    I can't wait to get mine on the road. Slow process.
    Anyone know where I can get one of those top boxes?

    Probably not a K but every time I see a K and once I own one, this will be the only song in my head. I'll probably go for that riding gear too.

    I'm currently a student at WYOTECH in Daytona Beach. WYOTECH is a motorcycle tech school. I have graduated from Asian (Hon, Yam, Suz, Kaw). Im currrently in Euro Speciality (KTM,DUC,TRI,BMW). First day I walk into lab, a K75C Bobber was on the first lift, I passed it by with only a thought of thats a cool bike. I went straight for the BMW1000RR, after spending some quality time with the 1000, I couldn't get over the look and unique look of the K75C. After 1 day of with the K75C I started looking for 1 to buy. I found it ! I would like to present my new/old K75C. Awesome bike with only.......did I say WITH ONLY 10, 431 miles........HUH WOW.......Price Tag.....1,500 Hope everyone will enjoy the transformation.

    Hello, I recently purchased this, 1991, 92.000 kilometers, in mint condition :

    After a lot of interwebbing I found this to be the ultimate K inspiration and I'm gonna build something similar out of the purple stocker, so now I'm looking for a few more pic's of this machine , especially the rear end :

    How long is his ban?

    Bought a tatty K1100LT a couple of weeks back as a winter project. So far:

    It's going to be a naked so I've dubbed it a K1100R.

    I wasn't even looking when this one dropped into my lap for a few quid. Sorry, I doubt that's what you wanted to hear. :D

    Nothing very exciting. RS wheels so that I can run better rubber and basically it will be as much like a BMW as I can make it, eg I'll be using a BMW round headlamp and K75/K100 cowl. Found a cheap (broken one):

    Fixed it and painted it ready:

    I suppose it should be a K1100C really. :wink:

    I do actually.

    Gel seat/tail/rack/top box and the bags with rails.

    All the body work for a 100LT as well.

    Very nice. The swept up tails just don't do it for me though.

    That just what I need for my project. The RT handle bars are not correct for a Naked, but their hard to find.

    I didn't realize they made these in color. My K75c is blue. Might look kinda weird. Thanks, though.
