Thanks Mark,

I asked about the un-original paint scheme. The current owner said that there were some spots that had been worn and it didn't appear that it had been any other color than green. He thought maybe it had been custom painted from the factory?? He did provide us with the VIN and my husband followed up with the Boise BMW dealership.

I really do like the look of the Missouri bike (makes my heart go pitter-pat) but I guess one thing of concern is that there seems to be some signs that the head gaskets were sealed with gasket sealant. A no-no from what I've been told.

I'm not mechanically inclined but hope to learn to take care of the basics on one of these bikes... so I really appreciate the link.
