Never thought I would own a K100, But after owning many many sports bikes, was looking for something a little different, And this thing of beauty just caught my eye 😍

Wow, somebody put a lot of work into that bike and it came out nicely. I'm usually not a fan of the cafe thing but that one looks very nicely done.

WelKome! Enjoy your new ride.

Would love to be able to say that I built it, but I did finish it off, I did the lighting, moved battery, changed the chunky old speedo, And some other minor bits and pieces, next job will be wheels,

Why do all cafe racer builders put the petrol cap on backwards???

(Antsbrick, fitted that way the petrol cap blocks the water drain hole from around the recessed cap.)

I think it's because after they have the tank repainted they forget how it went on in the first place.

I spent many months commuting to Poole on a Monday and returning to Cambridgeshire on the Friday, Winter and Summer on my R100RT. When I first went a group of us stayed at the Dolphin Hotel (long since gone), then we tried different hotels just for a change! The Quay, The Quarterdeck, Sandbanks. Good area for windsurfing, but when I passed through on my way to the Channel Islands ferry, it had all changed beyond recognition!.
