Hello All,

I have recently purchased an '85 K100 RT that had been
sitting in a barn for many years. The bike was last registered for
road use 23 years prior?! I am cleaning it up and nearly ready to
try to start the engine, and get a better idea how good the
bike is mechanically. I have some "pannier frames" which are wire frame and
likely used for soft bags although I am not sure of that. I would like to
convert back to the BMW hard bags.

Best,
Guil

Mechanically there is no reason the engine and mechanicals should not be sound.

Your issues will be with brake and engine seals rubbers brake and fuel hoses vacuum pipes etc but they are not particularly difficult to do. But dont try to ride it on the tyres on it. Too old.
