1973 BMW R50/5

In 1964, BMW made the crucial decision to continue making motorcycles, recognizing in the process that a complete redesign of its range would be required. Once committed, BMW lured engineer Hans-Günther von der Marwitz away from Porsche to complete the makeover. 

The /5 series was the first series to be manufactured completely in Berlin, as by 1969 all of Munich's production capacity was needed for automobiles. Berlin with its well-trained workforce was an obvious choice. So in 1969 the Berlin Plant started production of the all-new BMW /5 Series, a completely new design and construction following a modular principle all the way from the suspension to the flat-twin power unit.

This BMW R50/5 motorcycle is original and unrestored, its in running condition with new battery. Papers are in order and it has matching numbers with Data Dot.
Will be sold with a full 20 point check and serviced prior to the new owner taking delivery.
