Have been watching various threads for a while and found heaps of huid stuff here, but haven’t introduced myself yet && not shown what I’m working on, it’s time to do so. 

Recently new to K bikes, but have had bikes for a long time, it all started when I sold my Honda CB1300 and purchased a rockster. Just loved the sound and feeling of the boxer engines. Still have that bike, but it’s back in NL. 
Been in oz for a while and decided life is too short to not have a bike and bought a bike that my dad started with; well similar. He had a k75 from memory, so looked around and found a great 93 k1100LT. Great bike, and to good to fiddle with. 

And I like fiddeling! 

So bought another bike, a 2009 R1200R, as my ‘daily’ ride. Again, boxers are great, and the bikes with the Telelever, I enjoy how they handle. 

Recently though I bought a very old rusted k100rs. It’s a 89, one of the first ones with ABS. Engine was running, the guy I bought it from out new injectors in it, but clutch cable was gonex so I could not test. 

Fast forward, I’ve now replaced front forks (as the original ones were rusted out) (thanks Thom!) 
Did all fluids, filters, spark plugs etc. Did the brakes, sorted out some electrical issues, and even took it for a little ride around the block (it’s not registered yet) - runs well; maybe a bit rich. 

Still need to find a set of mirrors, and some body panels, but getting there to get it registered and then pull it apart to completely overhaul/rebuild. 

Let me see if I can add a picture to this post, 

Great to be part of this forum,

Cheers from Perth !

That worked. Note the tank and rear wheel (with disk) borrowed from the k1100; as the ones for the k100 are in bad shape… Wink
