Footnotes

  • The BMW R75 that the Wehrmacht used so effectively and in such great numbers in every theatre of its operations during WW2 was no mere motorcycle combination but a purpose-built cross-country vehicle. This example of one of the most famous military vehicles of WW2 was imported into the UK circa 2010 from an American collection. VAT and import taxes were paid and the machine UK registered. Since then the engine has been completely rebuilt (including new crankshaft, pistons, bearings, etc) and the differential and frame overhauled by marque specialist, Hans-Peter Hommes (see bill for €14,773.65 on file). Described by the private vendor as in good condition throughout, this magnificent motorcycle wants for nothing and is ready to use.

    BMW R75 Militaire 745 cm3 1943
    Immatriculation n° NXG 543 (Royaume-Uni)
    Cadre n° 765988
    Moteur n° 764516

    La BMW R75 qu'utilisait la Wehrmacht avec tant d'efficacité et en si grand nombre sur ses nombreux théâtres d'opération pendant la deuxième guerre n'était pas une simple motocyclette mais un engin conçu à dessein pour le tout-terrain. Cet exemplaire de l'un des plus fameux véhicules militaires de la deuxième guerre a été importé au Royaume-Uni vers 2010 d'une collection américaine. La TVA et les droits d'importation ont été acquittés et la machine immatriculée au Royaume-Uni. Depuis cette date, le moteur a été complètement refait (vilebrequin et roulements neufs, etc...) et le différentiel ainsi que le cadre révisé par un spécialiste de la marque, Hans-Peter Hommes (voir facture pour 14 773,65 € au dossier). Décrite par le vendeur comme en bon état général, cette magnifique motocyclette ne nécessite aucun soin et est prête à l'usage.
