Evil or Very Mad Drove off whilst still chained to the railing....not happy.
Eliptical rear wheel. Cheaper to buy a second hand one.
I see the rim size is 2.75x17 E. The rim I am proposing to buy is of the correct size.
This is the code on the wheel I am eying up: I need to know if its correct or not in terms of fitting my K75. It is off a K75 RT 1993. 
36,31-1 450 938
Any knowledge out there? Thanks in advance, (as usual)!

Any of the Y spoke rear wheels will fit. If it is from a K75RT then it should be a Y spoke but be very careful if looking for the 3 spoke type there are lots of traps.

Thanks Rick. It is indeed a Y spoke.

Like what? I put three spokes on my 86 K100. Runs fine.

Any of the Y spoke rear wheels will fit as long as it's not from a basic K75 drum brake-equipped bike. It being from a K75RT you're safe as they were all disc brake rear.

As for the rear three spoke versions, I agree with Rick in that there are K75S & K100LT 3x17 versions and K100-16V/K1100RS 4.5x18 versions. They'll both fit, sometimes minor mods are required, and being aware of that difference is useful.
