Outstanding concours restoration completed by the Heritage Division of Max BMW-Connecticut!�� Approximately 300 miles ridden by vintage motorcycle collector and connoisseur, Ray Lamontagne, since completion.� All original, and better than factory by presentation today, it also comes fitted with complete Krauser hard bags with soft travel insert bags, quad rearview mirrors, and Metzeler tires!� As good as they get! Beginning in 1970, BMW introduced the /5 models in three forms; 500cc (R50/5), 600cc (R60/5), and the 750cc (R75/5). These were the first motorcycles built entirely at the Berlin, Germany plant and stayed in production for only 3 years before revisions were introduced.� All of the /5 models have both electric & kick starters, air-cooled four-stroke opposed twin cylinder boxer-style engines with hemispherical combustion chambers, 4-speed transmissions, and shaft driven power to the rear wheel.� All models were equipped with telescopic front forks, tachometer, 12-volt alternator charging systems, and turn signals.� The largest of the bunch, the R75/5 was equipped with larger bore specs and bigger Bing 32mm carburetors to produce 50 horsepower, and an achievable top speed of 110 mph! This stunningly restored 1971 BMW R75/5 was expertly completed by the crafted hands at Max BMW based in Danbury, CT through their Heritage Division for vintage classics! Finished in Gloss Black with proper White pinstripe, it continues to operate with its original, numbers matching engine and proper Bing carbs, all fully rebuilt.� All new wiring harness, Hagon shocks, and upgraded Enduralast charging system.� No detail was left untouched, leaving results likely better than new!� It will come documented with MAX BMW restoration documentation.� Having sold to Grammy-awarded singer, songwriter Ray Lamontagne upon completion, it has traveled only 300 miles on the open road under his care.� Ray's collection of motorcycles is broad and outstanding, with a taste for only the best money can buy.� Having enjoyed this one since July of 2014, he has elected to sell it for something new.� It is exceptional throughout, museum worthy without question, and restored to be enjoyed.� Act quickly. They rarely present themselves on the market as nicely as this one does!
