1971 BMW R75/5

A tribute to /5 series motorcycles, a mild restoration, and a revival project.

Very narrow R90S style handlebars with a compact feel for a sporty riding experience. Signals and brake lights were upgraded to LEDs along with clear signal lenses which completes the look along with the signature /5 series headlight.


Although it was produced between 1969 and 1973, the /5 already had its form set in 1965. It’s design language is heavily influenced from 60s style.

The shocks have been switched with modern units for a responsive ride, and a slim solo seat (AKA Police Seat) has been used, which goes well with the lines of the short wheelbase.
