    1987 K75S in Greendale WI Color?

    The guy selling this bike listed it as "mint green" and in another post "Turquoise" does anyone one know of a color that would fit either of these descriptions. It appears to be a very light green color but I don't see any references to a green being offered by BMW. It is definitely original.
    Thanks

    Can you post a picture?

    Here's a picture of a 87 K75C in a pale green.
    I don't remember the name of the color.

    That color is Columbia Silver. I am SURE about this. It does have some greenish blue to it.

    The paint scheme number on the black 1" x 2" sticker on the left side of the cowl under the seat near the seat latch hole should be 204 or could be 562 or 616.


    Any other questions about this bike should be posted in the "Flying Brick" section of this forum. This section is about new "members" not about bikes. If you buy the bike, we'll see you over there.
