Few months ago I start looking for a bike here in Brazil since I'm working here for a while (couple years maybe).
I found this 1998 75th Anniversary Edition in very mint conditions, with only 23.000 kilometers (Less then 15K miles) and then start bothering the owner to sell. He sold it to me last October and I'm very happy with it. Had to change the Hall Sensor that cost me a trip to Ushuaia last December, but now I know that is a common issue on this year model. I bought a new Hall Sensor that is not carrying the problem, so I guess now I have a bike that I may keep for long time.
I called then only BMW dealer here in Sao Paulo and was told (not confirmed) that only 8 of this model were sold here back in 1998 and 1999. So I"m the luck owner of one!!!

It also was our wedding carriage... :)
