Your featured metallic green BMW R75/5 followed by Mike Taint's letter and photo of his bike stirred my interest. I finished restoring my own R75/5 in the same color a couple of years ago (see picture) and my buddy in Las Vegas, Dave Kosinski, has restored one also. So they may not be as rare as you might think. Perfect for that St. Patrick's Day ride.
