thank you Dai

I'll make shure to post my find for other to use,

I'm currently hooking up the Motogadjet cronoclassic instruments, 

LED blinkers (WITH RELAY MOD) LED headlamp, and horn are hooked up and working fine.

Neutral switch is hookedup also.

Next is to plug the gas tank and see if it starts.

I might be missing a thing or two...or three, i will go from there 
but i am almost done
Spring is here in Quebec, snow is melting.....

I'll post pics in the near future.

It all started with a freind of mine, lets call him A. Bying a old k1100 on Kijiji.
Passing by my work a few days later to show his new bike and grab an espresso (we make the best espresso).
He said: I want to make a cafe out of this, but none will do the job!
My work being slower in the winther, i suggested to build it in my basement shop

Rearsets were sourced from Uk along with the new rear brembo master cylinder.
Save alot of weight over the stock pegs and a better position of the legs with the new seat and clip ons.
And all was installed. And secured.

Don't throw the ABS away. If it was working, someone on here will definately buy it off you.
