Hello All,

I've just picked up my third K project so thought it was time I joined the forum.
Several years ago I rescued a K100 in boxes and built a Scrambler type bike from the bits that were usable.

After selling that to fund a Vintage flat track Triumph, I missed the old Brick so kept looking for a new project.
In November i found an abandoned K75 Cafe project.....sat outside with waterlogged electrics and a 50/50 mix of water and petrol in the tank! That is now on it's way to becoming a Dakar style K75.

And yesterday I took delivery of another abandoned Cafe project. Upside down forks from a ZXR (not fitted) a BEP box to connect the standard loom to an Acewell speedo and plenty of missing bits to keep me busy in the garage for a while.

So there you go, if you need info on the British Flat track scene, Plumbing or drying out a water logged ECU i'm your man.

Sad how so many of these wonderful beasts wind up that way. Seems that most cafe "builders" don't have much ability beyond destroying the frame. Great that you are rescuing them.


Would like to see that Dakar brick when it's done.

Sad how much damage can be done in a couple of minutes with a hacksaw.

I'll get some before and after pictures up soon.
