Wow! 

The ad says 6 miles on the clock...which equates to about 3 feet a day for the last 31 years. Assuming the odometer doesn't go backwards when the bike is rolled backwards, I guess the owner never got beyond rolling it out of the garage, having a look at it and then putting it back again. 

I wonder if it has the original tankful of petrol too - good old fashioned original leaded petrol (what we used to call 4 star) ...probably more stable than the ethanol laced, additive enhanced, unleaded stuff that we pay handsomely for these days at the pump - but still possibly past it's use by date.

A mil is 10 kilometers, so 6mil is 60 kilometers.  That's 37 miles in 31 years or 14 feet per year. He probably rolled it out of the garage and down to the end of the driveway to show it off to the neighbours before returning it. Very Happy

Stunning!

Reminds me of a mate's K100 standard from some years back.

The original owner had seen it in a glass display case at a major airport in Europe whilst travelling on business in '84. He enquired about it and an offer was made. He owned BMW car dealerships so it was ship freighted over to him. He never rode the bike because he was a short arse. His son's weren't interested in it. It sat for ten-plus years in his workshop at the back, covered with a sheet.

In comes my mate who is the Wurth salesman for the district. He's seen the bike languishing for all those years and finally makes a 'low ball' offer which is accepted. After tyres, oils, battery, petrol tank flush and a few seals, he has a brand new red standard K bike to motor about on.

It cost him less than $2000 plus the get-running costs. The odo read 90 miles.

Was thinking the same.
It has a broken mirror as well.
