1973 BMW R75/5 w/ Sidecar + Wixom bags & fairing - Fantastic daily running shape. & a perfect addition to any motor enthusiast's collection.
This is a rare find, n absolute gem. The bike is a '73 BMW R75/5 SWB (short wheel base) in black. The sidecar is an Easyrider in black with matching pin-stripes. The Odo reads 51,3XX but, t was TOTAL Restoration, ompletely rebuilt from the ground-up in 2010/11. Conveniently I have a blog-site of the entire rebuild for your reading pleasure: - please message me for the link -(This was not my rebuild, am only aware of this page from the previous owner).
Some facts/extras:
/5 body and R75 motor with a /6 5 speed transmission and rear differential. (this helps a ton with the sidecar. The power is smooth throughout with an empty or full sidecar.
Unit Forks brand "Earls style" fork.
R90 dual disc front wheel/brake
Car battery installed in sidecar (in place of stock battery). Tons of crank!
OEM Wixom bags and fairing! Rare!
Original toolkit + Manual
Comes with a box of extras including rear rack, pare clutch cable, spare sidecar tube, pare air filter and tons of other parts from the rebuild.
I'll include the matching pin-striped half helmet w/ BMW logo.
This bike is not perfect, t has a couple little scuffs and nicks here and there, ut that's what I love about it. You don't feel bad riding it ALL THE TIME, nd it still looks great. This bike gets ALL of the attention anywhere you go.
Starts up and runs smooth every single time. I've never had a hiccup in the year I've been riding it. I would consider it to be in great/excellent condition for it's age.
I hate to see it go but I need to get back on 2 wheels and am looking to trade into a BMW F800 or Tiger 800 and I can't afford both.
If this bike speaks to you it'll be worth every penny. Title is in my hand.
