Only 5,500 miles from new, 1993 BMW 740cc K75S

1993 BMW K75S

It was inevitable that BMWs flat twin engine configuration would be updated. It only took 60 years. In 1984, the 4-cylinder K100 was released, maintaining the company’s reputation for exemplary build quality, comfort and mile-crunching performance. Following the success of the model, a lighter-weight 740cc 3-cylinder variant was introduced with a capable 75bhp of BMW smooth power.

The motorbike offered

This 1992 BMW K75S was sold by last year to a California collector unable to resist the condition of the bike. However, now, with an additional 140 miles on the odometer, it is time to “thin the herd”. Prior to his ownership, the bike was enjoyed by an incredibly meticulous collector: not a large collection, but everything in it is presented beautifully. The K75 is no exception. The half-faired sport-tourer is offered in extraordinary condition throughout. The anthracite paint scheme is excellent with no scuffs or blemishes of note. The seat is in excellent condition and the panniers are almost perfect, certainly a rarity.

Having remained on static display for some time, the bike was in need of a good service. It was recently treated to a new fuel pump and filter, new Michelin tires and a new lithium battery. The service included fresh engine, transmission, final drive oil, new brake fluid and new coolant. The rear drive was lubricanted. Now, the bike rides as well as it looks. It starts easily, and after a short warm through, rides perfectly smoothly. The fully adjustable Öhlins suspension feel and the gear change are like butter in their action. The comfy-couch feel is quite overwhelmingly addictive. Now with only 5,500 original miles on the odometer and in need of nothing for a thrash through the canyons or a cross-country tour, the bike is ready for its next custodian.
