Fabulous, magnificent K75S!
Good God, that's a gorgeous Black Beemer if there ever was one!
Bet it will be extremely painful to see it gone despite the gobs of well-deserved cash you should get for it.
Have you posted it on IBMWR Marketplace as well as ADVRider and the MOA FleaMarkets? I bet it will be snapped up in a flash...
I offer my sincere condolences for your loss soon to ensue.:brow
Best of luck to you with the sale and all and thanks for posting such otherwise inspiring Beemerphotos.:)
Details are listed in the Flea Market...

Here are a few photos of a very 'Special K' I built for my wife for her first bike. The bike began life as an 87 K75S. The front end is lowered internally 1.5 inches, the rear is lowered 1 inch and the seat is cut down an inch and also narrowed.
(The blue K75 is also an 87C, with mostly cosmetic updates)
The drivetrain uses a 96 K1100LT transmission, with 3.00:1 GS paralever final ratio. The wheels are K1100RS, 160/60-18 rear and 120/90-17 front. Front calipers are 2 piston brembo on 305mm discs, with a 20mm master cylinder. All brake lines are braided SS.
Headlight is from a 65' R60/2 and the ears from a 67 R69/S. Speedo is VDO digital.
The bike is very smooth and comfortable, and handling is neutral and stable.
I am offering this model for sale, please visit my website to see some of my other work. I will customize or restore anything. Please contact me at [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email].

Polished chrome or aluminum?
I could write a multi-thousand-word essay on why I like these bikes so much but I will refrain from doing so in this photo-thread.:laugh
Am wondering about the wheels, though. They appear to be polished chrome---am I correct in assuming this? The head and valve covers seem to shine more than the polished aluminum ones I've seen before, too.
The cream-colored bike is the most magnificent blending of R and K styles that could ever be imagined!
You deserve an "Oscar" by all means---for "Best Beemers in a Non-Traditional Restoration Role.":whistle
