K-loops will be constructed as transversals in classical groups over an ordered field. Manywell-known examples are subsumed in the present approach. Special attention is payed to the question which of these K-loops have fixed point free left inner mappings. Some new such examples are given. Isomorphisms between some of the K-loops are established as well.
