Hi there it's Tom from Gold Coast, Australia!

I did a trip over to Uluwatu, Bali several months ago and loved the cafe racer/scramblers that they had over there mainly done by DEUS Customs. Once I got back home looked around at different makes/models to do my own project however wanted a bike with enough grunt as had a Honda CBR1000RR 2012 beforehand. While looking around at a heaps of makes/models found a lot of them were either 250cc or 400cc which wasn't what I was after until I randomly l stumbled across a K100 RS 1985. Since then been in love with it especially the whole engine tilted over on the side look.

I have currently brought a K100 RS 1985 bike about 3 months ago and completely stripped the bike down, sanded and cleaned everything back, re painted the engine a gloss black and then frame, forks, callipers satin black. Had the wheels powder coated gloss black too. The tank, seat and mudguard I painted the original navy blue colour (have included picture of what it is currently at in profile pic).

I brought a couple of aftermarket parts from the cafe4racer.eu site such as the seat/cowl, ace well speedometer, rearrest, headlight. I have found the parts all fit quiet well just need a bit of modification and tweaking to make it look perfect. Other parts I have brought were just general maintenance to the bike such as replacing spilt/worn rubbers, worn brake pads, new tyres (heidenau scout k60). I think just getting tyres to fit the rims I had a lot of troubles. I had to research heaps and ask around a couple of tyre places as found a lot of the information on the net was outdated or not the look I was after.

To install the speedometer I made up a bracket that will will hold the speedo, ignition switch, hazard light switch and also the bracket for the head light all in one plus give it a classic look. Once I am aloud to make a new thread will post up a start to finish of the build where I can post pictures too of the speedo bracket etc.

Currently I am at the stage of wiring up all the electrics (thanks to Andrew who I brought the bike off has helped out heaps with giving me pointers and diagrams to assist with wiring up the bike), then will put all new fluids into the bike and lastly have the auto trimmer make up a nice seat for the bike then she will be ridable haha. Stay tuned for the new thread Smile

Cheers Tom
