BMW keeps one-upping themselves when it comes to sportbikes as of late – they’ve just announced the M1000RR – but their history of inline-4 sporting machines starts with the famous K1.
This example (VIN: WB1053503M6365512) has 39,700 miles and it’s been with the seller since April of 2017. He says that “the first owner in Los Angeles sold it in 1997 with 7k miles. Second owner put only 500 miles and sold the K1 in 1998 to a friend of mine in LA who ended up in Montana circa 2014.” He has service records going back to 2000 and when he acquired this bike it did not have any graphics. “It looked very plain to me” so he sourced the OEM graphics and he reupholstered the Corbin seat “in lighter grey to accent the black color and new graphics.” He says that he would have no issues riding it across the USA, though it needs new tires. Amusingly (at least to me), the sale includes a one year membership to the BMW Motorcycle Owners of America club.
Find this K1 for sale in Great Falls, Montana with bidding up to $2,550 and the reserve not yet met here on eBay.
