Saw this on one of my routine searches:

https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/mcy/d/1990-bmw-1/6525326892.html

For someone who might be interested.  Was there something special about the K1's besides paint?

York PA, 1989, BMWMOA rally (over 9,000 attendees that year), hot Saturday night, crowded stands on either side of the dirt oval, waiting impatiently for the giveaways and awards. In roll a coupla new-looking bikes side-by-side in red/mustard and blue/mustard. Shocking! WTF is this!? The K1.

I got the chance to ride one a year later at the Chesapeake Bay rally. In the end the moto press wondered what it was for and it didn't have the 1/4 mile time of then current Japanese missiles. But I'll never forget it.

According to the body condition, the claimed mileage is difficult to believe.
Or it's a very unskilled user who sells it.
K1 parts are very difficult to find, news or used. The missing rear lid specially...
The front mudguard seems to be out of order also, with usual cracks at the top, near the fork tube.

That K1 has obviously had a hard life.  Anyone seriously lusting after that model would probably be better off pursuing this one on fleabay:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/1991-BMW-K-Series/302662681708?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649
The abused one could easily be a money pit.
