1970 BMW R75/5, Black & Chrome. Full Mechanical and Cosmetic Restoration.
This bike has undergone a complete front to back, top to bottom, inside out electrical, mechanical, and cosmetic restoration.
The project began with a complete down-to-frame strip down to the individual nut, screw, and gasket level.
Everything was then cleaned and degreased.
Various chrome parts were then re-chromed.
Any part that was not cosmetically perfect, or which had outlived their useful life, was replaced with BMW OEM parts.
The entire frame was then powder coated with exact color match.
Tank, front and rear fenders, and headlamp housing was then sent to the one painter in California at the time with the original BMW paint formulas who repainted each part and added pin striping to fenders.
All non-chromed metal — engine casing, hubs, cylinder sleeves, and other metallic parts — were completely stripped, de-greased, and walnut shell blasted to clean and restore finish without leaving any abrasive residue within the engine.
The entire engine and its internals were then completely rebuilt with BMW OEM parts – rings, brackets, bushings, seals, gaskets.
All components of the electrical system, wiring harnesses, etc. were also rebuilt/replaced.
Mufflers, exhaust piping, handlebars, shocks, shock covers, and various other Magura and BMW OEM parts were added/swapped out to complete restoration.
One of the cleanest BMW 75/5’s you’ll find out on the road.
