    From the same guy who has the Ural project posted in Old School, here is his latest finished K75GS project.

    Actually the first pic is the only one that doesn't look like is was built in front of someone's keyboard. I alway's look for the blurring around the edges of the motor and forks. It's a dead giveaway in the first pic in this thread. The only way I would be convinced otherwise is to see several more pics from different angles.....without blurred lines. But that's just my opinion.....prove me wrong...please!

    nice, can I get some info on this project?
    parts involved: front end? how long? what springs? fairing?
    who did the tank? looks like 1+ gal over stock
    how much was it?

    got '87 Ks here and this would be a neat face-lift for it.

    If you look at the picture of the Ural project you can see the tank being built. Though I have never asked, I suspect the tank has been modified by the builder.

    The exhaust is home made and so I will figure that the tank has been modified by the owner.

    Please forgive my K75 ignorance. Is that the stock rear suspension configuration with the one sided mono-shock?

    I have uploaded more pictures of this bike. I spoke to him and he has modified the tank himself. The volume is now 30 litres.

    Yo Indian, I just now realized where I had seen you. I followed your R90S resto at the boxerworks site some time ago as I was doing an R100S. Job well done. This one looks interesting as well. Nice to know it's real.

    Hey, great job!:clap I had an 87 K75 and it was a reliable and smooth ride. Never thought of it as a "GS" type, but with that smooth 3-cylinder engine and the mods you've done it should be pretty good. How about a "blow-by blow" description - with lots of pics - of exactly what you did , peices used, mods, etc?

    Shoot, I may look for a beat K75 to try building my own "beast"! Cool:wink:

    That bike makes me with I never parted with my K75S. It was a sweet machine. I loved that motor.
