I have admired Ray Peake's work ever since I saw an article some years ago showcasing his R100GS-based hybrid complete with turbo, Link computer, injection and full K100RS bodywork. Just brilliant.

The K-bike front end ... or is that a 90's R bike fender?
Turbo
Frame cross brace
Not the original sidestand
Oil cooler
Not the original horns
Not the original exhaust
an 80's transmission
K-Bags
Rear disc brake (not original for R90S)
Mirrors ...

but .. I like it! Good for this guy to bring the bike into modern (ish) function. Good show!

All that and spoked wheels? Seems a bit odd to me but each to their own.

Hello Adventurers, in Canada we did not get this model. Is this a R1200C? I've read about it, but I always imagined it would be a little more refined. Oh well, BMW knows best!
