An enduring BMW K100

Okay so I finished the K75GS recently.

I started with this.....



And ended up with this...



I got a lot of P.M's etc asking about a build thread and various things I had done and for detailed pic's. I never really took any pic's as I went along. Didn't really think anyone would be overly interested.

So now I am going to attack a K100, trying to turn it into some sort of 1980's road endurance replica.
This will be a very slow project, but I thought I will try to document it here. It will be nothing too complicated, just basic machining/adapting

Don't expect too much, I am not a big forum poster.

I am quite unsure of how I am going to go about it, but I hope to muddle through it
It will most certainly not be one of today's trendy/hip/lifestyle bikes like a... "cafe racer" or "custom" etc.
I know for sure what it won't have though, it won't have...
Heat tape wrapped header pipes.
Flat/matt paint of any colour.
Oversize cross ply tyres.
USD's.
Rubber fork gaiters.
Computer cut CNC bits.
Lowered suspension.
Wavy disc's.
Or a flat (hard) brown seat.

Here is the start.... I have sold a lot of bits off it already




I have a lot of pic's of modified K's I have found here is a link to them....

Thats a great looking GS, I'll be keeping an eye on this next project, should be awesome.

And kudos for avoiding the usual hipster 'improvements'.

Like Ed and Te Hopo, I'll be watching too.

FWIW this is at the beach races here in Nelson (NZ), The bike went well in a staight line but had to take a waaaaaayyyyy wide line when cornering

I have scored a front end off a 1200 Bandit....


17 inch rim, 310mm disc's and 6 piston callipers. It wont make it go any faster but it will sure stop a lot quicker


I didn't make spacers up like on the K75GS. Machined up a complete new spindle, used the original BMW bearings. The new one on the left and the Bandit on the right..


Fitted to the frame, its almost exactly the same length and trail etc as the old K1002v front end.

WOW! This should be good. I love the endurance racer look.

The Brune K1's in the smugmug album are outstanding. If you even get close to that it will be great!

But of interest to the thread I came home with a box full of this stuff (excess baggage).
