into what will appear to be a 1998 is underway. I just could not live with Wineberry Red. No matter how much I tried to convince myself that it was a fine color, the utter blackness of my ST1100 (no ABS) was clearly what I wanted. Stealthy, massive black, and little else.

So on with the project. Nickerson Rd Automotive in Ashland MA is right next door, and they keep my elderly BMW 740i going. I think they can deal with all the plastic bits you see here.

Many body parts on the floor

Stripped Bare!
