No Charlie, it's one of the bikes I bought some time ago for 400.00 each, both were mostly disassembled with all kinds of parts in boxes. The prior owner had been hit on the K75 in the rh saddle bag and had tweeked the frame slightly and he had bought the K100(already taken apart by someone else) to swap his stuff over to. He was living in a apt complex and I guess the project got overwhelming. I did get it running right after I bought it and it runs fine, no funny noises but I wanted to get the K100 done first and that took more time and money than I thought it would(surprise!)

Since I figured out how to post pic's I'll keep you guys updated on this project, as of now things will have to wait about a week until the next check comes in from Uncle Sam. I'm trying to stay retired and not have to work even part time much to my wifes dismay. I figured 43 years was enough working in the car business with lots of no weekends off during that time.

I had a go at fixing the rear frame section, after applying blunt force and some pry bar muscle it seems to have turned out ok, the repaired photo may look a little off due to the camera angle but in person it's pretty much spot on, you can't tell anything with the cowl on.

Thanks, I'll touch it up with spray paint and it will look good as new.
