So no one needs to guess the obvious, /5 and /6 BMW Air Cooled motorcycles are the bikes that always draw my full attention. First large motorcycle I rode followed by a dozen or more Air Head's including /7’s.

This 1974 R75/6 was bought from the Larry Winkler collection several years ago. Winkler was known for his incredible Porsche collection and the bike was part of that event when it was being sold. Our customer fell in love at the sight of the polished Fuel Tank about four years ago. At the sale, it ran beautifully and was loaded into the trailer. It has resided in his office until recently when another Motorcycle Vision came about, a restored 1950 Speed Twin Triumph. Without the space for two bikes, the BMW was brought to the shop searching for a new owner.

My knowledge is mostly about stock motorcycles but if you have ever put a tool towards restoring an older /5, /6 or /7, you can see the quality and volume of work that went into this bike. It is obvious who ever built the bike had a deep knowledge BMW’s and the top level of skill and craftsmanship to complete the task. The frame and front fork sliders were stripped and prepped for powder coating in bright red and the body work color matched perfectly. The engine has had hours or days of cleaning and reassembly. If I were to guess, there are probably close to 100 hours in the build.

The formed Aluminum Gas Tank is either a custom design or was hand formed. I did a quick search on the Internet and could not find a supplier of this tank but I stand to be corrected if there is someone out there selling these. If not, the bike has a one off tank. The seat and rear Cowl piece are obviously custom as is the Aluminum Air Box Delete Cover. The Carbs have K&N Air Filter as does the breather on the back of the engine.

There are a set of beautiful custom Rear Sets that set off the polished front engine Cover, polished front Brake Caliper, Engine Valve Covers and Polished Billet Upper Triple Clamp. There is a polished Tag on the upper triple clamp that reads; “1974 Luft Kopf”, translated to 1974 Air Head. I have no information on the builder but assume when the bike is listed they emerge.

The selling price is $9,995. The VIN# is 4042151 and miles showing are 37,967. Please come by and see it at Automania LLC, 895 SE Gladiola Drive, Grants Pass, OR 97527. http://www.automaniagp.com 541 479 8888 Oregon Dealer DA1287.
