Hi all, Purchase of K100 imminent. Looking for technical info and advice for repairs and restoration. My skill base for fabrication, electrics & machanics is non existent but willing to learn. This will be my first BMW. My last bike being a CBR1000, some 15 yrs ago.

Hello from 1 horse town Barnsley 177912 You needs to read this bit I think: http://www.verrill.com/moto/newkbike.shtml. And don't let that looney Chris846 from just up the road anywhere near you. Next thing the bike will be in 40,002 pieces and look nothing like a K-series BMW.

Oh aye: and you'll be well aquainted with this address before you've finished: www.motorworks.co.uk, also just up the road in Uddersfield (is that place full of cows by any chance?).

Hi Ady,Hopefully you will be a happy camper when you get the K,if its rideable get some miles done before you look at a spanner.Ask any question you like someone here will have the answer,its cheaper than guessing first and crying after Mad Mad Horse/donkey?? more Pit Pony (retired) i think lol!   

Chris846 is in a galaxy of his own look at his latest creation the Roy Orbison Tribute bike a work of art.

As much as I properly, properly like The Big O, I'm afraid that it's Linda Rondstadt for me on that one. I mean, c'mon, I can even imagine myself accidentally calling Suzi 'Linda'.

Sorry Ady, it's great to have you on the forum, 'specially as you're nearby.

You don't happen to know Suzi Quatro do you?
