I know there's a lot of folks that believe the K bikes shouldn't be altered.  I get that.  But, it was a hack job when I bought it, I wanted a Covid project, and let's face it.... K bikes look pretty cool in Cafe form.

So... start to finish.... about 15 months.  While I don't post here very often, I assure you..... this forum has been invaluable.  Thanks for your help!

1990 K100
2007 Suzuki GSX-R front struts
GSX-R front brakes and fender
GSX-R front wheel
Metzeler Racetec RR tires
Cognito Moto fork conversion (K100 to GSX-R)
New rear sets (6 inch back, 3 inch up)
Akropovich muffler
Custom exhaust
Motogadget mini digital gauge
Motogadget motosign LEDs (ign, low fuel, brights, L turn, R turn)
Lots of other fun cafe bits and pieces.

Thanks for all the help I've received here!

Oh, man, that Indian would make a great chopper!  Sky pipes, 15" springer, ape hangers, peanut tank and a sissy bar.  Yeah, Baby!!!

Probably.... LOL.

Thats my comfortable, reliable, long-range tool for touring Europe.

I've got 12 days planned on that thing in June...... through at least 5 Balkan countries.

I've done a few mods to it (exhaust, leather bits, white walls, etc).... but obviously nothing major... but I had intended to keep it for purpose.

Lol.... I've been married to the same woman for 17 years.  Pretty lucky she supports my obsessions.

But.... it already makes a statement.  Have you seen how many Indian dealers there are in Europe??  I can count on one hand, how many times I've seen a person riding an Indian (any model) in Europe.... and I've lived here 3.5 years now..... and traveled to nearly have the countries in Europe.

It makes a statement Smile

It's definitely one of the better custom jobs I've seen of a K. A lot of thought has been put into it. that's obvious.

Thanks!

I'm curious how you knew they were USD?  wouldn't GSX-r folks be the same everywhere?

Thanks.  I'm still not 100% happy with it..... but at least at this point I can ride it.  

It is incredibly uncomfortable.... but lots of fun Smile
