1972 BMW R75/5 Toaster For Sale

$3500 obo. Located in Pasadena, CA.

 

SOLD

 

This is a great classic bike and has treated me very well. I am selling it simply because I am riding my R90S more and I need the money for my upcoming wedding.

I purposely did not wash the bike before taking the pictures. This was after riding the bike daily for one week on my commute. There are some water spots on the bike from some sprinklers that hit the bike while parked.

Bike cleans up beautifully. I thought pictures of a bike with a bit of road grime would more accurately show its condition and lack of leaks.

Recently took her from Los Angeles to Monterey and back. Rode 2-up with luggage and she performed wonderfully.

Clear CA title. All maintence receipts and bike history.
