The BMW K-Series
K75 - K100 - K1 - K1100 - K1200
Never before there has been such a radical change in the history of BMW motorcycles as in 1983 when BMW presented the K100 series of motorcycles. At that time, the K100 was that full of innovative concepts that even now, 18 years later, no one believes that it's already a “Youngtimer”. That is why the proud owner of a K – model nowadays in fact has two bikes in one:
A modern and a classic motorcycle.
This homepage is especially dedicated to

This website is also dedicated to all those members of the BMW “family” who never lost faith in the future of motorcycles at BMW and kept their goal in sight even in bad times.We owe their skills and enthusiasm one of the world´s finest motorcycles – not perfect, but sophisticated as only few other bikes.

As you may have noticed flyingbrick is originally a German website, and English is not our native language. In the past only German speaking people could take advantage of this site. So we tried to translate it.

Another thing in advance: This site has got quite voluminous by now so that newbies may not find the needed information they are looking for right away. Many questions have already been discussed in FAQs.
Therefore, it may be wise to have a look there before making asking questions in the forum.

Therefore, we would like to ask you very kindly to publish all offers and requests at the classified ads section only.
