Touratech sells them among others. They are padded at the attachment point and will allow some flex.

That's a good price as well. Usually $125-$150 for a Touratech.

Look at the next photo (above). Only the K100RS 16V and the 8V K100RS SE had a brace on the forks or a two-piece front mudguard. Okay, it may be an RS converted to naked 100 but then it wouldn't be an "original" bike either.

OEM Front fender is different between earlier 85-86 K100 vs 87-onward, not aftermarket.

Yup. The green one has the 86+ peg plates too so it's probably an 87-90 model year K100.

Spoke with Larry yesterday. The push to complete is on. Midweek with minimal details outstanding (ie. seat material...). He'll have time to work the small items while waiting for shipping pickup.
