    My 1973 R75/5. I have had it since 1994. Traded my Norton for it.


    Got the uber cool tankbag off German ebay.

    Hey is that the reservoir damn off 28A upstate NY? Rondout or Askokan? I forget the name but I grew up near there every summer.

    Dane-

    the fellow started that up for me; my question is what is it?

    He referred to it as a /2?

    Odd look being "barn fresh" w/ new rubber, ran like a top!

    You’re right, that’s beautiful. I hope it’s never “restored”.

    totally gorgeous. A bike that clean with that even patina and no dents will probably be left as it is. These days owners are smart enough to realize the value of an all original bike.
    My slash2 was never this even. Too many dents and drill holes from various accessories gave me no choice but a restoration. I wanted very much to keep it with the original patina. The R51's are even better looking that the slash2's. THis is one of the coolest old BMWs I have ever seen anywhere!
