    One of the last

    Not original litter but the other end of the spectrum: 154547 - only 53 more after it.

    Is this in the last litter?

    1995 Arctic Silver

    Just picked it up today

    My k75s has 0225. So, I guess it's one of these originals.

    I would STILL insist that ALL original litter K75S's are by default red.
    Second litter all black
    Third litter Colombia Silver (my fave)

    Gilly
    87 K75S, bought new, now sold
    07 K1200GT Bought new, now traded in

    I got mine!

    I picked up my 1994 Dakar Yellow K75S at the National...154504 born April, 1994.

    While there I met the 2nd owner who noticed it due to the color!!

    Having trouble putting saddlebags on and off! Any hints?

    Bev,

    Welcome to the family . You're going to really enjoy that bike. Two of your litter mates have already checked in:

    Quickdraw from Stockton, California has 154455

    Doglips from Ironwood , Michigan has 154467

    Both are Dakar Yellow and born April 1994

    That litter (April 1994) had 100 bikes. I believe they were all Dakar Yellow.

    The Dakar Yellow branch of the family is starting to really make their presence known.



    As far as the bags go:

    1. Undo latch that holds bag to bike.
    2. Pull out bottom of bag until latch JUST clears the square hole it was in.
    3. Slide bag towards rear of bike until it stops (about 1").
    4. Lift bag off (will take some wiggling and tongue twisting).

    To install reverse above

    Step 3 is the part that is not intuitive and frustrates novices.

    I bought mine new in April 87 at Razee Cycles in Rhode Island. It's black # 150596, built in October 96.

    I sold it in July 2002 with 45K miles on it. I made a deal with the buyer that if he ever decided to sell it, he would offer it to me first. Well 7 years later, almost to the day, he contacted me that he wanted to sell it. I bought it back from him and rode it
    350 miles home this past Saturday. It still runs like a Swiss Watch, but is need of some routine maintenance and a cosmetic makeover. It now has 57K miles on it.

    I've been a BMW MOA member over 20 years now, but this is my first time posting on the forum.

    Here is a picture taken when the bike was new, notice that the pipes hadn't even turned blue yet!

    That would be an extremely rare K75S if it was built in '96!! Of course you mean 1986.

    What a Beautiful bike!!

    Welcome back to the family. No need telling you what great bikes these are.

    150772 is a 1987 model U.S. Spec. K75S born February 1987. Why did you think '86?

    What color? My guess would be Columbia Silver.

    Welcome!!

    The title says '86 and it is Columbia Blue. She's a sweet thang except for those pulsating front brakes. I really love riding her. A nice ride!!!

    Well the title is wrong. ALL U.S. spec K75Ss with the silver drivetrain were sold as 1987 models even mine that was built in May of 1986.

    There were NO 1986 U.S. Spec K75Ss.

    Your bike wasn't even built until February 1987, two months before the end of 1987 model production.

    Someone in your DMV did a typo.

    The Columbia SILVER is a bluish silver. They did not make a BLUE in 1987. The paint scheme number (on the 1"x2" tag) on the top of the rear body section under your seat should be 616.

    See posts #63-66 in this thread. Those are pictures of 150825 (Gilly's old bike) built in March of 1987 (the month after yours). That is the color that they were building during that time frame. It should be the same color as your bike. Columbia Silver #616.


    Post pictures, either here or at the thread at the top that says "Post a picture of your K-bike".

    My 1992 K75S is a Louisiana bike that I just bought from the second owner. 20833 miles at this time. This one is 153492. The paint is Metallic Blk. I've wanted a K bike for 25 years. I was visiting London in late fall of 1984, and one evening I strolled past a BMW bike showroom and I first laid eyes on a spotlit Flying Brick. I was awestruck at the sensational lines of the K bike. Now I've made one mine.
