    Basic question '93 K75T

    Going to look at a K75 tomorrow and have been reading up.

    One thing I have not seen is where to find the serial number? Can someone please tell me the location? Bike is a 93 K75T.

    Thanks

    Zimm,

    Welcome to the forums and the MOA!

    Please read: http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=46057 - it's worth doing this since there are lots of K models that fall under this forum, and they do have different VIN tags/stampings in different spots. Please do this on future posts to the tech forums!

    Thanks for your cooperation!

    I thought the K75T was only made in 1986 and 1987.

    Here's a picture of our 1987 K75T's back in 1988.
    The area around the headlight was different and I think the shield was standard. I don't remember the other differences.

    Officially the T model was an '86 and '87 offering. It came with the double bucket touring seat, the International Windshield, and a drum brake like the K75C. In early '86 the bags were standard - later an option if I recall correctly.

    Lots of later low seat models (like the one pictured) we fitted with the International Windshield and called T models by some folks - I have a '94 set up this way - but it is actually a K75/3 not a K75T.

    I thought they only made K75 and K75/2's. I am new to all of this K bike stuff. Did I miss something?
