Well,the ghost has reappeared ! Yes,I don't always post but from time to time I do .I have been busy out in my garage and also was out on a few road trips on my old Moto Guzzi 850-T.Back in the spring I fired up the K100 for the first time in 15 years.After all the great advice I received here I was able to bring this bike back from the dead and get her running. She fired right up in under 2 seconds and ran like she was running yesterday ! Well,I guess that is to be expected when one replaces the entire fuel delivery system from the stuff inside the tank down to the Injectors.I still haven't decided if I will replace the injectors ,they seem fine but I do see the ones with the 4 holes on Ebay for a hundred bucks so it's tempting.Anyway,I was supposed to ride my MG up to my camp in Northern New York this week but the weather was so bad I decided to stay home and finish the K100 instead.No point riding 400 miles in the rain to sit in the woods in the rain so I went for it.Got it all buttoned up and yesterday I rolled her out of the garage for the first time and took her up the street a few times.She runs GREAT ! Smooth as silk and she's ready to insure and get registered now.I can't wait to actually get out on the road and go riding on her ! So the plan is to take the papers with me up north to my camp and hit the DMV up there where it's much less crap to deal with. I'm heading up the end of the month for two weeks and upon my return in early October this bike will be on the road and in service again ! Here is a photo I took of her yesterday ,Ain't she sweet

Nicely done.

Always good to see another K back from the dead.

Now it's a Zombie K that will never die. Twisted Evil

Yes it's a zombie for sure . I love it and can't wait to get it registered so I can ride it. With such low mileage on it I felt it was too young to be dead so being the mad doctor that I am I did a Frankenstein on her.She is going to give me years of good service ,this I know for sure.
