That is about the most perfect, and gorgeous, Cafe BMW I have seen... nicely done in a classic way




The front end is 'K' sport Showa forks with 'K' discs. Uses a conventional GS hub with different spacers for the discs which are plugged and redrilled for 5 hole spacing, different spacers for the axle, and machined calipers to clear the spokes. It's an 18" front wheel on this occasion, the mudguard is lowered as much as the solid fork brace will allow without butchering it! (It's not mine, that is to follow but is under construction!)

[QUOTE=bpeckm;16993683]Nice...I had not noticed the ignition switch... looks like the front indicators are sticking out of the headlight bucket. CLEAN, elegant. Noice!

Better have some thick gloves on when you grab your keys after a ride on a warm summer day.

What a beautiful bike. Must be so damned fast, and that Kerker pipe. So classic. I bet it sounds mean too. Did you ever sell the Reflex???

Love the asymetrical headlight treatment on that K100.

This is my 77 GS750 I am building it right now. I just rode it down from western North Carolina to Leeds Alabama to Barber for the vintage days. this past weekend. Hopefully I can keep moving forward with it, and come up with a good set up with the shocks and mirrors I picked up at the swap meet.

Okay, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who was distracted by the front fender. Other than that it's super-sweet!
