    Funny, though I did attempt to post a photo. I could not get it to load. Maybe it exceeds the size?

    What a Beautiful bike!!

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



    Thanks, October 1986 is the correct date of manufacture. I guess I can't believe it was that long ago.

    I believe that is a Parabellum.

    The number on your bike (616) is the paint SCHEME #. The actual paint CODE for paint SCHEME #616 is Paint code #204.

    I might have a line on a touch up tube. PM me with your e-mail or phone#.

    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.
    Just happened to read the couple last pages of this Original Litter thread---guess I always assumed it was only about '86 K75s---so I got out my records and lo and behold, my '94 Dakar Yellow K75S is #154483! Suppose it was also born that same April along with the others.

    Mine won't be Dakar Yellow much longer though; the tank and rear rack are now polished bare aluminum while the rest of the body panels will be sanded and prepped for a totally different color of PPG Deltron soon.

    PS: Hi Beverly; Congratulations on picking up my bike's cousin at the National. You may remember contacting me a while back about a possible bags trade---hope you found some others that were the right color (or perhaps you'll get your bags painted to match?). Anyway, I do hope you managed to get your saddlebags off; once you attain the knack for doing so it's a whole lot easier thereafter.

    Best regards,
    ---Jeff

    Beautiful bike

    We finally have another one of the blue branch of the family checking in.

    3117 and 3118 '92Ss born July of 1991 are owned by Greg Feeler and K75Swim. (see page 1)

    That color is Royal Blue Metallic. The color was used only on the 1992 models of the S.

    The paint scheme code is 680 (on the tag under the seat). But I don't know the Glasurit paint Code #.

    Any idea how I would go about getting some touch up paint? She's acquired a few nicks here and there that need to be touched up. Any thoughts I figure the dealer would know but would probably not be the cheapest method.

    The touch up paint is NLA (no longer available) from BMW for our bikes. The availability dried up 2-3 years ago. The best you can hope for is a dealer with some left over old stock or someone with an old tube.

    I believe this is your color:

    BMW Part # 51910144544 Metallic Touch Up Pencil Set King Blue (270) NA


    BMW called Royal Blue Metallic (scheme code 680) King Blue Metallic (scheme code 680) in some markets. Also called Koenigsblau in German.

    The Glasurit (original paint manufacturer for BMW, now a division of BASF) paint code for these colors is 270. You might be able to get something through a Glasurit paint distributor (look on the internet).
