1973 BMW R75/5

Congratulations to Ken Morris of Rancho Cucamonga for winning Bike of the Month with his 1973 BMW R75/5. Ken won a plaque provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys.

Ken is the fourth owner of this BMW which he bought two years ago. It started it's life being bought from Continental Motorcycles on December 9, 1972 for the base price of $1,995.00 in Los Angeles. It spent most of it's life in the LA, until the third owner lived in New York. Now it's back in So Cal where it belongs.

The bike was 100% complete with all the paperwork, owner's manuals and tool kit still in tact. Normal wear and tear and rust was all that Ken had to take care of.

Ken has been coming to our meets for almost 10 years, and really has brought some nice bikes.

This is the third time he has won Bike of the Month.
Here's the run down:
August 2019 - 1968 BMW R60/2
July 2014 - 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R

Thank you Ken for bringing your R75/5 out for all of us to see. See all the photos in our August 2023 Gallery.
