1962 BMW R69S

Up for sale is my 1962 BMW R69S.  This machine has been a joy to ride and show. but I have recently purchased a small collection of vintage motorcycles and parts so I am reluctantly passing it on for someone else to enjoy as much as I have.

This is a triple number matching (engine. frame and ID tag) motorcycle that has received a high level cosmetic restoration and top end rebuild.  It runs and shows beautifully.  

Mechanically. it's a first kick motorcycle.   The engine pulls like a freight train and holds an impossibly low idle (points and condenser are new).  The transmission is silky smooth and completely free of the all too common BMW clunk.  The brakes were serviced including complete disassembly and cam lubrication.   They do their job exceptionally well.   The suspension is original and feels great.   Hitting the twisties is a joy and there is absolutely zero wobble at any speed.   I've owned a number of Earls Fork BMWs over the years and this the best I've been on.   It just feels right. like it did back in 1962.  

Cosmetically. the bike is one of the finest I've seen anywhere.   The paint and bodywork are beautiful. There are zero dents. dings or scratches.   Even the inside of the tank is spotless.   The entire exhaust system was replaced with stainless parts. the original Weinmann alloy rims have been laced with stainless spokes. and a stainless bolt kit was installed as well to insure the beauty of the motorcycle for years to come. All rubber has been replaced. including tires. and a new battery was installed in the spring.  

The bike is equipped with the desirable 6. 5 gallon Schorsch Meier Sport tank. a period Flanders side stand and genuine Hella bar end turn signals with genuine Hella orange and red lenses.  It's becoming difficult to find a quality R69S as an increasing number of people discover and snap up these beautiful and quite ridable vintage machines.  This is an opportunity to pick up one of the best examples I've seen on the market.  

This motorcycle has a clear title.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions you may have.  I'm happy to go into further detail via email or my cell at 917 797 3380.

The buyer is responsible for shipping charges and arrangements.  I will make every effort to facilitate a smooth transaction on my end.
