Some of the Project Bikes we offer at Bob’s need only some basic maintenance and a little TLC to bring them back to ride-worthy, pride-worthy condition. And others? Well… examine these photos and you’ll see right away that we didn’t call this K75S a Project Bike for nothing! There is no getting around the fact that this bike will require some major work and a host of replacement parts before it’s a safe, running, and roadworthy bike again. We won’t lie; it will almost certainly require a replacement engine. (See more details below.) But we would not offer this Project Bike at all if we didn’t know that there is still a future for this motorcycle, and that we have customers who will be excited by the prospect of taking on such a challenge.
As with all PROJECT BIKES we want buyers to know as much as possible about the bike before making a purchase. We’ve nothing to hide and our only goal is that the new owner for each and every PROJECT BIKE feels they paid fairly and got a good, if not great value in the deal. We encourage people to call, schedule a time to meet with one of our sales advisors and inspect each machine in person so they fully understand all the positives as well as the potential downsides involved in the refurbishing process.

SERVICE NOTES on this K75S Project Bike:
Though this machine has only 11,600 miles on it, clearly it has had a hard life. It’s probably safe to say that neglect was what it suffered from most. Our Techs looked it over carefully and identified the following issues.
• Engine became originally disabled because of leaking head gasket which allowed coolant to leak into combustion chamber and contaminate the oil. The cooling system does not hold pressure. At least one valve is bad so at least one cylinder is lacking proper compression. In our view, replacing the engine with a good running used engine (available for around $900) would be a wiser course of action than trying to restore the current one. In either case, expect to replace several parts such as seals, gaskets, intake manifold, air tubes, clutch actuation parts, etc. with new ones. Current engine has, as you can see, been already partly dismantled. Only the parts pictured are included with the sale. Please review pictures closely. No other parts, accessories or components are included.
• Following engine renewal or replacement, a complete general maintenance including full brake service will be required
• Tires are old and show dry rot; need replacing
• Both painted battery side covers are missing
• Logo roundel on seat cowl is missing
• Scratches in the paint are visible on the left side of the fairing. Further scratches appear on the brake lever and bar-end. There is a paint chip on the seat cowl.
Here’s a PROJECT BIKE that needs a great deal of work done to it. But if you are someone with the time and talent to devote to its resurrection, you are probably also someone who can envision the end result: a fine machine worthy of your investment.
