Hello to all K Bike enthusiasts.
New to this Forum although I have had a number of Airheads, Oil Heads, and K bikes.
I currently have a 1985 K75C that could be termed a barn find as it has spent the majority of its life in dry storage. 
My second bike is a 1992 K75 RT that has been passed through a few owners and needs worn out and missing parts replaced to put it back on the road.
My third bike is a 1988 K75S that I am doing a complete frame up rebuild on. The last owner had supposedly hit a Kangaroo causing damage to the front wheel, fairing parts and the engine area.The bike looked as though it had been left out in the open in a very dusty area.Engine,wheels gearbox and most exposed parts were covered in dirt or surface rust.It looked like the bike as it was would only be usable for parts and the price was ok. It has now become a project to get it back on the road.
I look forward to communicating with people who also have an interest in BMW K bikes.  ;BMW;

Greetings from the Northern realms. K75's are the pick of the litter in my opinion.
Regards Martin.

Welcome from across the Ditch. Love restorations! Just spent 18 months restoring a K1. Far too much money, and I'm scared to add up the hours, but she looks a peach! The satisfaction of turning a barn find (as mine pretty much was) into a beautiful piece of K art is priceless.

Welcome, 

Good to see someone else keeping these things on the road, even if it is only a 75 Razz
