    Default 2002 K1200 / Hannigan

    An acquaintance has a K12 / Hannigan that he inherited from granddad.

    It's been setting for about 10 years, grand dad bought it on a whim and rode it sparingly, it is reported to have very low miles.

    I doubt from hearing about the machine that it was put away properly and most likely had the gas in it from that day.

    My friend says he has attempted to get it running , motor spins freely but does not fire up.

    He say's he wants to sell it , but really has no idea about the true value.

    Any advice I can pass along to him might be helpful , tips on getting it running also would be a big help.

    Thank you in advance for any replies.

    My bad , I thought he said it was a Layman kit, but it's a Hannigan .

    Bike only has 18k miles .

    Is it worth the trouble to restore it to running condition ??

    The K 1200 LT was a powerful, smooth incredible highway machine, always thought they would make a great trike ... you might have a mechanic give you an estimate to "restore" it to rideable ... new tires, maybe lots of seals, fluids, etc.

    I'm wondering about the fuel injection and the ABS system.

    Don't know very much about either system , but do remember BMW had some problems with the ABS and it was very expensive to repair or replace.

    I never had any issues with mine. The big fear with them was the final drive assembly (4% failure) mine never had any issues ... except it didn't go thump thump thump ...

    I changed your thread title to reflect the Hannigan.

    Default 2002 K1200 Hannigan

    It would be an easier sell if it was in running condition but BMW repair parts are not cheap. Most BMW shops do not like to touch the conversions. I've owned my 2006 K1200LT since new with a Hannigan conversion performed in 2012 and it has been a flawless interstate touring machine. But I've also heard several people say they could be a hard sell.

    Not because it's a BMW/Hannigan but some trikes, generally speaking. I know of a gentleman on another site that's been trying to sell his 2005 KLT trike for over 2 years and is actually thinking about donating it. I plan to keep mine until I can no longer get out of bed in the morning. Maybe look at these links to get an idea: Here or This

    Good luck with it……

    Not worth much, not running! Also, I'm sure the ABS is not used with a Hannigan of that vintage.
