1972 BMW R75/5 750 CC 47,885 MILES NICE CLEAN , ALL ORIGINAL, TIRES ARE DECENT. The R75/5 could reach 110 mph (177 km/h).[1] Model year 1972 saw the introduction of the 15 L (3.3 imp gal; 4.0 US gal) "toaster" tank with chrome side panels, so named because of its resemblance to a kitchen toaster. The /5 models are air-cooled, four-stroke, opposed-twin (boxer) engines with hemispherical combustion chambers. The engine is built around a one-piece tunnel crank-case. The camshaft is driven by a duplex chain and is located below the crankshaft (unlike the /2 series which had the gear-driven camshaft above the crank). This reversed arrangement improves ground clearance for the same center of gravity and assists lubrication of the camshaft. Valves are actuated by the camshaft through hardened followers, push rods, and rocker arms. The R75/5 comes with 32 mm Bing CV (Constant Vacuum/constant depression) type carburetors. All /5 models had both an electric starter and a kickstart pedal.
