This 1970 BMW R75/5 was purchased two years ago by the seller, who proceeded to complete a refurbishment begun by the previous owner. The work included fresh paint and a new seat as well as re-honed cylinders, new rings, and a tune-up for the 749cc boxer twin, which is paired with a 4-speed transmission. The seller has ridden the bike approximately 200 of its 32k indicated miles since 2016. This R75/5 is sold with a clean Michigan title in the seller’s name. The frame was reportedly powder coated black and the bodywork refinished in Grenada Red with white pinstriping. The replacement seat does not incorporate stock aluminum grab rails, and the passenger foot pegs hav been removed. Weinmann wire wheels wear new Shinko tires. The headlight shell contains a combination 120 mph speedometer, 8,000 rpm tachometer and 5-digit odometer showing 32k miles. A factory-style teardrop key is present. The 750cc boxer twin produced 50 horsepower when new and powers the rear wheel through a 4-speed transmission with shaft drive. The engine was reportedly overhauled by a BMW mechanic with re-honed cylinders, new rings, and reconditioned valves with new seats as well as a tune-up with a fresh condenser and ignition points. The exhaust and battery have also been replaced, and a start-up video is provided above.
