Just to add to this, the alternator cover from the 1978 D1 and D1A are just like the ones on the B2 and C2.  Starting in 1979 the label changed from all cap letters to only the K as a cap.

Thank you all for the good words!
 

So when is the wedding?  I want to see that piece of jewelry married to the frame!

 
I have some setback with the frame. It kept me from making progress on the project for  some time. But I still have a hope I wouldn't have to turn the engine into a beer tap. I'll write about it later.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! Holy Liqui Moly! That’s it, the Holy Grail of my BMW R35 project! A 70 years old gearbox housing that was never installed in a motorcycle! I can’t thank you enough, you really made my day!

I am too anxious to receive that gearbox to wait for something else. I sent you PM about shipping and so on.

Excellent video Gazz, could have only been better if you'd used the gas stove to make some lunch during the rebuild...!!  Sound track was cool too, who was the band ?  {old guitarist here}...
