Hello from Texas!! Thanks for the add to the group! I am a newby to the BMW K series bikes. Hell this is my first real street bike. Everything else I've owned has been Dirt bikes and couple E-Bikes (E- moto?) besides the point. I purchased a 1985 K100RS from Facebook Market place for a fair price(Not running). Got some items with the bike Fuel tank, New fuel pump & filter kit, New Tires, Etc. But missing quite a bit! I am a auto Technician and know cars pretty well! Specially Euro/Import, so when I researched this bike I got very intrigued by its design. I took on the challenge and bought the bike not knowing a single thing about it or how it works. I have now got it running this past weekend with some simple parts and a little patience! This bike has been a blast to diagnose and I'm extremely excited to continue my project and share my experience. I still need some Key parts ( Fuel tank, Rear Set, Throttle, Brakes LOL )

I plan to do a lot of custom wiring and doing a harness tuck. So I wanna do a full write up with everything I used. I see a lot of the stuff in the electrical box doesn't need to be there and I haven't seen anyone build a custom fuse box. So be on the look out for that in the coming months!

Welcome Rawbee
with no prior knowledge of such things, the help from this Forum got me going on my old K, took 18 months but was a blast.
Hope you enjoy the build and get to have some fun.
