The origins of the seat are less questionable than the stilts it sits on. It just seems perverse to maintain the original seat height when using the minimum amount of padding like that.

That is a bm' part. Had one on my k100 standard when I bought it. Does a surprisingly good job of deflecting air off your chest.

So the usual suspects for bm' parts.

There's an after-market, taller version on UK ebay. Pricey though:

If you can't find one, it appears this would be pretty simple to fabricate out of metal and then paint , say flat black. It isn't going to be used to look through anyway. It doesn't look to have a lot of complicated curved angles either. Let us see what you work out.

I figured you would have the answer

My first thought was that it may be a modified K75s shield or C shield but in comparison it may not work but it may be worth a try....?

That's really quite nice.

I'd love to see the rear-end in better detail. How has he managed to keep the non-paralever swingarm and fitted that wheel?

There is a lot going on with that bike. Would be nice to see a write up on the build.

So I just Craigslisted a 1986 K75, and I'm going to pick it up tomorrow. Any thing I should look for in particular?
According to the seller, her father was the owner and was trying to sell it, knowing he was on short time, but didn't get the chance. Now she just wants it gone. She doesn't know much about it, so I doubt I'll get maintenance records. She says the bike sat for the last year as her father was too weak to ride. The bike has very low miles, so I expect to have to change all fluids, grease what needs grease, and probably a new pair of tires, but I'd rather avoid any final drive surprises or other expensive items.
Any help is appreciated.

Firstly, well done. Excellent choice.

Don't worry too much about the final drive, they are less prone to failures than the later bikes and if there is an issue it will just be long-term wear of the bearing - easily fixed and cheaply too.

Apart from the obvious, whip the alternator out (again very simple) and check/replace the cush-drive rubbers. For some reason they are more prone to failure on the triples than the four-cylinder K-Series.

For inspection or automatic replacement?
