Motorcycles were suddenly becoming a losing proposition, so BMW decided to focus on developing its more profitable automobile business, a move that in time revived the companys finances: It also meant that the BMW motorcycle range got somewhat neglected.The then-contemporary BMW R60/2 was badly outclassed in power and handling by Italian, British and Japanese bikes. The sportier BMW R69S was available with lighter telescopic forks and a few more horses, but it was still pretty sluggish. Both bikes retained such anachronisms as a DC generator, 6-volt electrics and magneto ignition. If BMW was to continue building motorcycles, a radical change was needed. Fortunately, what the company came up became a classic BMW motorcycle - the BMW R60 /5.In 1964, BMW made the decision to stay in the motorcycle business, and lured Hans-Gnther von der Marwitz away from Porsche. It was his job to design the new bikes, which would be built at Spandau, near Berlin, instead of Munich. The Slash 5 series (R50/5, R60/5 and R75/5 of 500, 600 and 750cc) was announced for the 1970 season, and represented a revolution in BMW motorcycle design. Though the flat-twin BMW boxer engine layout remained, just about everything else was new.In the engine, a new forged 1-piece crank with bolt-on flywheels replaced the old built-up, roller-bearing shaft, and used connecting rods borrowed from the 2.8-liter 6-cylinder car engine. The camshaft, formerly above the crankshaft and gear-driven, was moved below the crank and was now chain-driven. Iron-lined light alloy cylinder barrels replaced the previous cast iron types and were capped with redesigned cylinder heads fed by standard slide-type Bings on the R60 and R50 models. Other improvements included an alternator-powered 12-volt electrical system with an electric starter, though the kickstart was retained.A much lighter tubular steel frame featured a large-diameter backbone and duplex tubes with the drive shaft built into the right side of the rear swingarm. Twin Boge rear spring/shock units were adjustable for preload with a simple hand lever. A Sachs telescopic fork of BMW design replaced the Earles fork at the front end. Light alloy wheel rims were attached to alloy hubs with a twin-leading-shoe, 7.3-inch drum front brake and similar sized single-leading-shoe drum rear.In a bid to keep the bikes trim, BMW put considerable effort into weight reduction with extensive use of light alloy and a much lighter flywheel for the single-plate clutch. The overall effect was a machine that, at a little over 400 pounds dry, was much less bulky than the /2, had more power (46hp for the R60/5 versus just 32hp for the R60/2), handled extremely well and had better clearance thanks to the cylinders being farther away from the ground.All in all, the R60/5 is an ideal useable classic. Decent power, predictable handling, excellent build quality and rock-solid dependability make it a bike you can ride regularly with confidence. Simple construction and excellent parts availability make /5s easy to keep on the road, and a large and enthusiastic community of BMW owners is always ready to help you keep your Teutonic steed running.Get Pre-Approved for Financing:↳ Apply at the link below:http://feclv.post2cl.com/financing.php➡ For more information on this unit:↳ Go To the link below:http://feclv.post2cl.com/details.php?vehicleid=1974918Details:Year: 1960Make: *BMW*Model: *R60/5*Mileage: 5209Stock #: U931638~ 1960 *BMW* *R60/5*.This unit is located and easily accessible near the following cities: Las Vegas NV, Henderson NV, North Las Vegas NV, Paradise NV, Apple Valley CA, Lake Havasu City AZ, Mesquite NV, St George UT, Coyote Springs NV, Bull Head City AZ. *4 Doors* *Doors* *Bad Credit* *Bankruptcy* *First time buyer* *no credit* *For Sale* *Clean* *Cheap* *Used* *pre-owned* *Like New* *fair* *good* *great*. *. *2005* *2006* *2007* *2008* *2009* *2010* *2011* *2012* *2013* *2014* *2015* *2016* *2017*. *all prices* *all makes* *all models* *all years*. 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 Alamo Ashland Castro Valley Highlands-Baywood Park Alum Rock Cambrian Park Ben Lomond Boulder Creek Felton Diablo San Lorenzo Alameda Sunol Dublin Brisbane Belmont Burlingame San Martin Campbell Cupertino Fremont Hayward Livermore Newark Pleasanton East Palo Alto Foster City Half Moon Bay Redwood City Menlo Park Millbrae Atherton Los Altos Milpitas Monte Sereno Morgan Hill Mountain View Palo Alto San Ramon Danville San Leandro Union City San Carlos San Mateo Portola Valley Hillsborough San Jose Santa Clara Saratoga Sunnyvale Los Altos Hills Los Gatos Scotts Valley Woodside Bonny Doon Brookdale Norris Canyon Lompico Mount Hermon Paradise Park Zayante La Honda Loma Mar Pescadero Palomar Park Alamo Oaks Kilkare Woods Komandorski Village Mount Eden Russell City Los Trancos Woods Redwood Terrace San Gregorio Sky Londa Highlands Monta Vista Rancho Rinconada Bad Credit Bankruptcy First time buyer no credit For Sale Clean Cheap Used pre-owned Like New fair good great.
