SOLD 06/17/17.....2976261 1971 BMW R75/5, Blue. 22 Ltr. Tank. Actual mileage unknown. Not Running “Project Bike”

This 1971 BMW R75/5 is a not running “Project Bike”. The motor turns over, clutch and brakes work, kickstarter works, there is a key for the seat lock, there is a tool tray but no tools, the choke mechanism works. The original centerstand works, but has a missing push-down tine. The aftermarket sidestand works. All the switches work well, the cables are good.

The tank has some rust spots and the original liner is mostly gone, but there are no dents and the cap is good. There are no dents in the shock covers. Both wheels are straight, and the front wheel spokes are fair, but the rear spokes are rusty. The transmission shifts through all gears. There are no cracks in the fenders. The bike is equipped with a luggage rack. The exhaust system is complete, originals mufflers are solid, somewhat rusty on the surface but no rust through. There is a dent in the left muffler.

The seat needs a cover, the pan is good and solid, but needs paint. There is no headlight insert. The speedo needle is broken, the tach needle is good. The carb slides and butterflies all move freely. The engine and frame numbers do not match; the motor is from a May of 1971 R75/5, the frame is February of 1970, the title is clear and says it is a 1971 model. All 4 of the rare original aluminum body turn signals are on the bike. There is a period luggage rack on the bike.
