Myself I don't think the Ks make a good cafe whatever but this is just wrong

I'm cafe converting a sweet K1 that has some very average fairings. The previous owner was a bit of a brute to them, but I know how rare these bits are so I didn't want to chuck them. (I hope they find a new home!)

I guess he wants a cafe bike with the turning radius of a Mack truck. Laughing

At least he's not throwing the fairing away.

I have a sweet 1953 Rolex Submariner watch that I am doing a Timex Indiglo conversion on.  I know how rare these watches are so I am offering the individual internal parts which are all in excellent condition...


...moron.

But if you read further down, he wants some Sap to pay him $1200 for the fairings, 2 parts of which need repairs. That would go a long way to paying for the conversion... well, that's his plan at least Laughing

There's really nothing sacred about a K1. It was just a funky styling exercise by BMW.

And, given the turning radius, riding position and lack of storage it's not a very practical bike.

I like mine because it's funky but if I could only keep one of my K bikes it wouldn't be the K1.

Can't fault a guy for trying.  Neither you nor I would pay that but somebody might. And it might be worth $1,200 to somebody.

I see people asking what I think are insane prices for all sorts of K bikes on ebay but if somebody buys it then I guess they think it's worth it.

Here's a recent example:

Must check where is my bargepole. To make sure it doesn't touch that one. Exhaust alone is rubbish, like he ran out of paint I mean $.

But to do that to a K1.......wow, clean up the K1 and sell it and enough then for a café job on a cosmetically challenged k100.

Very true mate.  Somebody out there in Australia might have a K1 that needs a fairing panel. I guess they wouldn't be all that common either so they may pay a good price for it.

Olaf.... I absolutely agree with you there mate but I think you're referring to the other post K100 $900 neg

I don't think I've seen a K1 on the road in Brisbane in the last 10-15 years.  The were very thin on the ground originally, they will eventually start being appreciated enough to start fetching big money. Once that happens hopefully the chop jobs will end. Hard enough spotting any Bricks on the road these days. I know of quite a few around but only one on the road a yellow K100 outfit. I occasionally spot a black K100 RT heading north up the highway. All the others in various states of repair or disrepair. 
Regards Martin.

Looking at the bits lined up against the wall, I was reminded of execution by firing squad.

Reasons you don't see many K1s around:

There weren't that many made/sold in the first place - less than 7,000.

A lot of people treat them as collector items so barely put any miles on them.  (Mine had about 75K miles on it when I bought it and that's pretty high miles for a K1 from what I've seen.)

They're not a very practical bike.  In the city the turning radius bites and out touring they don't have much storage.
