Hello everyone , madhatter here Laughing , im a 55yr old male and have ridden motorcycles most of my life . i live in Western Australia . I enjoy tinkering in the garage and working with my hands , which is becoming an issue as i have some nerve problems in my right arm and hand . This issue has resulted in me becoming unemployed so ive been looking for a project to keep me occupied . Ive just acquired 2 K75 models  , 87 and 94 years of manufacture and im waiting on delivery . I have plans to modify one of them to cafe racer , and maybe sell on for a profit , if not ill just have another bike in my collection ,lol , and not sure what im going to do with the other . Ill post photo,s of them when they arrive . I also own an 83 katana 1100 ive re built and modified , an 07 CBR1000RR , and a 04 yamaha R6 race bike which sadly has not seen much use lately . Look forward to being an active member of the forum and hope to get some pointers and possible trouble shooting advice if needed on all things BMW .

yeah , i have nerve compression in the neck , its like carpel tunnel , bone growth squeezing the nerves . ive had one op which relieved a lot of discomfort but im left with these nerve problems , weakness in hand , muscle loss , constant numbness and various levels of discomfort . im not one to complain , people have far worse problems than me .my biggest problem is trying to find someone who will employ me . anyway im looking at another operation in the future and hopefully that will improve the situation.

Hi MH, I'm up in Perth,with a trust 88 K100RS, they are a great bike and your 75 will be buttery smooth, I know sounds like a Chardonnay!! Anyway tons of help here and good documents which will help when you come to mod it.
Cheers
Mike
