    Today I bought a 1988 Marakesh Red K75S - 151302

    It no longer lives in north-eastern Oklahoma. Now it lives in Deep East Texas.

    Rich,

    Welcome to the Brickyard!


    151302 1988 Marakesh Red K75S Born July 1987



    There is a sticker on the left frame tube just below the battery cover. It will have the VIN and the Born On Date in hard to read punched out dot numbers. The BOD is in the upper right of that sticker.

    My 3 Marakesh Red '88Ss were born in June and July of '87 also. I'll have to check how close to yours they are. I only remember the exact # of my '87S.

    Curious about my former K75s

    Hi All,
    Really neat to find this thread that brings back memories of mine.

    Anyone seen # 150085?
    When I (foolishly) traded it in at Foothills of Denver, it had an R100 RS fairing and was solid white. As I recall, it had north of 112k on the odo.

    I still wonder what became of her.....

    Psychedelic!

    A very appropriately named color.


    Born January 1994 Was that originally one of the Yellow ones?

    I have no idea what the original color was. Is there any way to tell (short of scraping off a layer of paint?) And, yes, I did forget to mention that it's a '94 model. Only 12,585 miles on the odometer as of this morning.
    I also have an '03 K1200GT, but the K75S is my choice as a daily rider for errands and pleasure because it's so nimble and fun to ride.
