    I'm getting back on two wheels after a couple of years without a bike. I was on a weekend trip to NoVA to visit a couple of friends, and found what looks to be a pretty good 1987 K75C.

    My buddy is going to be storing it for me, and probably wrenching on it a bit, before I'll be able to get it home to Atlanta...

    Thanks!

    Nice color!

    I think it looks a bit better without the chin fairing:

    Those k75s are nice.
    I wish there were more of them around for sale. I wouldn't mind having one for when I travel alone.

    The MetPol Special Escort Group (SEG) had these modified K75s before they went to R1100RSP. There was one K100 too but I think they opted for the 75 as it was better suited to city escort duties.

    Before the K they had good old twin-shock R80s with leg shields. All were polished to within an inch of their lives. Shares in metal polish manufacturers fell through the floor when they got the Ks. :D

    Super reliable bike; i ride 45-140 miles a day. So far my only complaint is the current seat height, i have an aftermarket Fox twin clicker air shock that the previous owner installed that i still haven't adjusted just right. But hey, maybe i'm just short. :bmwrider

    An interesting fairing. Hannigan maybe??? And the rear drive is saying S model as the C or standard had a rear drum brake. It looks good in green.
