    If Lee does not have what you need, check with me also. I buy a few K75 OEM parts I fear may not be available in the future.

    Also check the Motobrick.com site.

    Thanks K75s,
    The left ABS support bracket is broken. (34 52 1458015 - SUPPORT LEFT) I should be able to use the right bracket (as template) to fabricate a new left bracket. Or, wait for an ABS unit (with pieces and parts) to become available on EBay

    Update - Lee found one hangin' around. My lucky day!

    The K1 had a jaw dropping look back in 1990. It still has it today.

    If I only had space for another bike , a K1 would be it.

    I always thought the front fender in the pictures of K1s was ugly, but almost all pictures of K1s are from the side. When I finally saw one in person and looked at that fender the way the wind saw it, I finally got it.

    Back when the bike was launched, it got a lot of hype in the press. There were quite a few colorful packets with pictures on the bike. It stated that the fender was more than a fender; it was a fairing fender. I'll try to find one of those packets in my endless pile of BMW stuff and post a pic of the use of the fairing fender words in the brouchere.

    One of the few straight on photos of a K1 that I have ever seen. You can see how fully faired the bike is despite the rider poking his head up to be sure his face is in the picture.

    The simple elegance of the early K100 can be seen in your bike. Outstanding. Like this look so much, I'm converting my K100RT to a K100; your bike inspires me. Clean and simple.

    At speeds above triple digits the K1 seems to part the air like a knife - no buffeting, no turbulence, and very solid on the road. Tuck in tight and you can feel the wind just flow around you, much like I imagine that water moves around a shark. I don't think BMW wasted their time in the wind tunnel designing the K1.

    bmw confused....they should have called all the K's after 2005 "S" bikes like the S1000. they all have wedge engines, not bricks.

    so really you have an S1300S.....:-)

    What to do with a free '94 K 1100LT

    It was complete but very rough when it was given to me, a fuel pump kit and a fresh battery it started right up and ran fine so I got an idea. First thing I did was get rid of the rubber mounted semi "ape hangers" and had a friend machine some solid plugs to get rid of the very scary rubber bushings. Had a repop "90 S" fairing sitting around waiting for a purpose so I made a new instrument mount / upper fairing bracket and used a set of spare /6 head light ears with a spare RT head light assembly to get the project started. Fun Fun Fun and so far pretty cheap.

    Teutonic Plague

    My sickness is with the '85 K100RS. And being new to the forum, I need to share my madness. Lee's got it right...."Long may they fly".
    Here's a couple of examples of my 'other women' as my pillion says. And she understands!

    Both have been gone through completely except for an engine tear-down. Each has 4 pages of a legal pad with the service/mods. One is Lexus gold pearl and the other Corvette pewter. Why....because I could, and these bikes needed a little updating. They are IMHO one of the best looking of the early bricks.
