Re: Older BMWs
I had a 1972 R 75/6 (750 cc), with full fairing, saddle bags, rear carrier, cost me $2200.00 off the showroom floor. My all time favourite bike. All I ever did to it was change the oil & filter, adjust the valves, replace air filter & plugs, scrape the frost off of the seat, and ride it.
I also had a 1976 R 90/6 (900cc). More zip than the 750, but not as much character, maybe because it was not as pretty, no fairing, bags, or rear carrier and don't have as many good memories riding it. But would still love to have it back. Don't remember doing much to it other than basic service.
Neither one rode like the LT or the RT, but they were still great bikes, and so much cheaper.
