1 knew someone would find something wrong! Its the badges that came with the my original basket case K2 Julie - I think I have 2 x the same badges so wrong on one side. Forks are wrong too (my 2012 ignorance when I bought bike- swapped proper K2 fork bottoms with Mick thinking 75 model should have k5 fork bottoms - know now that as its a UK K2, should have earlier bottoms on) and later cyl head on (for same reason - have earlier K2 head that I may put back on at some time)
When I retire and have more time, I will get round to changing it - maybe!


The cylinder head is down to what year your UK K2 is ?
It's 75 Graham but had earlier head in basket case when I got it

Hi Kev, it's called 'Planet Blue' - not sure if K6 was Planet Blue but the experts will be along to confirm or correct me!

This is our UK K6, original paint, Candy Sapphire Blue.
The USA K6 is Flake Sapphire Blue.
Planet Blue was on the UK K2.

Busy sunny pic - I've been several times to my usual local bikes cafes during the week (taken by a mate in a car) and there were lots of bikes and people there, probably the privilege of age and retirement; the latter may be forced on me before I would like, but I could live with it.  :)
Bikes: 1970 US CB750 K1 and a UK 1976 Z900 A4
Cars:  1958 Triumph TR3A and a 1972 TR6
