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.  :)

got all 3 bikes out in the last few days ,


  the little Yam and CB200 found the wind a little to much,would only pull about in 4th into the breeze,but both suffered in the gusts ,

but went very well downwind !!!


  the 500 went out,that ignores the wind,but does strengthen your arms and shoulders !!!.

  went for the 50 mile run for a burger lunch,Ocean Cafe,Abergavenny

  WoW ,it felt good !!!

 hopefully the roads will dry,and the temperature will rise ,Happy days to come .

I've just been out on the VT.   Replaced the front brake pads so I rode about 10 miles just to bed them in (my excuse).  Couldn't take the 400 because several important bolts are being re zinked and the exhaust clamps are being rechromed.
