Thread: New member from St Louis

    New member from St Louis

    In my small journey (54 miles away) I went to buy a dirt bike. I started talking with the owner and he said he had an old BMW in his garage. I asked if I could see it, the bike looked pretty decent. I then convinced him to sell it to me. I did of course verify that the engine kicked over. It's an R75/5. The vin plate has a build date of 12/69 so i would assume it would be a 1970.
    I've sourced the fuel tank knee pads and a few other missing parts. I did get it running also.

    I did buy the Yamaha dirt bike also.
