WTB: Speedometer Bracket w/o Headlight Ears

Looking for the bracket for the speedometer (#12 on the picture attached) without the Headlight and Signal Light mounts. I can't seem to find any of these anywhere, and BMW doesn't have a part number for it in their database. Weird.



AFAIK, these come with the R65's that have an RS or RT fairing equipped. Someone here might have one lying around. I have a U.S Address, and I can pay via Paypal.
Thanks!

I happen to have a couple of these left.  Several years back I researched this part and found only 12 were left, according to BMW, so I snagged a few of them.  This was a Europe only item and it took a lot of research to come up with a part number.

I'll PM you.

Here's the real deal.  This was a Europe only item and was used for the "agency" bikes that had a stripped down RT fairing.

Justin

I'd be interested in one also as it would fit nicely with my next plan for the R65. Broadly the plan is:-

Fit:-
K100Rs front end
Siebenrock 850cc kit
R75 swingarm, subframe and inner guard
R75 final drive
Fairing/tank/seat/ducktail from K100RS


Construction expected to start in the New Year when my R100RS is back on the road.

Tony, except for the R75 drive train, we're building the exact same bike!!!

I have an RS 3/4 seat being fiber-glassed right now, and an 860cc kit on the way.

Be interesting to see how they turn out. My initial mockup suggests that fitting the K100RS fairing, tank, seat/ducktail and taillight will be pretty easy, I'm hoping that the visual result will be pleasing.

Yeah, make sure you chronicle your build on the forum, sounds tasty.

Tony - I'll double-check to make sure I still have one, I think I do but not 100%.
