Well after 2 years, 1 write off and 2 rebuilds my K100RS as finished for now. I say for now for as you know older bikes are never actually finished, there is always more you can do to them.
Bought 2 years ago at 147,000 km. Rode happily til Sept 09 when I was taken out by a car. Rebuilt after this episode and ridden happily again for a while, then decided to do something about the noisy engine drive coupling. Then found a written off '88 RS with only 27000 kms on the clock, so this was bought as a donor for mine, and another rebuild was begun.
Finally finished it this morning and took it for a short ride, most happy, smooth, quick and quiet,just like a K should be.
Not much of the original bike left on the bike now, just the frame, wiring loom, tank, sidecovers and handle bars, most other parts have come from one or another of the 3 donor bikes I have obtained over the last 12 months.

Two of the donor bikes were limited editions, so mine now sports the S front forks and the belly pan from one of them.
Over all I am happy with the finished product and look forward to summer arriving down under

Good job. Well presented.

Ummm...are the cops blind in NZ?

They couldn't issue you with a bigger licence plate?

We have had 3 different style of number plate over the last 30ish years, Firstly there was a smaller black with silver lettering, then the BIG plate like this one, black on white. they then reverted back to the same smaller plate like before, but black on white. When this bike was imported from Australia the big plates were the ones being issued.

The bike is looking pretty good.
3 donor bikes + this one.... Are you trying to start a K100 farm?

Nice bike!
What kind of rear shock is that?
I`ve got an Öhlins myself,improved the handling a lot.
Cheers,Wikur.

robinm,
I am impressed with your colour scheme, would look even better without the topbox. Wonderful job, enjoy the interest from other bikers.
Cheers Ajays

Hey Blakey,
Thanks! It was apparently done a couple of owners previous to me by a guy just learning bikes so its more a twenty foot job than anything showroom. Smile
