1943 BMW R75




BMW and Zündapp used 70% of the same components. This simplifies the supply of spare parts for these vehicles, many of which are still in the hands of historic motorcycle enthusiasts. These vehicles are desirable as collector's items because of their complex and durable technology. A well-restored R75 can be still used for everyday purposes, on or off-road without problems.
