saying hello from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My name is Justin and I'm a new brick owner. I've always wanted to rebuild a motorcycle as a project with my son. I recently purchased a 1994 K75S with only 9k miles that was mid-restoration/modification. The owner just found other hobbies and gave up on the project, so I got the bike and a few boxes of parts, a motogadget m-unit blue, tenet box, and lots of other assorted goodies as part of the purchase.

Now for the fun part. I'm in way over my head and don't know much about motorcycles other than how to ride one. I look forward to using this forum to get ideas and inspiration as I work to get the bike running again!

Welcome!  I hope your bike hasn't been hacked up too much.  The K75S is probably the nicest looking model in the classic brick line, and with only 9,000 miles it hasn't even started to being broken in.  It would be a great bike to restore to original.

Thanks! I’m going for a cross between a scrambler and cafe. Prior owner started on a cafe mod and sold off most of the original plastics and parts.

Thank you. This looks like exactly what I need.

I’m currently stripping things down, cleaning them and repainting as I go. Frame comes off next and then it’s back to the build up and *gasp* electrical with the m.unit blue
