Not so much Garage Queen as not enough courage to be seen.

I'd love to know the history (out of idle curiosity alone). It looks as though the rear quarter panels come off to fit Motocases.

I fitted that cap, because I got tired of rocking the bike to squeeze the last bit of fuel into the tank under the lip of the original cap. Now I can fill it right to the top


With the price of gas I decided to make my tank smaller today ...





Should save a fortune ...

Should have found an old Honda Z50 tank instead.

Yup. Most likely an 83-85. The left peg plate is an early one that has larger two M8 bolts for mounting the exhaust instead of the hanger used on later bikes..

Had to contribute

Wow, I've just got the end of this thread, It's only taken a couple of weeks! Some really lovely examples which have given me lots of inspiration and provoked a lot of thought as to what direction to go with my K100.
It's an ex UK Police bike that has now done 140K and never let me down. I've done the last 40K. It's a daily ride in all weathers, I don't own a car.

The biggest job was a clutch replacement about 10K ago. It's one of a batch of bikes the police held back and registered later, mine is on a 92 plate but is 8valve with the 2 piece mudguard and brace and had the abs removed at the polices request I'm lead to believe. If anyone has any further information on this I'd be very interested to hear.
So a few pics of mine, only a few mods but I like it, no I love it!


This is Just finishing a 1000 mile weekend around Wales
