Aren't most Bimmers independent rear ends? A BMW live axle must be REALLY old now and can't imagine diff ratio's will be suitable for bike engine builds? Sorry I only think hardtail LOL!

Twisted's Pan trike is a BMW rear end. I know they have many different ratios for diesel/petrol and engine size.
This two would be a good rear ends.

3 series as they have a full range of ratios to play with.
