I have been offered a 1984 K100RT. It's a pretty clean bike, but it has not been run in nearly a year. You know, the "it was running when it was parked" story. They are asking $800 for it. I have looked it over pretty closely. One of the things I have found is that the clutch lever can't be squeezed. It is stuck.
I think this is an indication that the splines are rusted or otherwise seized. The owner does not know if the shaft splines have ever been lubed in the bike's 80K career.
I am an avid do-it-your-selfer. Most maintenance is no problem for me. I have never lubed the shaft splines on a BMW. How hard is the task?
Do I really want this bike? It's not like I don't have others to ride.
Is $800 a good price?
