Whats it all about ?????

Over 30 years of buying, breaking, building, cutting, welding, riding and selling greasy old mo'sickles. Bare bones bikes from the middle of nowhere!

The elephant (brick) in the room

I picked up a 1987 BMW K100LT last year as part of a deal, as you do! It was an real ugly piece of 1980's excess that i'm sure made it very popular with the Gold Wing and Pan European fans out there..
After one short ride I knew it would have to either go or get some serious modification.. the gold fairing and luggage was all pretty tired and the big screen up front was all cracks and going opaque in  places. As the bike was at may workplace i decided that lunch break to start to strip it down and see what could be done to lighten the load...

13 lunch breaks later it was back on the road, and I had a big pile of plastic lying in the yard!
