Bringing a brick back from death.
« on: August 21, 2018, 09:03:21 PM »
Hello Everyone,

My name is Ben and I work at a BMW Motorrad dealership in Concord, CA.  I have always been more of bobber, or chopper style guy, but one day found myself riding an F650GS single. Fast forward a couple of years later and here we are.  I recently acquired a crashed, and very neglected 84 K100RS with major front end damage, that hasn't ran (or been registered) since 1993.    With the help of a BMW master tech in my shop who specializes in k bikes and air-heads, my plan is to swap a K1100rs front end and rear wheel, eliminate as much wiring as possible, and rewire the bike with a MotoGadget unit.  I plan on using some bits and pieces from BSK Speedworks, and possibly a few small pieces from Unit Garage.

Also to add to the fun, I plan on riding this bike in the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride on Sept 30th, 2018 (38 days from now!). For more info on the DGR, or to make a donation (to the foundation, not to me) check out my profile here

Pics coming soon!
