Thanks for looking!
For sale is my matching numbers 1973 BMW R75/5 (LWB) that I bought few months back with the intention to restore unfortunately other priorities came across and I can no longer keep it .
With that said, the bike starts, runs, shifts and drives good for a 43 year old. Since my ownership I have ride it up and down the street about every other week to keep battery up and gas flowing.
All lights work as well as the horn. Have original key. No seat lock key installed. No oil leaks. Previous owner said rebuilt fork tubes, took the front brakes apart, cleaned them up, lube pivots and reassembled. No way to verify but bike handles very good. I have the original air box, intake manifold pipes/tubes (from airbox to carb), rear pegs, original progressive rear shocks and choke lever that will be included on the sale.
Bike is completely stock and original and comes with a clear title. Odometer reads 10,961 miles, can’t confirm so I’m listing as not actual mileage. It’s a good bike to drive and enjoy as-is or a great candidate to restore back to showroom condition for someone willing to put some time on it. Also great candidate for a cafe racer or scrambler project.
Could use a need a new battery, seat cover and paint.
Please ask questions, don’t assume.
