Bmw r5?

Anybody knows what type BMW this bike is ?
Looks a lot like a R51, but all the pictures I have seen of R51's
have a plunger rear suspension. This one has nothing...

I think it's an R5. The R6 or R61 had the rear suspension.

Yep , you are right. I just googled R5 , and lot's of pictures

Must be around 1936 or something

Actualy, after a bit of investigating it does say R5 on the
headstock tab.....

Thank you Sir
