Price: $35,250 Negotiable

This 1975 BMW 2002 is a modified example powered by a 1.8-liter M42 inline-four fitted with individual throttle bodies and linked with a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Finished in silver over black, the car has been fitted with Turbo-style wheel arch flares, a front air dam, a rear spoiler, and an early-style rear bumper. Additional modifications include Recaro seats, 15×9″ BBS wheels, Ground Control coilovers, Koni shocks, and Ireland Engineering sway bars. Approximately 20k miles have been added by the seller since acquiring the car five years ago, and the fuel injectors, fuel pump relay, and battery were replaced in March 2020. The accompanying 1975 R75/6 has been modified in a cafe racer style and features a shortened rear subframe, a custom-fabricated seat, 18″ and 19″ wheels with gold spokes, and more as detailed below. This 2002 and R75/6 are now offered by the seller with a matching trailer, records from current ownership, a helmet, and clean California titles for the vehicle, motorcycle, and trailer. The seller notes that a portion of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity.

The exterior has been repainted Moonstone metallic silver and fitted with Garagewerks 2002 Turbo-style fender flares, a front air dam sourced from Jaymic BMW parts, and a black Ireland Engineering rear spoiler. The antenna was deleted, and vinyl M-stripe pinstripes were added, along with an early-style chrome rear bumper, a Cibie third brake light, and Euro-style front turn signals. Various dents, scratches, and other imperfections are noted by the seller, who notes that a crack in the windshield has been repaired. Several images from a Speedhunters photo shoot in 2017 are also viewable in the gallery. The luggage rack shown in many of the photos is not included in the sale.

The 15×9” BBS magnesium wheels feature BBS center caps as well as gold centers with polished lips and are wrapped in Kumho Ecsta tires sized 205/50. Stopping power is provided by front discs with 250mm rear drum brakes sourced from an E21. Front hubs from a 2002tii have also been added along with 12mm front and 15mm rear wheel spacers. Suspension modifications are said to include adjustable Ground Control coilovers with Koni yellow struts as well as Ireland Engineering front and rear sway bars.

The cabin features adjustable Recaro front seats and E24 rear seats trimmed in perforated black vinyl with a matching dashboard and door panels. Esty salt-and-pepper carpets have been fitted in addition to a center arm rest sourced from a Honda Civic. A Blaupunkt Frankfurt stereo is installed though the speakers have been removed, and the seller notes that the air conditioning and dome light are inoperable.

A wood-rimmed Nardi Classic steering wheel with a BMW horn button fronts VDO instrumentation including a 120-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and a combination gauge. A pod of auxiliary instruments for voltage, oil pressure, and oil temperature is mounted above the center console, and the five-digit odometer shows just over 73k miles, approximately 20k of which have been added by the seller. Total mileage is unknown.

The 1.8-liter M42 inline-four was installed under prior ownership and reportedly features dbilas individual throttle bodies and chiptune, a coil-on-plug conversion, an E21 radiator, and a straight pipe exhaust with a Scorpion muffler. The seller notes that the battery, evaporation purge valve, ignition coils, fuel injectors, main relay, and fuel pump relay were replaced in March 2020. The fuel tank has reportedly been dented and repaired, and the Behr air conditioning unit is said to be in need of a recharge.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through an E21 five-speed manual transmission fitted with a Z3 short-throw shifter and a limited-slip differential. Additional underbody photos are provided in the gallery below.

The included 1975 BMW R75/6 has been modified in cafe racer style and features a black frame along with a Moonstone metallic silver-painted front fender, fuel tank, and matching custom fiberglass single-seat rear cowl manufactured by Thorsten Strenger in Florida. Additional equipment includes a black leather seat, a de-tabbed frame and Ural headlight bucket, a shortened rear subframe, extended bucket ears, integrated LED turn signals and brake lights, wood-style grips, and chrome bar-end mirrors. A paint-matched large-size Biltwell Gringo helmet and bubble shield will accompany the motorcycle.

The telescopic front fork features rubber gaiters and a ToasterTan Triple Tree mount, while the rear Red Wing struts are mounted to the swingarm on the left and the differential on the right. The 19” front and 18” rear Akront aluminum rims are equipped with gold spokes and wrapped in Michelin tires sized 3.25/19 and 4.00/18, respectively. Stopping power is provided by a single front disc with a cross-drilled rotor as well as a rear drum.

A single AutoMeter 120-mph speedometer is housed in a custom wood vinyl-wrapped bezel above the headlight. The integrated digital odometer shows just under 2,600 miles, all of which have been ridden by the seller.

The 750cc opposed twin features a custom exhaust, dual rebuilt Bing carburetors, K&N air filter pods, and a relocated lightweight battery. Power is sent to the rear wheel through a five-speed manual transmission that has been fitted with replacement gaskets and seals. The seller reports that the engine oil and transmission fluid were changed in April 2020 and notes smoke from the left cylinder head of the engine upon startup after the bike has been sitting on the side stand. A portion of a plastic tarp melted to the left exhaust header after coming into contact with it. A drive-by video of the bike can be seen here.

The included Kendon motorcycle trailer features a black powder coated frame, Moonstone metallic silver-painted fenders with pinstripes, wood slats, and 8” fenders. The matching 16” BBS Mahle wheels are wrapped in Continental tires sized 205/55. The seller notes that the trailer is unable to stand upright due to the size of the fenders.

Two videos featuring the car and bike are presented above, and a short clip of the car driving is below. Additional short driving videos can be seen here and here.
