Hello troops, just joined the forum. I live in Windsor UK my name is Lewis, I'm 29 and I'm in the Army. I have just bought an old 1989 K100LT that I intend to turn in to a café racer, most bits off the bike will be for sale and I look forward to extracting all the knowledge out of you all

Hi Lewis welcome to the forum from across the water. Flown over you many times on that flight path over Windsor into Heathrow, nice to see some of the faces.

Not sure everyone agrees with turning an LT into a café racer but its a good move if the plastics and bits have become tatty. Anyway some are happy to be able to pick up parts from these projects and there have also been some very interesting bikes created.

Don't be afraid to ask questions and someone will have answers. Some things seem simple and my advice is no matter what ask the question. There are plenty of café racer projects scattered around the forum and lots of knowledge of what can and cant be done and places to source parts.

Do pop up some photos when you can.

Olaf

Hi Lewis, we went to Windsor on our coach trip. Windsor castle was definitely a high point of the tour. I have never seen so many suits of armour and weapons. It was excellent.
