Thanks Armin,

for sure one of the nowadays very rare BMW R 75 Gespann models.

BMW R 75 Gespann https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_R_75_Gespann

I remember our motorcycle friend Theo, who in the 1970s let his "Gespann" drive slowly around in a circle in the "Geländegang", without a driver, also backwards, to the delight of all spectators... 8-)

Still found for little money in the 1980s, today they are priceless collectors' treasures.
I bought two Zündapp KS 750 Gespann in the 1980s from Poland, for just pocket-money, long ago...

The sale at the time was a mistake, but unfortunately, we didn't know any better at the time... :roll:

P.S. A BMW R-75 , or a Zündapp KS-750 was less than 5000,- German Marks back then, still running.
The Poles drove the bikes over here to Germany, sometimes with self-made licence plates.
A Harley WLA , or a Indian 741b was rated at less than 1200,- German Marks, in running condition, the golden years for motorcycle collectors... 8-)

Hi Sturm 78,

that could be a Zündapp BD 250 used by the Hungarian army like on this pic (source: https://www.roncskutatas.com/node/20963).

Best regards

Bert

Indestructible, runs on duck piss for petrol and waste oil for lubrication, a true motorcycle legend! 8-) :thumbsup:
