1973 BMW R60/5 SWB Black, Toaster Tank, 55,500 Miles. Very Clean! Top-end just Rebuilt, 10K Service, plus much more! This beautiful Vintage 1973 BMW R60/5 SWB is Very Clean and Factory Correct, except for the new Brown style sidestand. We rebuilt the top end, including new valves and guides and new 1st oversize pistons and rings. We also installed a new timing chain, and front motor seals. The bike was then run 600 Miles, and the 600 Mile oil & filter change, re-torque, and re-tune was been done. It has a pair of new replica /5 mufflers, new steering neck bearings, a new alternator rotor, new battery, new H4 Headlight lens & reflector, new grips, new original Continental braided cloth covered fuel lines, new Replica seat, new tires, plus more. It has just had a Major 10K Service. On the final test ride after we finished the 10K Service, we discovered slightly sticky shifting in one gear. We opened up the transmission, inspected, and decided to replace the whole output shaft assembly and rear output bearing (everything else was Very Good). New seals were installed. While we were there, we went ahead and inspected the clutch (replaced pressure ring for updated style), and inspected and lubed the clutch splines. The paint and stripes are in Very Good condition! The chrome is bright, and the aluminum is clean. There is a replacement tool tray, but no tool kit. The bike starts easily, and runs smoothly and quietly.
