1990 BMW K 75 C


The perfect bike for people that like to ride a bike, not work on it


The bike needed a new drive line and master brake cylinder when purchased.

It has a small oil leak from the weep hole at the bottom of the engine, from the oil/coolant pump.

These are about the only things that go wrong with this model.

Like anything, if it's been sitting the seals and gaskets can dry out.

General Comments:

The K75, (the flying brick!), has been called the longest running, most dependable motorcycle ever made by anyone, including BMW. Regular maintenance will keep them running forever.

There's a guy on the BMW owners of America website that put 375,000 miles on a K75! And it was killed in action in an accident!.

These bikes run anywhere from $2500 to $5000, used. I think they're the best buy for a used bike. I use it for commuting with the panniers on, and take 'em off on the weekend for the twisties!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
