Hii everyone, thanks for the warm welcome to the forum (especially Martin & the other aussie K members), the info available here is quite staggering, to a total brick newbie like myself i dare say it’ll prove to be be invaluable. 

I thought I would kick off a rebuild thread here rather than forever extending the new member thread.

After pondering on a project bike for 2020 I was considering an early CB750, however I’ve always liked the look of the K and thought it may be a nice & (I hope) somewhat reliable alternative. As my usual ride is a boxer I also thought the laid-down 4 would be a change. 

I’ve had the K home for a week now after spotting her on the ‘net, she was destined to become another cafe racer or spares bike😱....I’ve always liked the look of the “standard” K100, so the plan will be to backdate her to that spec with an original appearance. The RS fairings were pretty knocked about, so I wasn’t really tempted to keep her that way. She’ll be kept as Madison Silver - I thought it was originally the solid silver tone, but was pleasantly suprised😀

Specs:

12/83 K100 RS
Madison Silver
Condition? Running....but rough. 

Anyhow, here’s the pics so far- 1983 K100 RS Project - back to the 80’s 48668810

Manky fuel drained today, fuel pump & damper relatively intact I hope?🤞They’ll be both replaced anyhow, but I was happy not see a complete mess in there....

Safely home. The side covers do exist, just off!

Over the next few months all fluids will be changed, components inspected & replaced as necessary, wiring sorted & then onto the bodywork. At least that’s the rough plan at this stage. 

Hope you all like. 

Regards

Dan

I've brought more than one old K back from the dead and one of the first things I always do is pull the fuel injectors and get them refurb'd.  Doing that, putting in new spark plugs (NGK D7EA) and synching the throttle bodies usually gets them running like a top.

Good idea to respect the genuine appearance of the K!
I'm also building a K100 racer using only parts that were available in the eighties, from BMW or aftermarket: Fallert seat, Recchia (French BMW dealer) exhaust, ABR footpegs, telefix fork brace, Ohlins shock...
