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...
thats a nice one
Very nice K! Mine is an 87 as well, same color even...
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.
Smoothest ride of any bike I have ever ridden.
Want to trade for a ride?
Going to be nice and warm in the northeast tomorrow. Its time to take the bike out of the basement and go for a spin tomorrow. Its been a week that's just to long..
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.
That's pretty funky how they adapted the RT lower to the tank.
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.
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.
Looks like it's a Parabellum Scout.
The /2 standards (91+) had a rear disc.
Websters has nothin on Duck when it comes to Ks
Local dealer CL find, sadly missed labeled,
At first I was like :huh Extra gauge, goofy paint, really bad graphics, price...
Then I was like :huh Whoa, turbo!
