Re: K1 still in its crate, never unboxed and started

Wow! I owned a '92 K1 that was about as pristine as one could expect even with 20K miles on the clock. It wasn't what I would call an exceptional bike but it sure as hell was different. I'm not familiar with the "Ultima" model listed in your link. As for the 70K euro's all I can say is that someone over there is smoking something......

That said, if I had Vic's money I wouldn't mind owning it.

I'm no expert on long term engine storage, but won't that engine be a complete rusty/leaky mess by now?

I would just love this bike, with matching banana-coloured leathers and lid, of course
