BMW R75 /5 - Toaster Tank, Unrestored, Lovely For Sale (1972)Offered for sale is my very rare 1972 BMW R75 /5 in beautiful unrestored condition.
This is the very rare SWB toaster tank model in original BMW Curry Gold Metallic paintwork.
12 Months MOT / Tax Exempt (historic vehicle), UK registered with V5 in my name (I'm the first UK keeper and purchased from the original US owner).
Just serviced with all fluids replaced (engine oil, transmission, shaft drive & final drive)
New continental rear tyre (with new Michelin inner tube and rim tape)
Matching continental front tyre
Original Bing carburetors ultrasonically cleaned & rebuild 'as new'
New sump gasket
New rocker cover gaskets
New 'Sito' Cigar silencers
New seat (original available and in good condition)
New indicator relay
New petcocks (originals available)
New Magura choke lever & cables

All filters replaced
All cables replaced
All of the original parts removed are available and I have receipts from Motobins for over £750 in parts alone.
Also available are a set of period 'WIXOM' side panniers & mounting kit and a BMW alloy / hardwood period rear rack. I will include these in the sale if the asking price is met. I'll upload a photo of these in the next few days.
The original BMW tool kit & hand pump are all present as is the under-seat tool tray.
This is a very reluctant sale but the reality is I have too many bikes and with a house move imminent I need to sell some of my collection.
Viewing is available in Burgess Hill, West Sussex by appointment.
