I've built several BMW cafe bikes - mostly on /5's, but the R100 is easy to modify into a proper cafe-style. Feel free contact me about sources on parts - I've got lots of them.

I've also got a large selection of period aftermarket tanks for BMW cafe bikes - can send pics if you'd like.

I have a 74 90/6 that is ripped apart for mods so no pics right now-sorry!
my mods are a Mac 2 into 1 pipe- better sound and I noticed an increase in revability and power, BMW 1/4 fairing, S bars, upgraded front rotor and stainless line, and braced swingarm. Haven't seen anyone with the brace in the pics but it made the bike wallow less in the sweepers. I would add the frame braces and a front fork brace- makes a big difference in the handling.
I'm going the other way with my /6- a solo seat-old harly springer and wide bars, maybe even floorboards. I may put the 1/4 fairing back on, don't know. It's gonna be my wierd cruiser- got enough bikes that go fast

How about some info. on those chrome signals? Where did you get them? Do they fit right onto our airheads? /6s? And how about that Corbin seat? Any mods needed for that? Thanks. Great bike.

The alloy turn signals are made by K&B? Lot's of sources. The rears are monted in holes in the subframe, the fronts on shortened stock mounts.
The Corbin drops right on, as the subframe is from a SWB /5. If you don't use longer shocks it will handle "funny".
When you order from Corbin, you can get the seat anyway you want, but you must be insistent and get transfered from the regular order folks. I wanted no pleats or piping and the online and regular customer service people said it was "mandatory". I told them it was not "mandatory" that I buy the seat...no pleats, no piping, thank you.
BTW, This thing can be changed back to stock appearance in about twenty minutes.

I need to go thru it and redo all motor seals gaskets and rubber, and in short strip all apart and rebuild for kicks... re looking at bikes for ideas

so now i have 1999 R1100S, 1985 K100RS, 1988 FrankenR100, 1974 G4Trail Boss 100 Kawasaki...

anyone want to buy the 1985 K100RS?

It started life as an R90S.

Uuunnhhh.... I am confused..... are you serious about starting life as a 90S?

I guess I could see the motor and maybe the main frame/backbone, but then.... front end? monolever, looks like a paralever? modified (make that deleted) subframe?

Yeah, it started life as a 90S, but it's been extensively modified at this point, if you couldn't tell.

Check out the team incomplete web site - the whole story is there.
