G'day from Duncan in Sydney, Australia...  I bought a 1985 K100RS recently as a "fixer-upper" - for all of $500.  Intention was to turn it into a cafe bike (sacrilege?), and I had lots of fun doing it.  

44 kgs of 'stuff' was removed…!  Tricky stuff was making the 4-1 collector box out of stainless, the f’glass seat pan/box (messy - lots of foam and plaster of paris for the plug and mould), and making the tail light/indicators from a bunch of red and amber LEDs.  I chopped the frame off behind the shock mount, and welded on a bracket for a small gel battery under the box.

After selling the excess parts, it stands me in at about $900, and one can't go wrong with that...  It goes like the clappers - great fun to ride!  I've always been a Ducati tragic (still have a few in the garage), but I'm rapidly becomg a K-convert...

Nice lookin' bike Duncan,

If that cost you $900, then I am only too happy to give $1800! Can't ask for more than doubling your money.

There is some good looking cut Ks showing up and I gotta say I'm liking them more and more.

Welcome to the forum, this place is great.
Very Happy
Jez

Looks like your fuel cap is also fitted the wrong way (2nd one I've seen tonight). That way it blocks the water drain hole.

..or, if I'm not mistaken, you can drill the flange and make a new one (see Chris Harris video on Youtube for replacing cap seals for a good description of the issue.) but turning it is easier. Welcome Duncan-K
