Helmet Dähne's TT winning (factory
class) BMW 750cc Imola racer. In 1972 the German mechanic turned racer rode this
BMW R 75/5 based TT racer to victory in the legendary 200 mile Imola. The engine
was stripped back and lightened, the bodywork all handmade and the frame
The BMW was under 150kg it weighs
around the same as many of todays 250cc road bikes. The reworked R 75/5 boxer
engine produced a massive 75bhp which is a few more horses than Honda's CB750K.
Combine that figure with a weight advantage over the CB750 of over 70kg and you
can imagine how much of a beast this bike actually is.
