Nice project, but it looks like 17 inch wheels? Looks way to small..

Very clean and well put together.

What's with the front mudguard? Anyone else thinks that bikes without the front guard looks strange?

Yep they sure do and on a wet road you are riding through your own spray

Looking at the first pic I'd say GS bars because of the crossbrace. Overall I like it.

The owner posts on another forum, I think he's a UK ex-pat.

Here's what he says about it:


My K100RS 16-valve turbo conversion, 95% complete, after 300km.
It's the first time I've done a turbo conversion so I've kept it simple, and discreet!
Small Garrett turbo running 7psi of boost, SU carburettor with modified float bowl and gravity feed fuel supply, and modified early K ignition box.
I know that a fully mappable injection system would be more efficient, but with a total conversion cost of just less than 900 euros, I'm not complaining!
It starts easily on the button, idles like a V8 and accelerates extremely quickly, on bumpy roads the trail bars are very useful!
It hasn't been on the dyno yet as there are a few jobs to be finished, but I would estimate at least a 50% increase in power and torque.
Downsides? Rear tyres aren't going to last very long!
