Hi everyone! I'm a newbie but found your forum and am still looking for my K100. I have found one locally and am working with the seller. It's a 1985 and would love to hear any tips on what to look for when purchasing one. It has 11K miles and appears to be very clean. I'm supposed to look at it in the next couple of days and any advice for during my visit would be appreciated.

That sounds a nice one. At 11k miles and if in very good condition I would be buying if the price was right.

BUT you do need to remember that rubber in various forms used in seals, O rings etc hardens with age especially through lack of use and so those components will most likely need replacing and there are a lot of them on a K. If you can diy stuff its not that difficult to do.

The link in the previous post is a good place to start.

You've come to the right place everyone here is very helpful. 1985 was a great year for the brick, ask questions if you have them, you'll always get good advice (and a little humor).
