    Just got on the post, been taking to bfontaine about the k75 seat. You might want to try sitting on a factory K75 low seat. There are quite a few of them around, had one until I changed it over to a standard. It might work for you. The seat rides right on the frame rails.

    That's all I have access to. Nothing for 86-87 or 93-95.

    Year/Vin #

    Can anyone tell me what vin #'s belong to which year of K75S. I have been trying to create an Excel spreadsheet with this info.

    Thanks, Bev

    From the info I have , it's hard to tell because it seems that BMW didn't consistently change over to the new model production on the same month every year. The info only matches serial # with production date, not model year.

    Were tere any 1989 K75S made? It doesn't look like many production dates around that time?

    Thanks, Bev

    At this years NorCal 49er Rally there were at least 8 K75Ss.

    Unfortunately we were only able to get 4 of them together at any one time (for the Concours) as half of them were always out riding at any given time either on the poker run or running up to Tahoe for lunch or just enjoying all the great roads in the Gold Country area of the Sierras.

    Two more Ss were represented there in two awesome custom bikes from Special K's out of Northridge Ca. One was using an '87S frame that he had bought from New Jersey and the other one had started as a salvaged S that he had to replace the frame on. You can eventually check out his work at: http://specialks.net/ once he finishes his website.

    In all, we had 19 early K-bikes in the bike show, the most of any of the 11 classes. That's a switch!

    Huh, looks like my '87 falls in the original US litter.

    Chalk up number 150286 as a Red k75s in here Boston MA.

    Story goes, first owner purchased it in Wisconsin then I purchased it 5 years ago from the second owner in Brooklyn, NY.
