Congratulations on rescuing that K75, you did an incredible job! That was a heck of a lot of work and it is refreshing to see such good taste exhibited!
Few people make such an effort to save a bike from CAFE DOOM - the genocide of 1980-90s motorcycling.

I don't know about that my friend. I think it shows the beauty of the Brick in a manner that says " How do you like me now? " Sometimes, less is more.

If they had your sense of styling, they would have covered it in Rhino Liner.

Yep, that's exactly what some do. Or, if your like Larry Romestant, you reinvent the darn thing and call it a café which is what he's working on right now for a buyer. Either way, nice to see these machines being enjoyed.

Early on I think. Seems to be an RS not an RT. The RT then had a windshield that was sleek and relatively low coming almost back to the rider. The cowl below the engine was an add on then. The rear passenger hand rest is in the seat. I don't know my models as well as many but I am thinking the first version of the bike, mid 80s.

85 K100RS (or possibly 83 or 84 if it's a Euro bike) with a Laminar Lip.

While I was in da hood, I stopped by to pay Larry a visit yesterday afternoon and check out the current projects under development at the Special K SKunKwerKs.

The first project is his next custom customer build. He's really going all out on this one: frame, drive train, suspension, wheels, tank, tail cowl, etc... EVERYthing on this bike is going to be custom. However, the security guards confiscated my camera and, under penalty of death, Larry swore me to secrecy so you'll have to wait until he's ready to reveal it in a month or so when he's finished with it.

His other project is a very clean 11K 91 K100RS4V that he's going to nakedize and use as his own rider.


Notice the lack of Line-X (not Rhino Liner) on my 93 LT.

Couldn`t he get rid of the filter box & add some pods to it. Might clean up the right side a little.
