BMW K75 Custom

Larry Romestant of Specialks.net has begun customizing this beautiful (Bucket list) BMW K75 on my behalf. Larry rebuilds motorcycles to run better than new. All mechanical improvements, too many to list, have been completed. Most of the future upgrades will be improvements in handling and cosmetic. The bike is currently in perfect custom condition with a motor with 25k prior to original rebuild.

As it sits today

Beautiful machine. The modern paint and saddle (amongst others) really make thing look classy.

Gotta join in here. Here is my 1988 S that was repainted silver by PO. I sold it back in 2007 and like everyone else, wish I had it back. I don't think it has been loved since it left my stable.

How well did that Laminar Lip work for you? My K75F originally had a the small K100 fairing but there was too much chest blast on the freeway so I swapped in a C fairing instead.

Hey guys. Found this thread a couple of days ago, when I bought my very first BMW. It used to be a K100 lt, but the fairing is already removed. I'm planning to build some kind of a cafe racer and found a lot of animations here in this thread.
Plans are to fit a K1100 gear box with para lever, so I have a better feeling while driving and I can fit a 160 tire, shorten the back and fitting a small headlight. Maybe the headlight from the f800gs.

Im looking forward to this project, it's my very first “custom“ bike.

And I have a picture of the bike as it is atm.
