Replacements for the BMW ‘/5’ series, the ‘/6’ series arrived in October 1973. The newcomers were more sportily styled than the outgoing range, boasting new side-panels and silencers, and totally restyled controls and instruments. Like their predecessors, the three ‘/6’ models shared an identical stroke; the 500cc model though, had been dropped, while at the top of the range was a new 900cc superbike: the R90S. After three years the ‘/6’ line-up was replaced in the autumn of 1976 by the ‘/7’. The R90S fuel tank shape (adopted across the range) and redesigned rocker covers were distinguishing features, while at the top of the range, 980cc R100 models replaced the ‘90’ series. The BMW twin found a ready market with police forces worldwide, for whom its legendary build quality and reliability were major attractions. This ex-police R75/7 has enjoyed just three owners in ‘civvy street’. In the vendor’s possession since 1988, it was in regular use until placed in storage circa 3-4 years ago, yet fired up readily when started recently. The machine is offered with Swansea V5C.
