Hi fellow brick owners!
My name is Ian and I'm a motorcycleholic.
I bought my first K bike a few months ago with a deal I couldn't refuse.  She's a 1987 K100 RT with only about 43K miles.  I actually got her from my local dealer, who bought her from the original owner on a trade.  I have much of the original paperwork.  

Sorry to disappoint the purists, but I already have a 2014 R1200RT wasserboxer so I didn't need another bike with fairings.  I specifically wanted the K because I am fascinated by the looks of ones that have been stripped down to showcase that motor and I already have a bike with full fairings so I am going minimal with this one.  It's 30 years old and mine so it's going to be my project!

I have already taken off everything I could and replaced the headlight and front turn signal with LED pieces and replaced the handlebar setup with clip-ons.  I got to know her better by replacing all of the fluids (except coolant), spark plugs, brake pads valve cover gasket and swapping front springs and rear shock with Progressives.
Still a lot of work to go to get this where I want it but I'm going to enjoy riding some before I take her out of commission again.
I'm interested in someday replacing the fusebox, gauge cluster and EFI with some aftermarket pieces so I will be studying what others do as much as possible.

If anyone needs spare 87 RT parts let me know!
Ian

Pity to destroy what sounds like was a good K100RT. There are plenty of Ks out there that have already lost their fairings due to wear and tear and spills etc. Hope you can find someone who wants those bits you've discarded.

There are a few members here that have cafed their K-bikes and solved many of the problems you'll encounter. Hopefully you'll find the help you need. WelKome to the forum. Cheers

Thanks!
This one actually had fallen over on it's side (but had crash bars).  The passenger mirror was broken off.  The paint has it's share of scrapes and didn't seem that well preserved for the low miles.
