Not sure this is a genuine SE as it looks to be repainted which is odd because of low Ks. If you look at the blue lines on the right side cover it is very poorly done and am I right thinking that one line should be about 2/3 the width of the other.

The blue on the fairing appears to be at the wrong angle too. I think I agree with you - this one's a tart.

Yeah I reckon it is either a fake or repainted very badly but with the silver engine I call fake. I have been chating with him about it but I think I will tell him.

Looks real enough to me. Looks like it's got the pinstripes on the wheels too which the later SEs didn't have.

Actually it's a Brit expression. A 'tart' (when not refering to an item of food) is a coarse expression originally meaning that an older lady has used cosmetics to make herself look something other than she really is, but it's obvious that the attempt has failed. The meaning has mutated over the years but that's the context I was using it in. Be careful if using the expression in conversation because it is also taken to mean a young lady of supposedly easy virtue.

Mutton dressed as lamb.

I don't think it's an SE either. Mostly because the engine isn't black, but, as mentioned in previous posts, there are other points. The seat should be blue, but people change seats. Also, the pin stripe on the front fairing isn't correct: on the top edge about where your knee would be there should be a break in the pin strip with "K 100 RS". However, on my bike, which is a proper SE, the front fairing was repainted by the previous owner and didn't do the pin stripe correctly either.

I didn't notice in the advertisement that he was purporting it to be an SE.

DOH I missed that and according to Real OEM its a 9/1987 so it is a fake, not that he actually says it is an SE but he says rare. I would have thought it would have a 17 digit VIN by 1987.

Different countries have different standards for VINs. (Or at least some did in the past.) I know someone who imported an 86 RS from Japan and the Canadian government would not accept the Japanese VIN. He had to pony up some cash to pay the Canadian government to make him a new VIN with a little plate he had to put on the frame with his new VIN.

I agree that the engine covers otter be black.

He had $8990 when he first put it up. The Ks are so low that all the rubber bits would be shagged.
