K1200 RS in Detroit
« on: July 23, 2019, 01:25:15 PM »
Hi:
Saw this roaming craigslist.

https://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/mcy/d/brighton-1996-bmw-rs1200/6935534320.html

Looks decent, with the turn signals intact.

What's with these ads? The model of this moto is incorrect. It has all the appearance of a K1100RS but is being sold as an RS1200, which must be a failed prototype or a delusion evolving from the latest heatwave.

Personally, I prefer the 1100. Less bloated.
The paint scheme looks odd on this one, though. Not quite the special silver that left the BMW factory.

greetings...

not oe... the belly pan and side covers and bags have been painted close to the se scheme but not close enough... and the wheels are black instead of silver...

just looking at these pour images im thinking this thing was horizontal at some time during its life...
