How many bikes are in that garage?
New to MOA and 1st post. I bought this bike in October from a Harley owner that had the bike for 3 years. He put 200 miles on bike. Bike had a Kentucky salvage title. Had been down on left side. Missing crash bar, missing radio and 1 speaker, both glove box lids, left knee guard, gouged left mirror, left hard bag, numerous cracks in left upper and lower fairing. Blown fork seal on 1st ride. He had instaled a new fuel pump and filter. Bike has a Bill Mayer seat that looks new, new Dunlop Elite IIs. 23,000 miles on clock (24,000 now). The engine and drive components looked new. No coolant or oil leaks.
The bike was an original light gold color. Made the bike look like an old mans bike.
Gave him $1800 I figured I could have a nice touring bike for $2500.
New gel battery, starter relay, spark plugs, fork seals, fluid change (brake, coolant, final drive, transmisson, oil and filter, new glove box lids, Ebay knee guard, steering bearing grease packed. Had to fix 2 pinhole fuel leaks in tank, and fill a small dent where fairing hit the tank. Welded heat shield nuts to muffler. Removed the radio antenna, repaired mirror, fairing, and slick finished the hardbags. They turned out better than I expected. Color is Toyota Dark Grey Flint. Don't know to the penney but around $2400 in her. All my work. Runs and drive perfect. The picture is the side that was wrecked.

Damage was minor, a wire in the mirror hosuing that had to be soldered, and the rivets on the side case broke and had to be replaced. Also, that bike it heavy.
Riding in the winter is fun. Not for everyone, to be sure, but still fun. I am certainly not planning on stopping any time soon.
Hey All, I figured I would finally join the fray after many years of owning K bikes. The one pictured here is actually an 87 K75S that I custom fitted K1100RS fairing package onto. Paint is dark indigo metalic. this bike has never missed a beat and was my first K bike. I dont have any pics of its big brother, a 96 K1100RS that I picked up at the dealer for $1000 because it had been dropped...on the free way....and actually did not need much...WHAT A TANK! This one pictured is for sale in OR at a friends house. I hate to see it go, but I have more bikes than room at the moment.
The Mrs on her K75/3-A thats's what it says on the title. Model year 1995, last of it's kind. It's been a great motorcycle. We've added some touring accessories over the years. Russell seat, factory touring shield, heated grips, GS hand guards, Progressive shocks and springs, Motolights. It's by far the easiest machine in the garage to take care of.
Somewhere in North Carolina....
Love this bike!
I made it to my first nationally rally. 1200 miles what a trip
My baby and I can't keep my hands off 'er.
