Abstract: Projective modules over real affine rings, $ R$, with compact real points, $ X$, can be considered as fiber bundles over $ X$ by tensoring with the real valued continuous functions on $ X$. This induces a map $ f:{K_0}(R) \to {K^0}(X)$, In this article the kernel of $ f$ is determined and an example with nonzero kernel is given.
