So what are you at now? And what are your plans? I am almost done with a restoration on an '83. :clap

This sounds like it's going to be a fun project and a fun bike.

What all do you plan on doing to it?

Lace up some 17s and put Avon Distanzias on the rimzzzz. Plus, get a pipe. Those little KE100s benefit big time form a pipe and jetting. I knew a couple guys who had them, and the one guy who had one that we put a pipe and jetted would RUN away from the stocker like the stocker was running out of gas.

n the now shot, is that a Honda tank on it?

I have a 1973 G5. Same bike basicly. I spent a lot of time searching for a pipe made to fit. The only company that I found for sure was Torque engineering, Whisperin Smith. Some are made to bolt on to a G5 or KE100. However there are other vintage expansion chambers that will work. Exit on the left. I picked up a nos one from ebay. Modesett is the brand name, I cut the header of the stocker and welded it on the Modesett. Also had to cut a frame tab for the tool box. I had already removed the box.

I thought I would add that there is a large weight savings. Much better sound and power. It looks great ( maybe pics later tonight). Well worth the time to track it down.

FMF use to make a fatty for it but I don't think they do anymore but one might find one for sale on Ebay or some thread.

Hookers
 
I almost forgot this. Hooker made a pipe for the ke100 G5.

he other thing is Kwak made a race bike in 100cc called the Greenstreak, if you can find parts for one of those buy the pipe. I think it'll fit and those greenstreaks were friggin fast for a 100. Like fast 125 fast. I toasted everyone racing a Greenstreak flattrack (all stock) in the 125 class for a season on one.

The Greenstreak was a 250cc. You are thinking of a G31M Centurian. Search Steve McQueen and ringadingdoo. 18hp .
