greetings...

its the little things that decypher what the moto have been through from birth... who knows... butts the grypoon would never let these small things leave his garage... butts some rebuilders donts even notice...

front master screws missing paint... please tell how that happens on always garaged moto except for eighteen hundert thirty miles over 27 years... and instrument lens... and o ring... and no oe folding key... my 1st question would be is this on a salvage or rebuilt title...

Boy you guys are fussy! But then again the little things tell a lot. Next time I buy a used K I'll bring some of you with me.

The hazard and ABS switches don't look right.  I could be wrong, but both of my K100RS bikes had the blank spot or heated grip switch on the right side with the hazard on the left and the ABS in the middle.

Still, it's in pretty good shape.  Either a phenomenal rebuild or very low mileage.  I'll bet the cappuccino crew is drooling over the chance to loop it.

Yes, nineteen HUNDRED miles.

No, EIGHTEEN hundred THIRTY miles. Beyond that, when the tripmeter on my moto passes from 9 to 0, the odometer numerals click into register, not out of alignment. Mine could be exceptional though.

Sharp eyes, JO and Laitch.  That odometer has been diddled by an amateur.  Still, the bike looks pretty pristine.

Looking at those photos, I vaguely recall looking at a white 1991 16V K100RS with a very similar background in the photos for sale in the Hudson Valley about two years ago when I was looking to replace the Moby Brick.  Can't say for sure what the price was, but it was listed as having very low mileage, something like 15,000 miles.  I do know I passed on it because the price was more than I wanted to spend.

I wonder if this is the same bike.

ridden regularly for the last 6 years and it has less than 1900 mi. ???? did they just ride it around the block ? red flag. I'd rather it had 19, 000 miles.
