1973 BMW R75/5 LWB. BLACK. Large 22 Liter fuel tank, Very clean & original, Matching Numbers. New tires, only original 15,128 miles. NEW PHOTOS OF THIS BIKE WITHOUT FAIRING WILL BE POSTED ASAP.

This 1973 BMW R75/5 is the much sought after Long Wheel Base model (LWB), which provides more passenger seating room, and better high-speed stability due to the longer wheelbase.  This bike is very clean and Original & correct as delivered from the factory. The bike has a period correct Butler & Smith Luggage Rack, and exhaust header guards. The mufflers are also the correct /5 “Cigar Tip” style from BMW, and are in VERY good condition. It is also equipped with the BMW “S” handlebars, a common Dealer Option.

It WAS equipped with a beautiful Hannigan Touring Fairing.  HOWEVER, after removing the fairing to photograph the VIN number plate, we discovered that somebody had bent the edges of the headlight bucket inwards to make it clear the inside of the fairing. The fairing has now been perminately removed, and the rest of the bike perfected with original BMW headlight, straight headlight bucket, OE aluminum turn signals with /5 mounts, frame paint touch ups, correct mirrors, stainless battery covers, tool tray, powder coated battery box, etc.

New Dunlop tires have just been installed, front & back. The motor top end has just been resealed to stop minor leaks commonly found on Vintage BMWs. The carbs were also cleaned and rebuilt. New original Continental cloth wrapped fuel line has been installed. With inline fuel filters. There is a tool tray, but no tool kit or tire pump.
