R75 Vs 42WL / CB500 vs Bonneville

After riding a ninja 250 for about 2 years I've finally decided to buy a cafe type motorcycle and a old military type motorcycle with a sidecar.

I was looking at the classic WWII motorcycles and the most prominent seem to be the BMW R75, Harley 42WL, and the Indian 741. Can someone give me some information on these bikes with respect to reliability, ease of maintenance/parts, durability, and price? Out of the 3 which one would you choose?

For the old cafe type motorcycles I was looking to buy either triumph bonneville or the cb500. With the same question as above, which would you prefer to buy with respect to reliability, maintenance, durability, and price? Are there any other type of cafe racer bikes you would recommend?
