BMW K75gsa swingarm extension

Hello Gents,
Is there anyone out there in the states that is also building an adventure bike out of a K75 and may need to do the same mod as myself..?? I had five made from T6 alloy CNC style and hard anodised black. I can get the drive shafts extended too and also titanium studs to finish off...!!!

I've had a couple of K75s, but none that looked like that!

I'm in too. The K75 is hands down the smoothest engine I've ever encountered, great project. Open an account with photo bucket or shutterbug or any of the cloud picture sites and you can post as many pics as you like of better quality, depending of course on the pic files you upload. Looking forward to this thread. Cheers.

I'm in too. One of my current bikes is an '88 K75, soon to be 27 yrs. old. Very smooth engine. (The other one is a 2014 Vstrom DL1000) There are some things the K still does better.

I agree, and think it's the best motor BMW ever made.
