I always wanted to do a restoration but have never found a bike for such a project, all that changed when I came across an old K100 looking very unloved indeed. I was immediately intruiged by its power train layout and after getting it home I started researching about these K bikes, and couldn't find a bad word about them. Went to the llocal BMW shop and was quickly brought up to speed on the issues I would face so I started researching. It was then I then found Berts restoration link on the web and started pulling her down to look at all the potential problem parts. It was then that I found this forum and was pretty much blown away by the depth of knowledge and support. My mission is to try to restore this bike both mechanically and cosmectically back to its former glory. So with all the usual parts ordered (oil pump shafts, seals all rubber parts etc) from Motobins and no doubt a bag full more required I am at the start of my journey to rebuild this fine old lady.

The old girl when I got her home

Hmmm output shaft seal or oring issue for sure the clutch showed signs of slipping as well
My 84 K100 RS restoration Sany0110

Next to check the engine insides to see if the rivits on the output shaft are loose as known an issue with the 84 and 85 models due to only six rivets later models had 12
My 84 K100 RS restoration Sany0111

Lucky for me they are ok

Now for the oil pump and known the original oil /water pump was cast iron and one cannot get the original seal kits anymore the bleeder hole had oil around it (buttom of the sump ) so one could assume that the seal had perished after all these years I was hoping that someone had done the pump update already though.

My 84 K100 RS restoration Sany0112

My 84 K100 RS restoration Sany0113

Unfortunetly for me it was the original pump inners seen by the cast impeller and the nut on the shaft not a bolt in the shaft. Had to order the shaft pressed impeller and the new ceramic seal kit from Motobins very reasonable pricing from them the prices locally were criminal.

Now the healing begins cheers because most of the bits are very weather beaten I set myself up with the following

My 84 K100 RS restoration P1030710

Each part requires restoration I want to leave all parts original looking so I practiced with the sand blaster and good old elbow grease (Brass wire brush and mild detergent.

Shown here is the alternator

Result looks ok however I have ordered a ultrasonic cleaner like OG and I will see what that does for me OG has had some spectucalur results.

I will try VHT clear enamel on all parts at some stage in the near future has anyone had success with it on aluminuim parts?

Also pulled apart the starter motor and regreased the bearing and cleaned up

My 84 K100 RS restoration P1030716

The sandblaster can be as bad as it is good no one want abrasives in the machinical parts I have been experimenting with mould release first then silicon below is a injector before and after

Be careful with that stuff...apparently it goes e v e r y w h e r e!

But, it's biodegradable, so if you do it outside, the next shower will wash it away.

Outstanding pics mate! Keep after it and I'm looking forward to this one. Cool I've used the VHT before on calipers and what not and its decent stuff at a good price. Oh, and can I put in a request for documenting that oil/water pump rebuild as it was one that bit me in the a**!

Thanks,

Doesn't look abrasive enough for the engine (shes really weathered) I have machined up PVC plugs for the appropriate holes so the abrasive al oxide doesn't get in. I brought a gravity feed gun and will make a booth up to recollect the media I want to use it for the wheels and frame as well.

I have tried the brass wire brush wheel and found it abit to harsh and doesn't give me that wow factor, what is the correct medium Alby and where can I get my hands on some.

halo, One of our local bike mechs uses a commercial soda medium. It is like a fine rock salt. It explodes on contact and the fine particles strip away the gunk. Just do a search for blasting supplies. there are many! I think hhis was in 20kg bag. i will ask him tomorrow morning if he is in town.

I was going to mention that the compressor needs some beef behind it. I saw that the compressor halo had looked borderline...might work, might not for soda blasting. I've a puny 5 gallon unit and it won't work at all.

Looks like you mean business Jason. One thing I found out a while ago is with those sand blaster guns if the tube that goes to the tub is a thin walled rubber get a plastic reinforced tube as the rubber one sometimes collapses wiyh the vacuum from the venturi and stops the flow of medium.

The huge benefit of soda blasting is that one can wash the part in hot water and hey presto it is all gone whereas with sand or grit that will not dissolve and is there for ever. The trick is to get the amount of air delivery at pressure and the two compressors could probably be paralleled to give extra flow.

Really different finish to the sandblaster !!!!! will put it through 1 more time.

THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT BLAKEY & ALBY & K FREAK for this sodablaster I wasn't going to try one but now I have another great tool at my disposal for my resto.

I have been researching Ultrasonic cleaners and I will buy a ultrasonic transducer and design my own frequency and drive circuit. They say one centered on 40khz that sweeps 12khz each side is better. Then I can use a lager container, I have all the parts here but the transducer that is about $70 at Jaycar.

yes you have to find the resonant frequency of the transducer for maximum effect and efficency ...of corse as the transducer comes into contact with things ...(ie mounting with epoxy ) this will change quite a lot, so yes i would agree make it adjustable for the centre frequency

good job on the tbs....yay cheers

I see the ultrasonic cleaner as being best benefit in small holes/ports/chambers where crud has built up and there is no way for the soda to get in there ...same for threaded sections into body of device etc ,

i would imagine the cleaning fluid used in the usc would be dependant on the job also ..

maybe concider them both as complementary to each other ...if that makes sence (eg the usc would clean out the air bypass ports quit well through the tbs but best left for last after all the big stuff has been blasted off)

Alby wow you certainly went the whole hog that's a huge powerful unit. Unfortunetly out of my price range at present since I do design engineering I have quite a few sweeping frequency generators and complementary h bridge MOSFET driver supplies capable of high output currents hanging around you are right through the 50watt transducer from jaycar is too small i will have a word to our
Asian suppliers to see if they have larger ones pretty much I will try to find the biggest trunsducer for my buck and design a circuit for it.

Seeing as I am the original skinflint I am watching closely.

i think the secret is not to buy the biggest but have a look at watts per dollar, amongst the lower power units i mean 5x 30 watt units a 20 each could be cheeper than 2 x 80 or 100 watt .....if you get my drift

140 db out of what alby.... thats a pretty big number ....maybe one or many of those motorola piezios ...they have been used for bat scarers and stuff for years ...you would have to find the 100 watt versions though as the domestic versions 50 watt tend to blow up at those output levels. pretty flat responce from about 7 k up to 50k from memory

You guys, the thing is I wanted to do this project as it was a break from my electronic designs in my day job but it's all good and I will help out where I can. If we can keep it to K100's it would be a bonus though.
I'm still buzzing over what a good job the soda blaster does the finish is good and I don't have to stress about the foreign matter doing damage think I will try it on the engine block as I have the parts now and need to start to put her back together do you think I need to take the head off to have a look it's got 101 thousand k's on her Question Question

I would leave well alone. There are many bricks around that have done 3 times that distance and never been touched. Maybe just retorque it when the engine is still warm but do one bolt at a time. Like back it off pull it out and apply some antisieze on the thread and under the bolt head and then pull it up again.

Jason,

I think you and Oldgoat are trying to make these bikes better than they were new.
The result looks very impressive.
