In 1938 BMW introduced the R51 to replace the R5.
The 494cc overhead valve engine of the R 51 used a one-piece tunnel box for distribution where the timing chains operated the two camshafts on each side of the crank, with the advantage of using significantly longer tappets and rods. court.
The Bosch generator with its power distributor and coil were positioned under the front engine hood.
The 4-speed transmission was controlled by the pedal on the left side, while the lever on the right was used to place the transmission in neutral. On the right side there is also a manual lever, mainly used to bring the transmission into neutral during stops.
On the front the R 51 was fitted with a telescopic fork, a real treat for the time, as well as the telescopic rear shock absorbers.
