1976 BMW 75R/6


  • Professionally restored to a very good standard
  • Retains a number of period original features like the BMW panniers 
  • We’re informed that it has only covered around 500 kilometres since it was restored
  • The vendor reports that it runs and rides really well

The Appeal

Renowned for their elegant engineering solutions, solid build quality and strong performance, BMW have produced motorcycles with horizontally opposed twin cylinder engines for a century. The 75R/6 is a fine machine and makes a great choice for those searching for a usable classic bike. 

Here we have a nicely restored 1976 example that reportedly rides very well indeed. The vendor points out the impressive attention to detail adhered to during the restoration process; sourcing rare original parts to ensure that this 75R/6 is as close to factory spec as it could possibly be. Presented in fantastic overall condition and with apparently just 500 kilometres covered since its restoration, this is a great example that we’re sure will be a welcome addition to any collection.

The History and Paperwork

  • Previously restored to a high standard
  • Accompanied by various invoices for parts sourced during the restoration 
  • Road registered in Spain
  • We’re informed that it has only covered around 500 kilometres since it was restored
  • We’re unable to confirm whether the 67,099 kilometres indicated on the odometer is correct

The Condition

  • Beautifully repainted in the original BMW colour with the correct tank pinstriping
  • All ‘BMW’ badging and the ‘750 cc’ vinyls present really well
  • Very little wear evident to the pegs, controls or grips
  • The seat and knee grips are in fantastic shape, with barely any signs of use
  • No dents visible in the tank or frame
  • No obvious damage apparent to the mudguards
  • We couldn’t see any corrosion or frame damage
  • Equipped with genuine original and unrestored BMW panniers which remain in great condition
  • All the chromework is in nice shape
  • The controls and instrumentation present well
  • The wheels are really smart although we note that the tyres are quite perished in places
  • Equipped with lights, mirrors and a registration plate for road use

The Mechanics 

  • 750 cc horizontally opposed twin cylinder, four-stroke engine
  • Five-speed gearbox
  • Disc brake on the front wheel with a drum at the rear
  • The battery is apparently one year old ad in good order
  • Fitted with an electrical cut-off switch
  • The engine casings present well, with no corrosion or damage apparent
  • The vendor informs us that it starts, runs and rides without fault
  • We’re told that it doesn’t get hot, always starts and ticks over smoothly at idle
  • The gears are said to select smoothly and the brakes work well
  • We understand that all the bike’s mechanicals were overhauled during the restoration


If you’re after a well restored ‘70s bike that’s ready to be used, then this BMW 75R/6 is a great option. Presented in fantastic condition both cosmetically and mechanically, all that’s left to do is to put some kilometres on it.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
