When BMW introduced the R75 as part of the /5 lineup, it was the biggest bike they offered. The /5 gained an electric start, coils, and an alternator to complement the reliable motor and 100+ top speed. Here’s a low mileage example of a /5 with the lovely toaster tank.
The 75 featured a 749cc boxer twin that produced 50 horspeower and 43 pound-feet of torque. For more on what it’s like to live with a big /5, check out this story on Motorcycle Classics, where they suggest it’s one of the first sport touring bikes.
This example (VIN: 2985598) is said to be very clean and it’s ready to go thanks to a recent full service that included a carb sync, valve adjustment, oil change, new battery, and new fuel lines/filters. The listing includes a hefty 122 photos so that you can see all around the two-wheeler.
