From a distance, it looks like you've got a Harris Tweed thing going on those pipes.  :2thumbup:

Och aye.

MOT tomorrow, time to bolt back on the legal yellow number-plate.

The Angry Mule passed with flying colors again, zero advisorys. 3409 miles covered.

Pulled all 22 crank and cam casing screws, 3 stage polished the corrosion off them then treated them to 3 coats of clear coat.

Thereís a massive motorcycle gathering next weekend and Iím going to enter the Brick in the show.

HI Dave
I have just finished reading your entire thread. Very inspirational and detailed. I have an 85 K100RT in very good condition that I am going to turn into a scrambler type bike. Your details included in your thread about the build has given me the motivation that it is possible to make a great bike out of the old brick.

Thanks for writing the tread and including all the pictures. Your bike looks fantastic.

Cheers

Hi Rick,

Thatís quite possibly the most positive feedback Iíve ever had on my build on this platform, thanks very much. Iím glad itís been inspirational.

Good luck with your build, if you have the time itís worth documenting it. Give me a shout if I can help you out with anything.

Cheers

Dave

A local photographer and motorcycle enthusiast spotted my moto at a recent bike event and asked if he could shoot it, of course he could! These are a few previews he has sent through.
