1972 Alex's BMW R 60/5


Last of the BMW kick starter. All /5 models had both an electric starter and a kickstart pedal. Kickstarts were discontinued on some subsequent models, but kickstarts remained intermittently present up to model year 1980. Having electric starting and telescopic forks, the "slash-5" series was a significant advance over BMW's earlier rather utilitarian motorcycles, and the new bikes appealed to the emerging market for recreational motorcycles.
