New to me k100
Hello all, I am purchasing a 1987 BMW K100 with 11,000 miles on it. It has been sitting for 9 years since the last registration, and was owned by a mechanic so I hope it was put away correctly.
I am not new to motorcycle repairs or rehabs (I have a small fleet of early-mid honda CB's) but am new to BMW bikes and their idiosyncrasies.
Basically all I know is that the bike is physically in good shape, has had a mouse nest in the airbox, the gas tank is full of varnish and the engine isn't stuck. I will be picking it up later this week so will have more info at that time.
I know that 11k on this bike isn't even broken in, but are there any real deal-breaker items that I should check before I pick it up?
