Hello chaps!

Just picked up an 1100-K, Black and Silver, with under 15,386 original miles. That said, this bike has to be the dirtiest bike I've ever seen. It will spend the next few weeks on the lift having anything corroded replaced and anything leaking (none so far) fixed. Then it will get all fluids replaced and all electrical connectors cleaned and lubed. It's mostly all stock except period correct Yoshi. I will look to sell the Yoshi and try to find a good condition stock setup.

I've always wanted one of these bikes, and specifically a K model. Also, I wanted one I could work on to get it back to showroom condition.

I'm a sucker for the 80's bikes and now have a nice little collection:

'90 Yama FZR 1000 EXUP
'89 Kawa ZXR750 H1
'89 Kawa ZX10
'90 Honda CBR 1000F
'93 Honda CBR900R Fireblade
'84 Honda VF1000F
'89 Suzuki GSXR-1100

2013 Triumph Trophy SE
2017 KTM 1290 Adventure S

Looking forward to contributing to the forum and continuing to live my mid-life crisis.

Cheers,

Matt.

Hopefully a photo or too will be along soon ?
Hopefully the bike will be ridden too ? - the 1100K is refreshingly different to modern stuff - will need suspension over-haul and modern rubber, then you can properly enjoy the bike.

currently, the entire bodywork is off at the paint shop getting returned back to stock. will post a pic or two when the body is back. This bike will look like brand new when done, will be ridden and added to the collection in my office.

Just finished the mechanical refurb and now just waiting on the plastics.
