K100RS 8V cafe racer finished
« on: October 18, 2018, 02:02:51 PM »
after 8 months of working non stop my K100RS is finished. Kinda happy with the end result. The sound of the GP exhaust is killer.

when I turn of the power to the bike this is what you see for 20 seconds. Nice little extra

rear wheel is from a K1200RS. And the rear tire is a pirelli diablo rosso 2 (160/70 17) The swingarm needed some tweeking in order to get the wheel as close as possible to the center. Didn't get there all the way but close enough.

Good Looking Build  :clap: I like the rear hugger and number plate bracket. I was looking for a hugger but didn't find one to suit the mono shock

the rear hugger is from a ducati SS750 supersport. After some adjusting and a custom bracket it fits perfectly. I made the plate bracket myselve and it works really well.

Nice build, very clean look. I have wanted to put the k1200 wheel on my k100 but did not like the idea of a 20mm offset. How close is yours to central and what did you do to the swing arm to make it fit?.

I machined 3mm off the faceplate of the rim and grinded off a part of the inner edge of the swingarm. I ended up with a 8 mm offset. I also needed to make some room for the brake calliper because it came to close to the rim. It all worked out but I think that is the fun in cafe racer builds, finding solutions.
