    Hello gents,
    I am mega excited over the arrival of the wheels for my K75 build so I've decided to start a thread separate to others I've posted up on with pics of my bike. It is still in dry build mode but starting to take shape.. Have a butchers....!!!

    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.:D

    >>The K75 is hands down the smoothest engine I've ever encountered<<

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

    "Dry Breaks"? By that do you mean quick disconnect fuel lines? Kind of difficult to make out on your pictures. You must be a machinist or welder by trade?
