    K75S Original Litter

    How many more of the original litter are still kicking? Anyone??

    All US spec K75Ss were frame (VIN) numbered consecutively, starting with the last six #s of 150001.

    The original litter from May of 1986 was 150001 thru 150325.

    The last of the line was 154600 that was born in September 1994


    Paul Glaves has 0019 (it figures he would have the oldest one)
    36532 has 0024
    Cafecubano has 0067
    I have 0081
    brhartw has 0106
    DrPaul has 0141 (barnfind with 8k on the clock)
    mgalie has 0161
    ghostridery2k has 0166
    dabberAT10 has 0225
    35634 has 0231
    Tomsljr has 0232
    Ortme has 0249

    Still titled in my name - being kept/ridden by our son-in-law in Iowa. I seem to have found several places to stash bikes. Another K75 resides in Kansas - occasionally ridden by our son.

    My '88 S is 151561. I still have it.

    My wife had two '87 K75S's, but the only VIN I have is 150859.

    Original Litter! That makes five still alive.

    It was born during the first month of US spec production: May 1986!

    Yup - mine is Konenigsblau as well. Must have been blue bike day on the assembly line. I do get a lot of comments on the color.

    I bought mine new in May of 1989 as a leftover, about 20 minutes after I had my first job offer out of college.

    Breyfogle:

    Yours is an early 1988 model. 1484 born July 1987

    I have two of its sisters from that litter!! 275 US spec K75Ss were built that month.

    My wifes bike is 1373 born July 1987.

    My spare bike is 1272 Frame tag says July 1987 but chart says June 1987. Maybe it was a long labor.

    Jon:

    1561 born September 1987 '88 Model

    My disease has recently progressed to the "stash-a-bike" phase. My Triumph now resides in Utah with my MC mechanic son. A quick $49 plane ride away during the heat of summer.


    A 1999 Ducati Monster 900 resides in it's former place in the garage.

    My K75RT resides with a new owner in CA, who I hope is enjoying the heck out of it.
