We are pleased to offer this 7-year-old K1600GTL with 85K on the odometer as a PROJECT BIKE with a particularly attractive Value-to-Price ratio. The bike was previously owned by a couple who traveled extensively — they practically lived on this bike, which is why it has respectably earned its distinctly weathered appearance. While a K1600GTL is generally thought of as a “Luxury” bike, perhaps conjuring images of a pampered lifestyle, here instead we see a perfect example of a BMW’s versatility. This motorcycle was a daily workhorse, ridden all over the country in all types of weather and rarely put away in a nice warm garage at the end of the day. This bike is a SURVIVOR. And it will certainly survive a second life in the capable hands of its next owner. If that person is YOU, you’ll be glad to know that this PROJECT BIKE still runs and rides pretty well, although it’s not without some mechanical issues — mostly minor — that will require attention. More on all that below. A savvy buyer will see that there’s definitely a future here, and without a doubt, a huge VALUE, too! For someone willing to roll up his or her sleeves and dedicate some time to bringing this machine back to its full potential, this is a PROJECT BIKE well worth of the effort. Come in NOW for a look before this bountiful bargain gets away from you. Please call 1-888-269-2627 to speak with one of our BMW Certified Sales Advisors —Jim, Todd, or Kyle. Call TODAY!

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. Please take a moment to learn more about Bob’s PROJECT BIKE program and read our general disclaimer HERE.

When embarking on any project it’s important to have an end result in mind. A Goal. So, let’s talk about what an amazing motorcycle you will have after your PROJECT BIKE restoration is complete. Here’s a rundown of the Features & Equipment aboard this K1600GTL:
 • SIX-Cylinder, 1649 cc liquid-cooled inline engine with remarkable power and poise
 • ABS Pro    • ESA II (Electronic Suspension Adjustment)
 • DTC (Dynamic Traction Control)    • 3 Ride Modes (Rain/Road/Dynamic)
 • Hill Start Control    • TPM (Tire Pressure Monitoring)  
 • Audio System (AM/FM Tuner – Satellite Radio)   • Bluetooth Interface Control
 • Multifunction Display with On-Board Computer
 • Stepless Power Adjustable Comfort Windshield
 • Top Case with Comfort Backrest and Saddle Bags in Body Color
 • Adaptive Xenon Headlight with Dynamic Leveling
 • Heated Seats    • Heated Grips
 • Electronic Cruise Control   • Engine Protection Bars
 • LED Auxiliary Lights   • Auxiliary Brake Light on Top Case
 • Central Locking System    • Anti-Theft Alarm System
 • BMW/Garmin Navigator IV GPS    • Aeroflow Larger Windshield 
 • Auxiliary Fuse Box for Heated Gear   • Rear Plate Holder with Dual Helmet Locks (removed but included)

This PROJECT BIKE has some service needs. The techs in our Service Department did a thorough examination and evaluation. They identified the following issues that must be dealt with before this K1600GTL will pass Maryland Safety Inspection:
 • Rear shock is leaking
 • Rear brake rotor and brake pads must be replaced
 • Front Master Cylinder needs new cap and diaphragm
 • Front & rear tires must be replaced
 • Front fender is loose because upper-right mounting bolt is broken 
And some other service issues that are not pertinent to passing inspection:
 • Tire Pressure Monitoring does not function
 • Left-side saddlebag attaching mechanism functions poorly/needs adjustment
 • The bike is due for routine service (Bi-Annual) including a complete fluid & filter change, brake fluid service, and standard performance adjustments

Here’s more about the cosmetic condition of this PROJECT BIKE: It’s worth noting that its original paint color, Ocean Blue Metallic Matte, was never intended to shine; therefore, the rest of its acquired patina is now consistent! You can easily see the extensive surface discoloration due to prolonged exposure to the elements. A clear example of this is the handlebar switches where you can notice that all the markings have faded beyond readability. In addition, there is some corrosion in numerous places, paint chips and scratches in many places (typical tip-over damage on both sides), boot scuffs on the luggage and frame, crazing on the outer headlight cover lens, the windshield has turned a bit cloudy, the grips are worn, and so on. While it’s reasonable to anticipate a big improvement in the bike’s appearance after it gets a thorough cleaning and detailing (we have only given it a cursory washing), a realistic expectation is that, without extensive refurbishing, this bike will most likely never have that glowing “like-new” look again. Maybe that doesn’t matter to you. Like we said: it’s a SURVIVOR; and with that comes a certain appearance you may not describe as “pretty,” but which nonetheless commands respect. Any way you cut it, though, after necessary repairs and whatever level of cosmetic upgrade you’re comfortable with, your total cost on this PROJECT BIKE will leave you coming out WAY AHEAD.
