    Barn Find 1990 K75S

    Just bought this 1990 K75s with...wait for it...000841 miles on the odo. Was in storage for more than 2 decades. After much TLC (and new parts) at the hands of Cuznbob at Cuznbob's Hill Country Motorcycles in Austin, TX, she is running nearly like new. Super fun.

    New updates:
    - Michelin Pilot Activ Tires
    - Fuel filter, pump, lines
    - Oil filter
    - Brake master cylinder
    - Stainless Spiegler brake lines
    - Brake switch
    - Combi switch
    - Battery
    - Fork lube/oils
    - Spline lube
    - Headlight bulb (H7 LED)
    - Bar risers

    I was never a big K fan but, that is a beautiful bike.
    I suppose now you will tell us you got it for $900?
    Best of luck with it.

    Try $750.
    Thanks. Years ago I had an R1100RT and loved it. Big for around-town riding. This seems to be a nice middle-of-the-roader. Easy around town, in traffic but also comfortable for touring. Easy shifting and a wide range on the tach. You can flog it or rev it and the little triple seems to absorb it all without hesitation.

    $750! You are killing me. I just paid MUCH more than that for a really nice '94
