More InformationI am selling my baby..she is just one too many machines in my life. She started life as an R60/5 swb, and is now a R75/5 lwb. She comes with her original motor ( and tranny) that was crated when running 20 years ago, and with the short swing arm...If for some reason you would want to restore her with matching numbers. She has had all the metal Powder coated Blue. Rebuilt carbs, all new oils, valves adjusted and freshly tuned.
New paint on fenders, tank(s), fairing (Wixom), trunk, battery covers. The pin-striping is all by hand like the original. New covers on both the factory and corbin seats. 3 sets of luggage...krauser white with nice patina, krauser black that I have used extensively, and a new never used set of black hepco/becker reproduction bags. Two one piece (original BMW) luggage racks chrome. One that holds the hard plastic, and one that holds the classic period leather bags (available now from Blue Moon). I have replaced a lot of bolts with stainless. AND!!!...bar end turn signals from the R69S model. (originals, not reproductions). I also have matching /6 battery covers, when you want to change her look. BOTH the classic toaster tank and larger tank with rubber knee pads. BMW factory tank bag....and way too many spare parts to list. The 4 speed gearbox was rebuild around 65K, I replaced the timing chain around 70K. The headlight is upgraded to H4, fork springs are now progressives, rear springs upgraded. (saved all original equipment). Tool kit with a few tools added to the factory one. factory tire pump.
Everything works as it should and she runs smooth and strong. She is not a museum piece, but is in very very good condition. I think these old /5's are some of the best bikes BMW ever produced, and are too fun to ride to let them be garage queens. I am probably going to regret selling it...
