This man is the one listing all the cool bits (shim kit, diagnostic set) on ebay so I sent him a message. Figured it can't hurt.
Conversation so far.

Hi Yebobsbob,
I was just wondering about the amount of cool stuff you are posting for BMWs. Is this a private stash you collected over the years and now have no need for?
Would you ever sell anything with a buy it now price?

Do you have a low seat conversion K100/75 (wishful thinking on my part there)?

Thanks for reading

rossco

Rossco,

Yes I have a stash, clearing out the old mans shed. Mostly K100 stuff. No seat for you unfortunately. Lots of little stuff, brackets, RT glovebox lids, clutch, levers, brake pedals etc. I will put them up on ebay as I have the time.

Thanks for the reply Bob.

Are you open to having a visit from a very interested K owner of 17 years.
I have a network of at least 30 K owner friends in Australia and some of the equipment you are selling on ebay we would love to purchase at a fair price to enable us to help maintain our bikes as best we can. Unfortunately due to the nature of ebay it is often very difficult to purchase an item due to out bidding at the last second.
If you would like to see what we are doing the address is http://www.k100-forum.com/
All very dedicated and keen to keep our old bikes on the road as long as possible and in the best condition we can.

thanks for your time

Ross

Ross,

"Happy to have a visit. I am in Canberra and still have lots of little bits and pieces for K100. Some I cannot work out but might mean something to you."

Trip being planned as I type.

Dibs on all the good bits. I will decide what constitutes a good bit when I see it.

Good on you Rossco, I'm sure many on the forum would congratulate you on your out of the box thinking, and effort taken.
Of course you should have first dibs, but where will you put it all. I see that Rick has a fair size paddock , maybe truck it up there.
Good luck with it all.

Good luck in getting some nice pieces for good money

Would you fellows help a Yank? I have been looking for the breakout box Bosch made for early Ks with L-Jetronic to facilitate electrical diagnostics. If this seller has one I, or any other BMW tools, I would be a ready and willing buyer. Thanks.

When I applied for immigrant status they told me I was too old and regardless of my financial stability or fancy motorcycle, they have enough Americans there already, they don't need anymore, and they denied me.
So we "gringos" have to suck it up and pull together and make the best of what we have here. We can use the Oz model, but we need to look closely at the elements concerning, Politeness, Commraderie, and building local community. For a start, I will share anything I have with a willing native, who appreciates K life. I did battle with my bike today. I was reminded how lame I am at meKanicary. But if you don't admit it, you won't be able to change the weakness.
It is a great lesson on working together from the Ozzies. Thanks.
UJ

It is a shame that getting to live here is getting difficult but we have a huge number of people seeking refuge status and that is stretching our rescorses enormously. I don't blame them wanting to live here I certainly would be wanting a safe place to raise a family if I were in some of those countries but it is making it difficult for people from other countries.

Still have the Mother in Law Klompy, she doesn't have too much walking room now, too many bikes but she has never mentioned it. (whoever I am).
Wish I could help with the breakout box Themason, haven't seen one but I'm sure the troops here will have an eye out.
