Restored 1973 BMW R75/5 Motorcycle.
The engine was stripped, tolerances checked, and reassembled with all new seals and gaskets.
The heads were overhauled.
All the casings were vapour blasted.
A new clutch assembly and replacement starter motor were fitted.
The original kick start gearbox was rebuilt, and a new end cover and kickstart fitted.
The only non standard item fitted was the inclusion of the deep sump kit for higher capacity and better oil cooling.
The carbs were completely stripped and overhauled.
The wheel hubs were blasted, fitted with new bearings, and then rebuilt onto the original rims which have been re polished.
The paintwork was re-finished in traditional piano black with white coachlines.
Most of the nuts and bolts were replaced with new stainless, as have the exhaust pipes, along with new silencers.
Many fasteners were also bright nickel plated.
The seat was replaced with a complete, quality British made unit, with steel base and new cover, new hinges, grab rail and trims.
The original rear shocks were also stripped, bodies re plated, and springs powder coated.
The bike retains its tool kit and original tyre pump.
There have been countless other replacement items, including fork gaiters, brakes, cables, battery, all oils and filters, grips, footrests, and badges.
A superb quality BMW motorcycle restoration.
