I don't think anyone paid retail for a K1. About 20 other more desirable and collectible bikes come to mind.

Whatever blows up your skirt.... Hell, some folks collect Vegas.

This bike was styled with a rider on it. It does look pretty homely by itself, but when you see it with a rider on it, it works.
