For many vintage BMW motorcycle fans, there was no sweater airhead than the R 75 — the /5 series especially. In this video from BMW, the history of the R 75/5 is brought to life with a ton of great old footage. For my money, they never did a better looking valve cover on that iconic boxer motor and while my current project is an R 100, there will have to be an R 75 in the mix at some point as well. Enjoy.
