1972 BMW R50/5


1972 BMW R50/5 500cc. Looks to be in very original condition with matching engine and frame numbers and electric start. This is a rare early swinging arm model with metal side panels and speedo in the head lamp. Recently fitted with new speedo explaining the low KM's recorded. Newly machined heads, new valves and  new valve seats. The engine is  fantastically smooth and  mechanically quiet.  Comes with V5C log book and some service parts bills. Ready to ride an enjoy!
