1973 BMW R75/5 Rebuild: Replace Swing Arm Bearings & Powder Coat

In page 02 BMW R75/5 General Tear Down, I show how to remove the swing arm from the transmission and the rear drive from the swing arm. This page covers removal and replacement of the swing arm bearings and races and the powder coating of the swing arm.

Here’s a link to the page I wrote up.

And a sample of some of the pictures.
