Hi all,

Its been a while, but I've something to show you.

My project for the winter has been a bit of fun turning a R/T that I bought solely for parts, then decided to make something a bit different. I know that the purests wont take to it but the out come I think is better than a shed full of bits.

The R/T as I bought it plus a trailer full of parts.

Too good to scrap Collag10

The Bike near completion.

Too good to scrap K100_m12

The only things that were not off the original bike are the headlight, bars and mirrors, plus the home made fiberglass strip under the tank.

everything else has either been moved or cut.

Regards Bushy.

Nice job Bushy good colour too. The exhaust now looks out of place , too big and bulky a Motad exhaust would look better IMO as its round and would follow the lines of the front better . Wondering how your mounting the number plate as well
Cheers Tony

I agree with the exhaust, I have a spare thats not in great shape, thinking of cutting down, maybe re rout over rear wheel to give the rear end a floating look.

The number plate I've mounted on the right crash bar, its whited out on photo due to reflective nature of the plate.

Bushy.

Wow, that is pretty.
Interesting location of the dash/ ignition.
And what are the mirrors? Just an ebay jobby?
And where are the front indicators from?
I have done the same to mine and just got some crappy ones from a jap wreck. they have a rubber fork mounting.

Looks good a set of rearsets would help to get the knees a bit lower and make for a better riding position.
Using the original ductail is good it sure beats the cut in half plastic drink bottle and flat piece of plywood that a lot have.

Indicators, came in parts lot on ex police rear top box. Says BMW on the lense possible k1100 ? mount home made welded to bracket that holds headlight and instrument clocks.

Andyb...

Feels like it takes off faster than my full faired L/T , maybe due to being 20 odd Kg lighter, or because theres nothing in front of me to dull the sensors, more wind, more noise, = more fun.

thanks for the possitive replies, this is all good fun, Looking forward to this summer, I know whitch bike I'll take on those hot days.

Wheel hugger is just the rear guard insert (plastic), looking fo something more solid, may have to manufacture one out of fiberglass or purchase something not too expensive, any ideas on a rear guard from another bike model and year if possible.

Another question comes to mind, Bushy.

I see you've eliminated the rear handholds on the tail cowl. I'm thinking of doing the same thing. What technique / materials did you use to fair in the voids resulting from removing the handles? Did you just glass over the openings or did you use something to back up any fibreglass mat to give it form and contour?

Thanks.

Right. I was thrown by the exidence of tape having been painted over in the picture and I assumed there was a glass job performed.

So I'll take a guess, Inge, that the tail cowl from an '85 will not fit an '87 K75 because the interface along the line of the seat is much steeper on the '85 than on later models. Is that a correct statement? I can imagine that there will be a significant gap along the line of the seat that cannot be closed.

thanks for possitive replies.

Bars are e-bay special clubman style,

Colour is marine Rescue Orange by Norglass Marine Finishes.

Bike seems to take off faster than my other R/T maybe because its lighter or the feeling you have when there is nothin' in front of you except road.

Mate you have something there. That rear guard makes it all look right.
Very nice indeed.
Can we get a shot of you sitting on the bike? Or a ring in, I don't care.

We always see these alterations to a standard model, but never see anyone sit on them to see how they change the dynamic of the ride.
Looks to be very forward, but if you are a bigger bloke like Mr Klompy or Halo it might not be that big a difference.
By bigger I mean anyone taller than me.

Yes, Its a Norglass Weather Fast Enamel , called Air Sea Orange. I used  PENETROL in the mix to assist in its penetration and stop the paint from pulling or setting too fast so no orange peel, perfect finish with no cutting back. I was happy with the first job but have since made alterations so I will repaint this summer (here in Tassie it doesn't get too warm to paint during the warmer dryer months)..

That does not seem too far forward.
I am only 5'9" but shorter arms to go with the shorter legs so it might stick me a bit further forward, but still looks to be a comfy enough pozzy.

Did I mention I like the rear guard. Fills in that gap left by so many others.
