    List of R75/5 threaded hardware?

    I'm freshening up a '72 SWB R75/5 and looking for new hardware. I've found several sources of stainless hardware kits, but nothing that's zinc plated, which is what I want. So..... 2 questions: Does anyone have a complete list of external hardware for this bike (that I can use as a shopping list)? Or, does anyone know of zinc plated hardware kits for sale?


    Thanks for any help!

    I can tell you where to send it to get it cadmium replated & looking nice. A guy that sells on ebay, I think he's "StainlessCycle" or similar there sells SS kits and may have a list for his use . He's in WV.

    Hi Art. You shouldn't have too much trouble find zinc plated metric fasteners. But the OEM fasteners on the /5 were actually cadmium plated.

    Our local Ace Hardware even stock stainless metric stuff which made my "spruce up project" fairly easy. One caution with stainless-on-stainless fasteners... then tend to gall easily, make sure you use an anti-seize lubricant when you assemble them.

    And reduce the torque settings where necessary. The anti-seize tends to allow the parts to slide easier, resulting in on the order of 25-30% higher ending torque.

    check Hucky's site, I think he offers whole fastener kits very affordable for exact series types.

    +1 on that count. > http://bmwhucky.com/0075kits.html

    And he was even kind enough to break his kits down with a published BOM ...
