1972 BMW R75/5
Odometer: Indicating 91,943miles
Engine: Boxer Twin
- Quality German engineering
- Retro Classic
- Fantastic original condition
BMW had been building cars since 1923 after producing aircraft engines starting in 1916. The brand first provided engines for other companies motorbikes before seeing the profitability of building bikes themselves.
A long line of successful motor bikes followed, and the company had several first for the industry including hydraulically damped telescopic forks.
From 1970 BMW introduced a revamped product line with completely redesigned engines available in 500cc,600cc and 750cc's.
A flat twin layout offered a low centre of gravity and with the /5 a longer swingarm improving handling.
The /5 models were short-lived getting replaced in 1974 this relatively short model run makes the R75/5 a rare and collectable piece.
This bike is in nice original condition painted in jet gloss black with beautiful chrome and stainless.
A fantastic example of a retro classic bike that's ready to ride, a must for any serious bike collector.
