Here is a chance to own a piece of history!!!!

Chris, Mr. Boxer Metal, purchased this 1973 R75/5 in 1988 as a project. Shortly after getting it running (with help) he got a job at a BMW Motorcycle dealership which over the next couple of years he was able to do the following:

  • Original blue California license plate
  • 900cc pistons
  • New valves & guides
  • 336 Sport camshaft
  • New lifters
  • New oil pump
  • Rebuild carburetors
  • New clutch
  • Rebuilt transmission
  • New wheel bearings
  • Custom woven front brake shoes
  • Heavy Duty BMW shocks
  • Rebuilt forks
  • Alloy top clamp
  • Magura European handlebars
  • Switched to the Toaster Tank
  • Converted to Long Swingarm(LWB) with a 1973 only rear frame, swingarm & seat
  • Complete new exhaust system
  • R60/5 rear drive

All parts were 100% BMW!

 

2 years ago the following was done:

  • Full service
  • Rebuilt carburetors
  • New battery

 

Fall of 2018 the following was done:

  • New Icon shocks
  • YSS fork springs
  • New wiring harness
  • Restore turn signals
  • Rebuild wheels
  • Stainless spokes
  • New wheel bearings
  • Gloss black powder coated rims
  • Media blasted hubs
  • Painted headlight bucket
  • Restored Tim Stafford horn
  • Replace a lot of the original hardware with newly Cadmium plated original hardware
  • Original short thin stem mirror
  • Braided cloth fuel line w/ Boxer Metal alloy fittings

 

Included with the bike:

  • Complete & original tool kit
  • BMW shop towel
  • Tire patch kit
  • Tire pump
  • Cable lock

This was the bike that started the next 30 years of Chris, Mr. Boxer Metal, being in the BMW Motorcycle industry! 

The odometer indicates 71,XXX miles which is over the past 30 years. The first 60,000 was put on it from 1988 to 1990. 

It’s an amazing & very fast vintage BMW that needs nothing more than to be ridden.

It is time for someone else to enjoy it!

 

NOTE: Also available for an additional charge:

  • Saddlebags
  • Saddlebag Mounts & Rear Rack
  • Original Stock /5 Wheels (not restored)
