The owner “Kirsten” of this 1990 BMW K75 already started with dismantling the bike. She already bought some parts, the seat and headlight and a speedo indicator. But when it came down to welding the frame she needed some help. One thing lead to another and eventually we did the entire build… Although it looks like a quite standard K75 a lot of modifications took place.
The frame was modified to fit the rear end she really liked. Take a look at how the frame is bend upwards compared to the original frame. We did not only weld on a simple hoop, the entire rear-end was made from scratch including the integrated taillight that is placed inside the frame. With a fresh new fine texture black powder coat this frame is better than ever!
We modified and placed an Aprilia Tuono front fork to give it a more sporty look, and a better handling! Combined with adapters for the massive 320mm brake discs, this Bike feels amazing! The brake calipers are powder coated a contrasting color to the blue/green paint job.
A custom front mudguard and some radiator covers complete the overall look. The electric components are all placed inside the rear frame, so we have a nice open space where normally the battery is. A custom license plate holder was made including indicators to keep a clean rear end. Everything on the bike is freshly powder coated or painted, new tires, new brakes, brake lines, complete serviced engine. This bike is ready for the road.
