    An '87 K75s was my introduction to BMW back in 1990, and I've still got it, and never gonna sell it. I've also got a GSA, which I love too. I like the combo you've got going on there!

    Have some pity for us old guys with fading eyesight. Please, please, please get the photos onto a hosting site so that they appear on these pages as a decent size. As things stand all that is happening is memories of going into the bookstore many, many years ago and seeing "those" magazines wrapped in plastic, all imagination and no detail!

    That's a GS1150 rear wheel with 10mm machined off hub side, rim is as per standard but we also machined 3mm off the disc mounts to get clearance. Using a standard 1150 calipar we now need a bespoke bracket made to carry it. It was very touch and go with tolorences but end result is very compact and neat...

    PS; i'll sort pic situ....:wink::wink:

    Hi all on this thread, not sure if this is the one I was always posting on but anyhow, things have moved on slowly and I've had it spinning wheels with several test miles done and vey happy with weight/ balance of the bike, currently working on the electrics and smaller fabrication jobs that seem to take forever to finalise...!! iphone 903.JPG

    Oz - specifically Wollongong , if I'm home
    Some inspiration for you.
    K75 , laid down single rear shock , DRz 400 font end, and other stuff. Built by one of the denizens from in here , DIYtestpert (Martin) , and ridden on the Aus Scrapheap Adventure ride this year.

    [​IMG]
    He won the award for best engineered bike , big achievment since a lot of the bikes on this charity ride are heavily modded.

    Yip, great example and seen it before, this type of build inspired me in the first place some years back but I have kind of let things get outta control I feel and applied the Madmax touch with my build..!! Thanks for posting.......

    I know a guy that rode a mostly stock K75 around the world. Used a car shock when his broke in Africa and he couldn't find a new one. Very cool build. How much weight have you added at this point? That fairing seems to be heavy.
