The BMW R75 is a World War II-era motorcycle and sidecar combination produced by the German company BMW. In the 1930s BMW were producing a number of popular and highly effective motorcycles. In 1938 development of the R75 started in response to a request from the German Army.

Preproduction models of the R75 were powered by a 750 cc side valve engine, which was based on the R71 engine. However it was quickly found necessary to design an all-new OHV 750 cc engine for the R75 unit./classic-motorcycle.com

In August 1942 Zündapp and BMW, on the urging of the Army, agreed upon standardization of parts for both machines, with a view of eventually creating a Zündapp-BMW hybrid (designated the BW 43), in which a BMW 286/1 side-car would be grafted onto a Zündapp KS 750 motorcycle.


This motorcycle is a piece of Wehrmacht history from Germany. The prices of the Wehrmacht combinations are rising sharply and offer investors and motorcycle enthusiasts a good opportunity to acquire a piece of history. The machine has papers from Germany and is ready to drive.via/read more: classic-motorcycle.com
