2011 BVGP Raffle BMW 
The 2011 Bonneville Vintage GP Raffle Bike in process at BMW/Triumph Motorcycles of Salt Lake 

Every year, Bonneville Vintage GP organizer Tom Kullen finds a way to secure and raffle off a vintage race bike as part of the annual Bonneville Vintage GP. Past years have seen some lovely little race-prepped Honda CB160s from Vicious Cycle in Portland, Ore. This year’s raffle bike will be a fully race-prepped BMW R75/5 converted to 900cc specs, with work being done by the crew at BMW/Triumph Motorcycles of Salt Lake.

Once done, this bike will be unrecognizable from stock, receiving a complete and comprehensive engine overhaul, full suspension upgrade, complete fiberglass bodywork from BoxerCafe, upgraded rear swingarm and fully strengthened and gusseted frame. Basically, everything you might need or want for a fully competitive Formula 750/BEARS eligible BMW for AHRMA vintage racing.
