1973 BMW R75/5 Rebuild: Install Swing Arm and Rear Drive

After I got the engine and transmission installed in the frame, it’s time to add the swing arm and the rear drive. Here is the write-up I did for this part of the project.

And, you can find the write-ups for the engine and transmission installation work here:

Here are some of the pictures from the write-up.
