    trusty ol' 86 K100

    FBFC0B79-DCA5-4EB4-AA4D-4D5BAD59908A.jpegMy first dip into the BMW ocean, she's a smooth runner, hardly feel and engine vibes at all. Not going to win any races, but she is reliable. I have replaced a leaking brake cylinder and the original clutch cable (almost snapped while in downtown traffic!) but overall a well-mannered bike. Ive upgraded to an oilhead recently, so i'll pass her along to someone who most likely will turn her into a bobber. Windscreen is from Australia, new last year BMW 1986 K100.PNG

    Naked K100's are cool.

    I always thought BMW needed to have another model of this bike as a more "naked" version to show off the motor.

    Thanks for the additional pictures! That is an amazing customization and I think many people would not recognize it for what it was. Very nicely done!!

    How did you manage the spoked wheels?

    The wheels are from an R1150GSA. Installation on the front was pretty straight forward, although I did have to machine a spacer, change to different spec seals and I used the rotors from the K-bike. The rear required use of a GS caliper and rotor as well as some machining of the final drive housing to accept the GS style ABS sensor.

    New to me K75S

    Just got a 93 K75S with 90K on it. Did some searching and found a set of City Bags. Pretty happy with this one. It has some issues that I'm working out. The ignition switch is intermittent so I have started looking for a replacement.

    Welcome to the forum!
    I think there is a thread or two on those ignition switches around here.
    Enjoy.

    Yes, there is information on cleaning the ignition switch which in many cases solves the problem without the cost of a new switch. Also, congratulations on your new bike! It looks great!
