1973 BMW R75/5 Rebuild: Rear Brake Installation

Well, I now have the rear brakes installed and am working on getting the rear sub-frame on the bike. When I get that done, I’m going to move on to the front forks and steering.

Here is the write-up on installing the rear brakes, rear brake pedal and mounting the polished rear wheel with the new stainless steel spokes and the powder coated battery box:

Here’s how the bike looks at this point.

  1. Just wanted to let you know I’m enjoying watching you put it back together.
    Thanks for taking the time for pictures and narrative.

    • Hi Russ,

      Thank you for reading along as this project progresses. It’s always exciting to see the pile of parts take shape again, but a bit cleaner and rejuvenated.

      Best.
      Brook.
