Motobrickers,


P.S. I have not found an Airhead forum as good as this one. If there's a good one out there, let me know.

I'm certain we have more than a fair share of Airhead,s here already  :hehehe

Here's where I'm at with the R65 for those interested. The tank isn't completely fitted yet. Waiting on a bracket so I can lift the rear up a little.

Bro, what front fender is that? 


Also I'd redo the aluminum fork "plaques" by using a black base and engrave the lettering in silver.  Idk that leather is a great material choice that close to pavement and puddles.


Liking it so far....I too have the 2 project k75 cafe bike....been a little less add tho😁

The front fender on the K75 is the original fender trimmed down to the shape that I like. I then had it hydrographic dipped in a carbon fiber pattern. It's the poor man carbon fiber-ish fender I suppose.


Thanks for the suggestion on the fork plagues.


Start a build thread on your K75 projects. The community would like to see what you're doing to them.

I finally re-did the rear end, the K75 that is. Much cleaner now and match the lines of the seat pan. Will make a bracket to relocate the license plate to lower shock bolt. Thanks to RBM's help, I was able to sort out the LED conversion issue.

Both bikes look great. But concerning the K75.....what model Fox shock is that and is it compatible with a K100? Thanks, RV

Thanks RV. Below is the link to the shock. I worked with both ATVGalaxy and Fox technical support to make sure the spring rating is compatible with the K75. The length, which is 14" eye-eye should be compatible with both the K75 and K100. You just have to make sure they build it with a spring that can support the weight range of the K100. Let me know if this isn't clear. This is one of the cheapest option that I've found for an adjustable shock with a piggy back reservoir.

Love the build (both, really). Would you share the LED tail light mod trick(s)? Sorting that out on my custom at the moment.


Seriously, that brushed/painted tank is rad.

Quality work, ducky!  Great attention to details.  Gotta have at least one K to zip around town and country.  Wish I had room for one more.  Being much lighter it must handle nice.  What's good, there's so many of these bikes for sale, well within anyone's budget.

Thank you sir! Yes, it's much lighter and more agile now. However, it's still quite a heavy bike compared to modern ones. The K-bike is becoming a popular platform for conversions. Perhaps because it's still affordable compared to Airheads.
