G'day to All

I have owned my K100 RT 84 model for about 30 years, it was only a few years old when I purchased it. I rode the bike, mainly for pleasure, up until about 10 years ago. I have had it parked up and done nothing with it, but finally pulled it out of the shed this last week as I was going to sell it to an old friend, cheap. However, after dusting it off I realized I still love the old girl, so I have decided to make it a project bike and restore it to it's former glory.

Will be reading all the relevant information in this forum and keeping up with whats happening in the BMW world. The other reason I decided to keep the bike is I just bought a R1200GSA, so I am getting back into the BM's big time.

Thanks

Welcome back to the fold from the Northern Territory.

Have an 84 K100RT bought 4 years ago at 36k miles now on 83k miles. Now you have a good bike to ride, lot of things to do though if it has been sitting. Even though you have had it so long take a look on the portal page on what to do if you have just bought a K bike.

Best to start a new thread for it too, you will have some issues and things but probably nothing you can't manage to sort yourself with all the advice and help on the forum. Lots of it down your way too.

Good old Singleton, I have fond memories (cough cough) of running around the hills just outside the town while dressed in green.

Welcome to the Knuthouse

Welkome aboard Geoff. I'm just up the road at Greta.

If you feel like saying hello this Sunday then a few of us are going for a little ride up to Nabiac and you are welkome to join us - doesn't matter what you ride (or drive) on the day. If you want to meet up I can be down at the McDonalds carpark in Greta at 7:30am on a dark green K1100.

Plan is to meet others at Shell Heatherbrae at 8:30am.

Check this link out.

Cheers

You had me worried when you said 'project bike' as I hate seeing another good K going down the custom/cafe road but a full restoration - now that's the only way to go in my books!
Welcome from across the Ditch. Fond memories of Singleton too (sort of) from my time living in NSW
