A verty original BMW R75/5 1973 long wheelbase. This bike has only recorded 9000 miles to date!
The original owner bought the bike as a “write-off” – it had been crashed after only 200 miles. He replaced the frame, left cylinder and other parts and rode it from 1976 -1982 covering about 7000 miles then laid it up.
The second owner bought it in 1995, did some work and put it through a MOT but as he worked offshore he hardly used it, covering only 600 miles. I bought it in October 2010 after it has been off the road since 1996 – mileage was 7672 miles!
Over eight months I stripped the bike (except engine) and rebuilt it, new rear bevel drive splines for rear wheel, both wheels rebuilt with stainles steel spokes, vapour blasted,bearings and new Metzeler tyres & tubes. Telescopic forks dismantled and rebuilt. Both carburettors rebuilt. Rear frames area resprayed. Both barrels removed, vapour blasted and new stainless steel pushrod tubes and rubber seasl fitted. Back on the road it passed it’s MOT in late June 2011.
I have ridden it some 1500 miles since. Ride very well. starts first time (new coils, condenser and plugs).
