1973 lwb r75/5 $3600

Up for sale is a nice running LWB r75/5. Matching numbers. With title. 56k on speedo. I believe it may have originally been a euro cop bike. I purchased it, already owning a /5. I was considering turning this one into something more sporty, but finances dictate I sell. Starts right up. Shifts great. Has had 2k in mechanical work on it in the last year (previous to me acquiring it-i have all receipts, ie new clutch plate, shaft seal, main seal, steering head bearings, steering and wheel alignment). The bike is not concourse quality, but a head turner anyhow. It has the desirable cop seat and rack with krauser bags. It has a large /6 tank on it (great paint but has 3 dings-which I'd recommend having rubbed out. Will need knee pads. Cosmetically the bike is pretty clean. Short sport BMW bars. The bucket has a dent as well as the bucket ring. The tachometer has spun it's needle. I've pulled the fenders and tail light, prepped for prime, but haven't gotten around to painting them. Headers/mufflers are pretty clean with a few minor dings. There are a few busted fins on the underside of right cylinder (not viewable unless lying on your back under bike). There was a low speed wobble that I may have just addressed by correcting the steering damper. Need to ride it more to verify. The tires will need to be replaced (the front is ok in the short term). No side stand.

I'm in Whitley City, Kentucky. Would potentially be willing to drop off in asheville or knoxville area.
