How many times have you been followed by a white K bike and thought ... I'm  in trouble now. 
In 2003, my father in law gave me the opportunity to experience my first K bike , an ex- Police 1987 K100RT. 
Coming up from an 83 GSX 250 to a K100 was a blast to say the least . 
Of course riding the ex-Police K bike brought its own inherent issues . As it was my daily ride to work , and clothed in my pale blue work shirt . Drivers would continually ease up on their speed as I approached from behind . At times this was most disturbing , especially when I needed to get somewhere quick .

As I have now progressed onto other K bikes , the what to do with my RT is in question .
Shed space is at a blowout .So my thoughts of storage have extended to a local motorcycle museum . 
The museum in question holds a vast range of motorcycles , 900+. With the majority of exhibits being donated , and in as used condition . 
This is not a "concorse" museum .

The bike once tidied up and ready to move will resemble in some modest way a K100RT Police bike , at least at first glance .
With the addition of an interactive " Push n Play"  interface panel , to display the lights and possibly a volume controlled siren , riders as a whole can continue to share their K "Police" experiences .

Thanks to Seanii , and his recent donation I was fortunate to receive an original screen and some additional fairing bits which will help greatly.
I will however still need to source out some extra parts , 

Parts needed to create the police effect :
Front and rear crash bars 
City panniers ( Z brackets not required) 
rear blue strobe light on pole
2 x front 4" round blue lights 
Lastly , the "POLICE " labels .

It sounds like Klompy may be able to help me out with the crash bars , I'll be popping out his way in a couple of weeks time .


Following an excellent Koffee break with the Krew at Robertson , I headed back into central Sydney to catch up with Alex McCarthy.

Alex of course is one of our resident forum spec experts regarding Police bikes.  Half a day well spent scrutinising bits and pieces .
Thanks Alex , I enjoyed the visit . 

This is the bike as it currently sits . ( old photo )
The original rear radio / top box is still in place ,  also a spare in the shed .

thanks Nige, 
The biggest worry about this reno , will be when it comes to transporting it up the highway . We'll constantly be looking in the rear vision at a police bike following us .

In the UK, as long as the lights are covered and the POLICE wording has a bit of tape stuck though it, you're legal. In Oz...?
