A guy from NJ called me a few years ago. Had just purchased a K75S from a dealer with only 67 miles on it! The dealer had had it since new and never sold it. Just kept it in a back room and looted misc parts from it when needed.

Seems odd to have examples of Ks that have 100K, 200k+ miles of journey on them and others that barely made it out of the shop because they didn't sell

I've just got my parts back from the painter, looks so sharp! (I am going for pure and original)

I am still waiting for the logo on the back and new original rack! :-)

I believe that I'd seen this bike when it was for sale at the dealer about a year ago- minty...nice color combo.

I put 1500 miles on mine riding it up the coast from SoCal to Seattle last Friday and Saturday. Then I hopped on my K1100LT and went for a ride today. Even though my K1100LT is totally dialed in and a great bike in its own right it made me realize just how awesome the smoothness of the K75 motor is.

Larry was Raving about your LT. It's time to pull my SpecialK out and get the juices flowing again. It's been a very long Winter for the two of us. She's been staring me down lately... It's time.

Yes it is.. It was posted way earlier and corrected. Who knows why it got reversed but it seems that way in the web pix that was the source.

That was the only one I have seen. It was original posted up here

http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...657248&page=44

and then included some shots of a similar bike but lacked the cross under/over exhaust.

I did a google search k100rs cafe racer images and it gave a lot of nice things. Many of those have been shown here but there are some other ones as well.

google search
