I got a guy who wants my boat and he has a 72 BMW R65/5? that he wants to trade maybe some dough too. I dont know crap about beemers. Any info you guys could give would be great. I have not seen the bike yet. I would like to hear your ideas, see pics and get info from owners, guys who have worked on these bikes etc, so let me have it. Thanks ya Jerks:D
Double check the year and/or model. The /5 series stopped in '73 (or so) and the R65 didn't come out until 1980 (or so). I think the /5 bikes are cool as shit. They have drum brakes and I'm fairly sure the top ends are interchangeable (R50 can get 750 top end). Since BMWs run forever, watch out for clapped out bikes with a trillion miles that are in need of a lot of work.
