First bike, BMW K75S 1987
« on: July 02, 2018, 09:03:25 AM »
Hi there,

I'm Joel from the netherlands.
Just got my very first motorcycle, a '87 K75  with 83.000 in the meter.



It's got a an electric problem with the speedo and gear indicator, and a leaky front spring.     but the engine and driveshaft are good, and the price was so nice i couldnt let is pass.

Now i have some plans for my bike, one being a fork swap to an USD fork.     the problem is that there is very little info in regards to K75 fork swaps except for ofcourse the 'Fork it!'(enough for the K100 though)
I have my eye on a Suzuki gsxr 1100 front fork.

Does anyone have experience with it?   i would love to get some details on how it was done and with what parts.

Hopefully i'll be able to share the progress on my bike here.    looking forward to starting on it

Welcome, Joel. Post a photo of your bike in this thread then start a thread in the Custom Motobrick section when something is happening with it.
