FLYING BRICK KAFE RACER

Postby ZORK WA » Tue Apr 28, 2015 12:08 am

Been helping a fellow ZedHead mod his 1993 Italian import K100RS (which was unsellable) into a Kafe Racer on the cheap, PO had done the hard work ($$$$) with muti adjustable handling bars and high tech speedo/tacho multi function gismo, gutted shortned pong box.

We cut up and made new seat/tail light, relocated battery/overflow bottle etc..

Fork gaitors and set knob lee's, seat infill next.

Todays flogout was just one grub shop stop after another.

In 1985 l bought a new K100RT, seen here in Augusta, south of WA, so it's been 28 years since l've ridden a Flying Brick, but it all came back, super light with power too match (for it's day).

Interesting bike...I like the front disc pattern :D
Think it needs some kind of fairing though, you know, just to cover it all up a bit. :think:

That sure is one lean , mean , kraut machine.


Old mate has a 750 3-cylinder BMW K series. It's usually referred to as ' the little brick '.
Except when it suffers from electrical gremlins from time to time , then it's often called ' the little prick '.


But back to a full brick , here is one I spotted at Bicheno Bike Museum in Taswegia recently.

Them South Islanders prefer theirs to have more 'agricultural' capabilities.

Anything I say , may or may not have any truth or relevance , this is the internet after all.

Arhh, so that disc pattern is stock then :roll:

i don't think this is a Tassie bike Z...more likely a foreign import.
Tassie bikes have special handgrips to accommodate the lack of an opposable thumb. :lol:

The old drip tray to catch the water/oil pump seal failure trick, all Pricks, err Bricks do that except the latter ones which have modified shaft and seal.
