Chasing Perfection: 1937 BMW R5

This BMW R5 is refined and ready to roll thanks to help from the vintage motorcycle community.

The 1937 R5 (left) and its sister bike, the 1937 BMW R6, previously featured in Motorcycle Classics, March/April 2013. The R6 was restored by John Pavone. Phillip Richter acquired the bike in 2015 from John, as the two are great friends.
