Here is perhaps the most sought after model of vintage BMWs. A 1962 R69S with Ural or Dnepr sidecar. The bike has sidecar gearing installed now but the stock 37/11 gearing goes with it. The previous owner had this rig for 22 years and mostly used it about town to take his dog for a ride in the sidecar. He did not use it the last two years because somehow the sidecar is out of alignment causing the handlebars to wobble at low speed so the sidecar needs to be tweaked for proper alignment. I have a clear MA Title in the previous Owner's name as I bought the bike late summer and did not register it. There is a slight snafu as the Title shows mileage as 60. 23 when the Title was transferred in 1993 and odometer reading today is 41. 59. I really don't think the previous owner put more than 5. 00 miles on the bike and when I questioned him about the discrepancy he said when he bought it the owner signed the Title in the kitchen and just guessed at the mileage. If I retitle it in my name the DMV will say it has 141. 59 which it does not have. Otherwise the bike is pretty decent. some previous owner polished it to the point that some of the white pin striping has been worn off. New tire on the front and on the car. This bike is unmolested and unrestored. About as pure an example of an original R69S as you can find. It ran nicely last year and I have not started it yet this year. The right carb did drip a little and the bike could probably use a tune-up. The serial number is the same on the engine. frame and head badge. You are welcome to come and inspect before bidding. Cash on pick up is preferred. One of these apart just sold on Ebay for $10. 00 item # 171712262351 and another $17. 69 item # 161616821154 and a third sold for $13. 00 item # 301536345804. I am starting this one ridiculously low at $8. 00 so somebody is going to get a good deal. Feel free to contact me if you would like to view the bike. If you are the winner and for any reason you don't like the bike when you come to fetch it. you don't have to buy it and I will contact the under bidder. I am an honest seller with almost 10. 00 positive feedbacks.
