Hello group,

Mathew Hinton here, former RM who's just bought a £300 BMW K75 with aspirations of building a cafe racer. I have little to no mechanical experience and this is my first motorbike project. I have set up an Instagram profile to track my progress, up and downs to be included.

I live in Cardiff with my family with a new born on the way in Jan Smile 

Kr,

Mat

Hello and welcome. Three hundred quid is bottom end for any K, so it sounds a great project. Did you buy it as an unfinished project? pics would be great - you'll be bombarded with advice. Ignore any that comes from some halfwit who seems to have hacked my account  Very Happy
