I have too many Bikes and Cars. Over 8 or 9 combined and when I saw this real diamond in the rough, all it needed was some cutting to make the diamond shine. Some little cosmetics, I just had to have it.

as it goes around, and so it comes around…mfischer

Only 24k on the bike. What a deal, very low miles on this bike, It has a New York title and I have not had it long enough to transfer it over to PA.

R75/5 TOASTER BMW 1973 SCRANTON, PA 120 miles from Philly and NYC.. With only 24000 miles, I was told that Hermy’s (Port Clinton, PA) rebuilt the engine as well as having low miles. The engine starts and runs like a complete new one. I have had a new R90 from the same year, and it starts and runs like that R90 that I bought new. This is a nice and reliable airhead as any I have ridden, purchase or sold. (I have had about 8 in the last 20 years)

Well, it was cold in October when I got a call from a friend that a R75/5 was for sale and I always wanted one. This one was on Craig’s list near Elmira, New York.

My friend, Joe B and I, got into my Prius, added the trailer, some candy bars, a few waters and left from Scranton, Pa . A mere 3 hours away to Elmira NY. . It was really blowing, snorting, and the wind was a whipping. We got to the GPS address and saw the “Toaster” Just sitting in the wind and on the iced driveway.

As we approached the door swung open and this older “Hippie” Type guy came out, said a couple of words, and started it up and drove it over the farm road out front, through all of the gears up the road and back.

After a minute of standing out and freezing we came to a price, loaded it on the back of the trailer and departed. It really was cold.

During the brief frozen conversation he stated the following.

  1. He bought it from his friend down the road, these people were really in the woods. The man was a collector of BIKES and he wanted to sell this R75/5
  2. Engine was rebuilt by Hermy’s BMW in PA, new pipes and mufflers, new battery. Looks likes rims and spokes as well. This very anxious hippie, did not have time for the toaster as he had a yard full of cars, tractors, wood harvesting stuff, tractors and Harleys. His loss that frozen day in New York state, was my gain, or your gain. I do sell a lot of bikes when I get special ones like this and I wanted a R75/5 for a long time.

It really is a nice Airhead, and the people who did the restoration did a great job on the mechanical, the fenders need striping and that is all this needs, it is a great bike, When I sell it I will cover my costs only. It has the wide handle bars and knobby tires as the previous guy bought it for riding the back roads around Elmira, New York. I have been riding it here in NE PA along the same type of roads and it is a blast to ride.

OK…….. call me or text 570 815 6294, current price is $4500 and I can deliver it

I got her back to Pa, startered it up, and the first day it wasn’t snowing put about 50 miles on it (still has the NY registration), as I have not changed it over. Realized than I have too many cars and bikes and decided that as good as this air head is, (It is the best I have driven, shocks, suspension, engine etc) I don’t need it, so I am selling it. To many other cars, bikes etc.

It seems everything is there, frame is good except near rear spring shackles, not rusted through but may need some attention.

(Here in NE, Pa there lives two 1967 Broncos.

One is under restoration with a new wiring harness, new power brakes, new disc brakes. radiator and now has power steering. new paint and about to get radio, interior and a convertible top. New rebuilt 289 will be installed in January 2021.

Bronco 1967 v-8 302 and 1967 170cI 6cyl . One under restoration and the other is ??? BAD Blue baby, well, it just is. It may be for sale….needs everything but frame, engine, trans, Top, wheels and dash. Has 40K on speedo. Engine started and ran good for 2-3 minutes off a bottle.

Here in Moscow, PA, is located the V-8 orange beauty. and her cousin, bad blue.

Than there is the “Blue” baby 170 6 cyl that I have gotten from a barn. Needs full restoration, doors to tub. Got the engine started and running for 2 MInutes, Ran good and clean and smooth, ran it from a bottle, last owner said it was running when he backed it under the shed 6 years ago. He has put oil in the cylinders every year. Said the frame was god but near the rear spring shackles may have to be patched, not rusted through yet. Carb was clean when I took it apart. no ethanol gas was used in the carb.

Carb was clean when I took it apart.

Current price is $4000, this may be changed as I do work on it or I can also send it out for restoration which will cost 15K plus the engine or possible trans work. Than I will have 20k into it or 10,000 less that the other. It has no title but easy to get in PA . Speedometer shows 40K, started it and ran for 30 secs, cleaned carb, filed points, oiled the cylinders, added gas from a bottle and it started up. no smoke, engine sounded good and smooth. Has extra windshield Most all parts are there.

Most people don’t realize that the insturment cluster is worth $1,000, and the good top it has is worth $1000 etc. So when your thinking how much $4000 is, go look at one for sale.

You will need a whole body for it for about $10,000 frame seems ok pitted but all there, looks l1ke a small hole near the rear spring shackle

If you are serious about this unit, you can call me at 570 815 6294

MG sold,.

Well after all new interior, top etc and engine, I was tired of working on this little car. It went to a selected owner.

77 MGB, new engine, top and interior, all new with OVERDRIVE

FOR SALE……. 1974 TR6 TRIUMPH WITH OVERDRIVE..8/24/20

I have finally decided that it is time to sell this great car.

1974 TR6 with 50K, very clean no rust, With Overdrive, (BIG DIFFERENCE) , original miles I have had this for over 10 Years, and have replaced almost everything needed as like brake cylinders, Total front end redone, Interior carpets and seats, Flushed engine, Body repainted 5 years ago and is clean and smooth. Has Michelin Red line tires (Older) Underbody sprayed and painted 5 years ago. Replaced Electrical as needed, hydraulic brake and clutch cylinders. and I have only run non-ethanol in the engine and carbs. This is a smooth running British Cars that runs and performs like new. Top is serviceable but is kept down, has boot cover.

This is a driver, I have put 20,000 miles on this car and is extremely dependable and always garaged. I have driven it to Florida and back 2 times, and the midwest once. Just a great driver and pretty much bullet proof. Unlike MGB’s, this is a reliable and simple but powerful car (yes, almost 110 HP) the 6 cylinder with over drive is very smooth, the new front end (2000 miles on it) has made a big difference.

MGTD 1952 all restored by owner

45 horses, but is a blast to drive, all new engine and trans, tires, top etc.
