    Maybe somebody here got it? And we'll hear once it's in the bag.

    And a timing chest cover! But for that price, there's a lot of meat on the bone.

    Oddly I bought this one after a price reduction and now sits in my garage. Nice bike. Needed some TLC, removed the 83 attempt at smog control ( secondary air system), cleaned the carbs, adjusted valves, new front tire... runs like a champ, does not burn a drop of oil. Very happy with it. Lots of life left in these old bikes at a decent price.. :)

    Nice bike. I think if it were someone here it would be in the FM before CL.

    What are these forks???

    https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/mcy/5974884539.html

    73 BMW R75/5 w/ Sidecar - $7800 (Portland SE Foster/Arleta)

    I am motivated to let this bike go. This is a screaming deal and much less than i paid for it 2 yrs ago. (I've barely put 1000 miles on it.) This machine is a beauty.


    Ok, this is hard to do. If you are looking you probably know a thing or two about old BMW's. I bought this from the 2nd owner since it was rebuilt.. Runs like a top. Neither of us put many miles on it. I have a very extensive 'blog' word document that i can share with any interested party that outlines the entire procurement and build of this machine, with color commentary.

    Here are some specs:

    73 BMW R75/5 Short Wheelbase frame and engine
    /6 5 speed transmission and rear gearing.
    Unit Forks 'Earles Style' Forks
    /6 dual disc front brakes
    'Easy Rider' Sidecar
    Good condition Wixom fairing and saddle bags! Rare!
    Great package, runs great, starts every time.
    I have extensive digital documents of the re-build and hack job.
    Clear title in hand.

    Hack BMW Triumph sidecar motorcycle vintage

    That one has been listed for quite a while now, both on C/L and elsewhere.
    I have been watching for a price drop, though . . .

    And it is pronounced more or less as "pyoo-allup", though some locals lean towards sounding more like "pewalup"

    It's "pyoo-AL-up". That one's our best tell-tale for outsiders. They all call it "poo-YAL-up".

    Just like the ad states, they are Unit Forks, Earles style forks. "Unit" being the make.

    That's an inmates bike. It's also for sale in the main Flea Market. I think he's got it listed for a few bucks cheaper for fellow inmates but I'm not sure. It's worth checking. Either way, it's a damn fine rig that i wish i had the funds to buy.

    been on CL for a while now. I've been tempted to go take a look at it, because a running /6 for 2k seems like a good deal. The price keeps dropping though.

    1974 BMW R60

    condition: good
    engine displacement (CC): 599
    fuel: gas
    odometer: 42000
    paint color: orange
    title status: clean
    transmission: manual

    1974 BMW R60 /6
    600 cc Motorcycle Air cooled 2 cylinder boxer engine
    2 nearly new Dunlop K70 tires.
    Custom padded contour seat (Corbin?), Luggage rack, BMW and Haynes Manuals
    Frame and engine numbers match. spare parts available.
    This bike is a looker, I get comments all the time when I am riding it. the bike starts, runs, drives, has flaws, has patina, true mileage unknown. ODO says 42K TMU. (erratic odometer behavior witnessed)

    Don't bother with low ball offers, no trades, no test pilots, no checks, no shipping, no paypal, local CASH transaction only.

    You are not going to get this bike for $500, so don't waste my time.

    is it still available? yes, of course, currently in storage but accessible.
