I am selling this pair of bikes that have been my reliable summer commuter bikes here in Vermont for the last 15 years. I still can’t say which is my favorite. Both put a smile on your face every ride. I have downsized and no longer have the storage. They have been ridden in all weather, including spitting snow and are not garage queens, but true riders bikes. Both have heel kick starters, the R75 a manual choke, the R50 ticklers. Both were restored by the late, famed, antique BMV mechanic David Segal from the Barn at Emerson Motor Works in Rochester, VT. Restorations were in 2006 and 2008. They have been professionally maintained, inspected by Ed Barna of Classic Cycles of Vermont since their restorations. Both VIN and engine numbers match. They have been both happy his and hers and father and son teams.

The R50/5 mileage is 28,974 but still being ridden. Needs rear shock rebuilds. Seat and center stand not stock. No side kick stand, no tool kit, moderate non-structural rust. Some paint chipped.

The R75/6 mileage is 6205 but had new instrument cluster during the rebuild with an estimated 20,000-30,000 miles already on it. Speedometer and odometer not working. Missing one plastic side cover. Seat with old upholstery cracks covered in duct tape. Moderate non-structural rust. Some paint chipped.
