CAme across this today.
Needs a lot of TLC.
It is a K75 but I wonder which model as I was unable to get close enough to read it's VIN

Probably a -86 -87 K75S with a Sprint fairing and a -83 -85 K100 footrest bridge
and footrests at RHS.

That's interesting Inge.
I think it is an 88, at least that's what the logbook says.
Apparently the owner got fed up replacing the screen glass after the second one was robbed.
I couldn't figure what version it was from photos online as it looked like an S but the screen was different.
The front indicators are from a Yamaha or some such
And the casings being metallic rather than black is different also I thought.

Oh what to do, what to do :-)

A -88 would have had the rear brake fluid reservoir behind the battery cover.

1. A earlier model that got it's first licence plate in -88.
2. The K100 footrest bridge have been mounted complete with master cylinder
and brake fluid reservoir.

Is that a drum brake on the back? If so then it would be a 75C originally, although it appears to be painted black.

It would also explain the ugly after market fairing which hasthe 75Cround headlight.

Not a drum brake as it has the wrong brake lever and a M/C resevoir.
I would hazard a guess and say it's a bitsa.

City Spares = breakers in Dublin....it's a bitsa! Sprint fairing missing glass (could be fun finding a replacemetn but would be worth it). Would be a cheap starter for a project.
