Paul, I have spent so much time on your blog the last couple years, I feel as though I have done holiday at the Papa J Hotel. Fantastic work sir!
I’ve just found your website. Congrats for your work this is very nice. It convinced me to choose the K100 for a cafe racer base model.
Thanks for all your details and photos !
“This is an aggressive machine that sits between being a street fighter and a café racer, and touches on both modern and classic.”
“overall the bike is an exercise in clean, simple aesthetics, and it certainly looks at home on The Bike Shed pages. Maybe this is what “new wave” is all about?”
“This time Paul has a bike that looks just as good as ‘Mach I’ but now has performance to match.”
“Despite the myriad issues involved, the end results couldn’t look prettier.”
“The finished bike has an impressive side-profile, it looks almost like an official BMW concept motorcycle designed to invoke the spirit of the classic K100 – an idea that BMW would be wise to wholeheartedly embrace.”
“The Hornet is a masterpiece of customising. He has taken the K back to its vital elements with an attention to detail that is stunning.”
