This 1973 BMW R75/5 was recently acquired by the selling dealer from the original owner, who received the bike as a gift from his father at age 15. It now shows 57k miles and is powered by a 750cc boxer twin mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The bodywork is finished in orange, and the bike is also equipped with BMW hard cases. The seller has performed an oil/filter change and an inspection, and this R75 is now being offered with a factory owner’s manual and backrest, as well as a clean Texas title. 1973 was the final year of the /5 model, which was capable of a 110 mph top speed when new. The bike came standard with telescopic front forks and a 12-volt electrical system. This example features an orange tank and front fender, as well as three BMW hard cases mounted out back. The single instrument includes both a 120 mph speedometer and an 8k rpm tachometer. 57,305 miles are shown on the odometer. A factory backrest will also be included in the sale, though it is not pictured. The air-cooled boxer twin is mated to a 4-speed gearbox and sends power to the rear wheel through a shaft drive. The seller noticed a drop of oil underneath the motorcycle when he recently picked it up from the original owner’s garage, where it had been parked since April of this year. An oil and filter change has since been performed, and an inspection reportedly included checking the fluid levels and systems. No service records were provided by the original owner, though an owner’s manual and tool roll are included as shown in the gallery below. The selling dealer also reports that a Texas state inspection will be completed before the new owner takes possession.
