BMW K100 cafe bike
I had this crazy idea to strip down a K100 to its essentials.  It was worked on over a number of years and finally finished at the end
of 2014.  The thing about cafe style motorcycle models is that they are simpler to build because a number of parts are not used
(turn signals, rear body parts, passenger footpegs and seat, etc.)

Base Kit(s):   Tamiya (kit number 14036)

Finished:        Dec 2014

Modifications/Additions:
- removed rear subframe
- extended swing arm
- built rear single shock immediately behind engine, with Meng bolt head details
- drilled out brake disks
- replaced headlight with parts box item
- removed rear sections of footpeg mounts
- shortened muffler and replaced with styrene cylinder
- seat from Fujimi Honda Cub, mounted on a piece of bent sprue
- scratchbuilt air cleaner
- Alclad II aluminum, duraluminum and dark aluminum on engine and wheels
- Tamiya Mica Silver on frame, yellow on tank
