Talking Parted-out Bikes & the Luck Of The Irish!

I needed a set of shocks for my aging 2000 K1200LT (62K on the clock but still a virgin until 100K!).

I contacted Re-Psycle BMW Parts which advertises in our local club’s newsletter. They had a "new" 2004 K1200LT that was a mechanic's training bike from BMW with only 6 miles on the odo! MAX BMW's fiche listed front & rear for $1,720.62. The 2000 & 2004 part numbers are the same! I repeat the shocks have six miles on them!!
Re-Psycle offered them at $800 + local sales tax and shipping. WHAT A DEAL!

Here's the real story . . . "In early winter brought home 10 later model (1990-2005), very low mile, never wrecked BMW parts bikes, that we were lucky to buy from a closed mechanics school with an agreement that we must part them out; Before we part them out we have been getting them started, and then riding each of them to test out the drive train, ABS, and other components (videos are available). So far we have parted a 1993 R100GS with 3,000 miles, a 1999 R1200C with 36,000 miles, a 2001 R1150RT with 3,060 miles, a 2004 K1200LT with 6 miles, and a 2004 R1200GS with 3 miles. Several more late model BMWs will be parted soon. "

BMW would not allow these bike to be sold to individuals, but they could be parted-out. (due to liability?)

WHAT A DEAL and to verify, I do have lotsa Irish blood in me veins. My paternal grand dad came to New England as an infant from County Sligo!
