Hi folks,

Although I have just joined, I have owned my 1984 K100 RS for over 20 years.
It was always my dream bike when I was younger.
I had a poster of a dark blue metallic RS, but when I was able to get one, it was Madison Silver.
Although it is in good condition, I intend to bring it back to mint condition, over the next wee while.

I have always wanted an RT or LT to compliment it.
A couple of years ago I purchased a 1989 K100 LT.
Although low mileage, the elderly owner had dropped it a couple of times whilst moving it in his garage!
As a result it had a few scrapes and damaged paintwork.
So I have stripped it bare to check and clean it and have decided to change the colour.

I also have a variety of other bikes;-
I have a couple of 1975 Suzuki GT500's, one that I have had since 1977.
I Have a Kawasaki 550 Zephyr, a CCM R30 650cc Supermoto, and a 1979 Yamaha FS1E-DX 49cc (or a Fizzy moped as it is known in the UK)
Quite a variety, but you can never have too many.

Thanks for letting me join this merry band of K owners

Jim Readman

Welcome, Jim!

When you're elderly, you'll likely be needing a fairing-mount straightening jig for a similar mishap. Plans are on the site here, somewhere. You'd better find then download them soon while memory is still fresh. Laughing

New member from Central Scotland 177912 Laitch is right - Fibron is not known for returning to its old shape after the bike has been dropped. I have two RS fairings that have a droopy left mirror pod because of drops.
