BMW R-Series description

I could tell you this motorcycle has 24,000 and a lot of people might believe that. I am however an honest seller. This is a 1972 BMW R75/5 Toaster tank SWB model. It is all original except for these upgrades, Mikuni Carb upgrade from Rocky Point Cycles, Dyna electronic ignition. I have just done a fresh top end, less than 250 miles on it. When I did the top end I found 10 over pistons in the bores. The cylinders were honed, new rings were fit, the heads were professionally done and everything was assembled with new gaskets. Keep in mind this is a 40+ year old machine and it exhibits some scratches and blemishes, no dents, and the paint is original and shows well.
This classic Beemer features all matching numbers. The fairing, bags, and tour pack are original Wixom Brothers period correct pieces, I have replaced the factory latches which were all worn and broken. The seat is a BMW factory piece. It starts easily and is well sorted. The Metzler tires show little wear. The entire drive train has been serviced and the bike shifts well and the clutch is fine. Brakes are great for drums. Battery is correct and one year old and kept on a tender with the hook up installed. This bike is ready to ride home, even if you live on the West Coast. 
Shipping is up to the buyer, I will assist the shipper. I will not crate or palletize this bike for overseas shipping. If purchased with BIN, I will deliver within 250 miles for FREE and include some spares I have for this machine.
I welcome any questions. So don't miss out and thanks for looking at a well sorted vintage machine.

’50s BMW Scooter Prototype to Star at 2012 Concours di Motociclette

Wed, 23 May 2012 00:00:00 -0700

BMW is entering the scooter market this year with its C600 Sport and C650 GT maxi-scooters, but the German manufacturer almost entered the scooter segment nearly 60 years earlier. In the 1950s, BMW produced a pair of scooter prototypes it called the R10. The first prototype produced in 1953 was equipped with a 175cc Single producing about 8hp while the 1954 prototype (pictured above) was equipped with a 200cc producing about 10hp.

Tom Sykes snapped up a pair of wins at Magny-Cours, setting himself up in good position to capture his first World Superbike Championship at the season finale in Jerez in two weeks. The Kawasaki rider scored his series-leading eight and ninth victories of the season, giving him a commanding 37-point cushion over Eugene Laverty and 38 points ahead of Sylvain Guintoli. Sykes needs only score at least 13 points in total over the final two races at Jerez to secure the championship.

Steve Jobs: Rest in peace

Like me you probably discovered the news of Steve Jobs' death on an iPhone, an iPad or iMac. Years before turning Apple into the cool brand that it is today, Steve Jobs rode round on an old BMW. Apple said his "brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives.
