BMW R75/5, R60/5 & R50/5 Horns

1972 /5

The /5 series came equipped with two different styles of horns. The 1972 model, like the one shown to the right, came with a chrome grill mounted on the horn. Other model years were equipped with a horn as seen below.

Many other horns of all types have been fitted to /5s. Many people mount air-horns on their optional crash bars. In a pinch, one can also acquire a horn from the local automobile junkyard. Even a horn from an old Volvo will work. It looks similar to stock, and is slightly louder.
