Oh you lucky, lucky, lucky bastard . When I was a child I could only dream of living so close to the breakers . Sixteen miles of slogging through seven foot snow drifts there and back . Uphill both ways in bare feet with nowt but old newspapers for clothing . Luxury I tell you .
AND you get holidays !!! ... seven days a week I work getting up half an hour before I go to bed just to put some crumbs on the table . Luxury I tell you .

You might be over-thinking it, Planktonnn.

K-bikes swingarm pivots are the same width as airhead swingarm pivots (as far as I know).

ASS-uming the schwingers on both bikes mount roughly centred in the frame, I'd guess it's not a stretch to ASS-ume the wheels would wind up roughly centred in the frames, too.

Anyone actually know?

Well the breakers yard is primarily cars so it's of little use generally, though of course they may be able to help with the injectors & more precisely the missing washer/collar. Being close to such facilities is one of the very few benefits of living in the middle of an industrial estate.

Well, in the absence of anything else to do I was just wandering thru possibilities & potential issues really. It's part of my semi Holmesian 'method' The tyre/ire on the K/R bike pictured seems wider that the 120 I can fit on my Airhead swing arm, which leaves just a tiny bit of clearance at the edge of the tread, depending on the make/profile design. I seem to recall DBD had a tire/ire fitted that rubbed very slightly on the inside of the swing arm until it adjusted itself to fit via wear? Without looking, I wonder if there may be more pressing issues mating the drive shaft out of the R s/arm with the K bevel in? If I had both to hand I'd have a look see.

Pictured - As I say, I prefer the high bars I run on mine, and with all respect to whoever they are the fairing doesn't work for me, but I like what they've done with the tail piece. I prefer what I was planning with a hacked up K tank but that part seems to have been lost in the shed move, and it may prove easier to get hold of a K tail piece to play with than another tank to cut up. On the other hand I may just run it bare as I did previously. It's all moot anyhoo as bankruptcy looms...

Thumbs down Finished

Goodbye to the whole idea of recommissioning the Me-MW K75. As with so many ideas I have it's stupid & completely impossible Having searched thru the remains of what came out of my shed I find I'm missing some pretty hefty parts, including the radiator, generator, coils, entire clutch, etc. I just don't have the resources to replace any of this, even at bargain prices, so I really need to face facts and give up.



In fact I'll just give up altogether...

I guess the only thing to do is sit tight and wait until the required parts turn up for peanuts, or some kind & worthy soul sees fit to donate. I really have zero budget as I'm living on about a tenner a fortnight at the moment, have no disposable assets, and even the lowest & most teeny* tiny eBay prices are beyond me right now. Finding that more was missing than I thought hit me quite hard as I've so little to do I was sort of relying on the K recommissioning to keep me occupied and give some kind of focus to my days. Health & circumstance leave me with little purpose right now, and work is proving very hard to come by.


* The inclusion of this word alone, even in this context, will get me put on a list somewhere

Wanted - K75 writeoff

I was standing in the queue for reincarnation and I noticed my shoe lace was undone, so I knelt down to retie it and the person behind me pushed past, and out he popped as Prince Albert of Monaco.

Oh, the vagaries of birth...
