    Hi, Peter here from COC in England. Love your stuff, does this help?
    https://b-cozz.com/the-factories/ states:- The TMZ-53 had an (almost?) identical frame to that of the BMW R-75 and had other similarities, perhaps from captured or copied examples.

    http://www.wehrmachtsgespann.de/bmwenglisch/bmwe1.htm states; First reparation delivery of 8 BMW R75 to Russia. Last BMW R75 is produced out of the remaining parts and delivered to Russia.

    Did you know that? Keep up the good work! Regards Peter. (Snow drifts in my garage today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Please confirm receipt, thanks.
