Hello

Decided to join here as it seems like a valuable resource for technical information.

I'm Located in Northern Ireland.


Recently got hold of a 1990 K100, originally an LT but converted to a cafe racer.

I'm sure there are those who won't like me because its been turned into a cafe racer, but the way I see it I am putting another K100 on the road that hasn't even had an MOT since 2014 and had a myriad of problems needing sorting and to be given some general love and care.



Here is how she stands:

It's all about joy and if it's what brings you joy, knock yourself out. Some folks have made some fantastic "cafe" or "custom"  rigs but it seems more never get it done. Wish you the best with it and maybe some of us can help you "get r done"

Thanks. It actually suits me better as a cafe racer than as a luxury tourer as I only tend to use bikes for short trips and around the coast roads so this why I get to enjoy a K bike in a way that suits me. And its still got most of the features that make it a K.

Seems accurate, I bought this already part converted, but done badly and have just been finishing it off myself, you wouldn't believe how many things were wrong with it. Some people shouldn't be allowed near anything mechanical.  There has been some challenges but I don't give up easy, I'm determined to make this a great bike and I'm sure the knowledge on here will be helpful.
