BMW K-Series description

VIDEO IS UPLOADING RIGHT NOW WILL BE ON HERE WITHIN A FEW HOURS


I have a 1996 BMW K1100RS that has been transformed into a cafe racer. This bike is not to be confused with the honda and kawasaki cafe racers you will see out there, it is in its whole own class. Everywhere you ride it people will be staring and asking questions. 


Clean and Clear Nevada title in Hand signed and ready to go with two keys for the new owner, Bike is ready to ride home RIGHT NOW.





Have factory BMW Motorcycle battery charger, as well as a bunch of paperwork that will also go to the new owner.


This bike will get an impressive reaction out of most anyone and would do good in a motorcycle show, or just Ride EVERY DAY like it should be, and wants to be.,


Price is VERY VERY fair for such a nice cafe racer. Starting the auction at 5,900 I think a VERY Fair buy it now would be 7,200 if you have something a little lower in mind feel free to message me. You WILL NOT find a nicer bike for this price. I will take off 400$ if the buyer does not want the ohlins shock.


I reserve the right to end the auction at anytime as the bike is for sale locally as well.


The paint is Sparkling Blue Metallic with Ivory white down the middle, with white pinstriping to set the colors apart, all covered in 6 coats of High Gloss clear coat. Paint is rock solid and looks AMAZING in the sun, hard to capture it in the pictures but it really pops. 


Bike comes from the factory with a Beast of an 1100cc engine, that will last for 300k miles plus. This bike is VERY fresh.


This bike HAULS, if you look at one from the factory and then look at this one you will see that lots of things have been removed, I am looking in to finding a place to get it weighed, but I can tell you there is a LOT of factory weight that has been cut off, and a noticeable increase in acceleration. It is really one of the funnest bikes I have ever been on. 


Some of the features included are as follows:


Ohlins Rear Shock, The previous owner paid something like 1,500$ for this shock alone and it has less than 5k miles on it. It is the kind with the resevoir + a remote easy change knob.(price can be lowered if this is replaced with a stock shock)


Marzochii front forks


 Brembo Disk brakes up front, and one in rear, the bike will stop on a dime.


ABS system works flawlessly. (very nice to have on a bike)


Pretty New front and rear tires.


Cafe Style tail sectioned modeled specifically for this bike, almost looks like it should have came like this from the factory, with upholstered seat pad so you butt doesn't go numb.


Clip on handlebars / Hybrid aluminum and rubber grips feel nice on the hands


Tear drop style tail light.


A simple magnetic type speedo 


7' round headlight, reproduction for a 1937 Ford (high beam and low beam work great)


Moved Keyed igntion to left side of gas tank under the front part of the tank.


Aluminum Swingarm license plate mount.


Moved gas gauge to Right side of Tank with custom aluminum mount.


Also I can Add four stubby blinkers and a horn for an extra 60$ if the buyer wants them. (bike is still wired for them just didn't install them)



Please if you are going to message me to ask how this bike was built, I cannot go through and tell everyone that wants to know this. There are SOO many steps, and different parts used that I cannot begin to explain the process, of course you want your stock k1100 to look like this, but in reality it takes a lot more work, time, and know now then you probably realize if you are emaling me on ebay, not trying to be mean, but it is reality, thanks!


Local buyers are most definitely encouraged to come see and test ride the bike in person as that is the only true way you will understand what I am talking about here. The bike has class, and performance not to mention reliability above 99% of the cafe racers you see out there, don't let the low price fool you. If you are not local I can take pictures of whatever you would like to see. These HDR shots are simply just to showcase the form and lines of the bike really, to get in depth photos watch the video.


I will help ship in whatever way I can. Uship is awesome and highly recommended, They have a free price estimator on their website that gives you instant price estimates. I can store the bike for a few weeks so you will be able to get the lowest price possible if wanted. 


Im almost sure this is the nicest Turn Key Cafe Racer available for this price. Ready to ride home today. Please see pictures and video, and ask any questions.

Kevin Ash, one year on

Wed, 08 Jan 2014

I’ve lost dozens of friends in bike racing over the years, and while each death was a shock and incredibly sad, I’ve always had some kind of internal coping mechanism that allowed me to carry on relatively unaffected.  Maybe it’s because I was always extremely passionate and committed when taking part in my dangerous sport so was also prepared to pay the ultimate price should things go wrong.  Rightly or wrongly I’ve taken comfort from the fact that these unfortunate racers have checked out while doing something they love.   I’ve also lost a few journalist friends in bike accidents over the years but for some reason these have hit me harder.  The worst and possibly as it is the most recent is Kevin Ash who was killed last January while on a BMW launch in South Africa.  Starting in 2001, over a period of ten years, I was in Kevin’s company on countless new bike launches in pretty much every corner of the world.  At times he was cocky and occasionally irritating but always entertaining with a wicked sense of humour.  He was many things but no one can deny he was a brilliant journalist and his technical knowledge was second to none.  I always appreciated his complete enthusiasm to all things biking as he would ride through any weather on a daily basis to jobs or airports and seemed to always be tinkering with winter projects (mainly Ducatis) at home.  I also admired how much work he got through as he had columns in more than one weekly publication plus all his launch and web work. He was a competent safe rider who was certainly quick enough to evaluate any new bike thrown his way.  Kevin also drove a Porsche but then none of us are perfect!   I looked to Kevin as a wise Owl so not long after I started working with TWO/ Visordown, I asked him on an R1 launch in Australia he thought the motorcycle industry was currently in a good place.  His reply was, ‘we’ve just been flown here business class, been taken by speed boat to our five star hotel under Sydney Harbour Bridge, Yamaha have wined and dined us and furnished us with expensive gifts each day, what do you think Niall?  How times have changed.  On the subject on air travel he once told me, ‘when travelling business or first class it’s not about the pampering, comfy beds or fine dining, the important part is looking smug as you walk straight past all the people lining up at the cattle class check in! On more than one occasion I had food or drink spurt out when Kevin would deliver unexpected one line funnies at the dinner table.
