I just noticed an add for a 16 Valve BMW K100 RS - it has been crash damaged but is only going for £399.00.

If you want to pick up a winter project or need parts and have some spare cash, hurry up you only have seven hours left.

PS. this is not my bike or add - so I can't help with any details of the advert.

Looks a good project. If it was near me I would be going for it.

Same here - looks like it was well maintained before the incident and it also has a lot of stainless fittings.

Or this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bmw-K100-/161856093122?hash=item25af5ffbc2

Okay, so it's only got half the number of valves of the other one Razz

Might be only half the number of valves but a lot of unobtanium on it. Looks pretty good to me if only I was next door.

So, the prospective new owner rejected it because it failed the MOT due to needing a rear tyre?

OK you Knowledgable lot,

Having resisted bidding for the Crashed RS at the start of this thread...sorely tempted, but damage to both sides and front mudguard made it look like the rider had gone straight into the back of something (rather than having a lie down) - concerned me that there might be hidden damage to the front forks, steering etc. Also if you do hit something that hard front on, I don't like to think how the rider ended up (not well, I suspect). Thought about putting a bid in anyway, but on reflection thought that, as I was not seriously out to buy, all I would do would be to ratchet up the price for some other bidder (went for £556)

Anyway, while looking through eBay, came across this 91 LT:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1991-BMW-K100-LT-BLUE-BLACK-/221906418931?hash=item33aaa73cf3:g:uCMAAOSwuTxV-rlk

Very tempted to add her to my stable (just getting greedy and/or saving good bikes from the cafe-chop-shop-sect but there seem to be a few oddities for an LT:


  • belly pan - I thought these were only fitted to RS's. Did late production LTs have this mod?
  • Heated grips - not fitted. Unusual for an LT, but possibly originals removed by PO.
  • Panniers - look bigger than the ones on my LTs, or is it a trick of the light?
  • Exhaust has obviously been replaced with non original


Apart from that, she looks in pretty good nick and might be worth a punt. Do I need 3 LTs(4 inc donor) or do I need to see the doKtor about my Kpox?

Any thoughts?

Hi Paul

I think the sticker on the back box says it all Wink .

I discovered having 4 K's was too much but 3 is the perfect amount.

One to Ride, One to work on and then a spare just in case.

Simon,

Good point, very well made. It is very tempting...and not a bad price (unless there is a hidden reserve).

Dai,

No...would have been happy to pay the starting price and put a couple of bids in, but price started sneaking up and I had the feeling of being played. Don't know where it would have ended up if I had kept going...and I don't do the bidding war thing. Besides which, I didn't really need another LT!

Yeah, I know...when did need ever have anything to do with it. 

Used to have a golden rule...just apply two simple questions for buying toys (cars, bikes, boats...):

  • Q1: Do I really need it?
  • Q2: Do I really want it?

If I could answer no to Q1 and yes to Q2, then that gave the default setting of "I gotta have it!"

I guess 17 years of marriage de-calibrated my senses...but no excuses now!

Like when I bought the Z1300 Kawasaki people would say why do you need a 1300cc six cylinder motorbike. Ny answer was Need Need I have never claimed I needed it its a new toy.
Then there were the ones that said where could you possibly use 130hp and 145mph, my answer "Any suburban street".
They would leave me alone then. Laughing
