I don't know the bike and as far as I can tell there are no members there however the chassis number says 5/87 and the plate says 10/88 and that is a much bigger gap than the usual of around 3 months for AU bikes. The plate looks genuine but does not explain the gap.
Around that time BMW ag gave quite a few K100RS to the Queensland TAFE and they let the apprentices lose on them but AFAIK they were not to be registered and many found their way to wreckers yards.

My 75C by VIN is an 85 but plated in Aus in 87. My guess is that it sat on the showroom floor for a while as they were quite expensive in their day compared to their contemporaries.  It was first registered to an AJ in Victoria.

I certainly can't dispute your guess, as I have no knowledge of what would have happened, but wouldn't it have to have the Aus plate before it went onto the showroom floor? If so, even harder to understand.

1 So are they able to be registered ??  I have no idea but I presume so.
2 How do I find out ?? go visit a Queensland transport office. Just give them the serial number and ask if it has been registered previously.
One tactic that was used was to hold off plating till they went out to the dealer so as to avoid paying the wholesale sales tax.
I inquired about a RS that the Gympie TAFE had and found out that there would be sales tax owing and it would be plated as a 2005 model not an 86.

That would explain the discrepancy. Plated when it went from distributor to dealer. Thanks, Rick.
