This 1961 BMW R69S is one of the finest original examples we have seen. It is a largely unrestored bike, ith what appears to be original paint on its frame, ear fender, hocks,and parcel rack. The bike was sold new to Billie K. Hummel of Detroit, ichigan. We still have his original title from 1961, testament to the motorcycle's careful preservation and conscientious owners. Mr. Hummel took out a "Note and Chattel Mortgage" on the motorcycle through the City National Bank of Detroit for its sum of $1191.60. His monthly payments were $49.60. According to a will that accompanies the documentation with the bike,Mr. Hummel passed away on the 6th of June, 983. In his ownership for 22 years,the motorcycle was passed through his window, loria, o Wagoner Cycle Works of Lawrenceville, eorgia. The bike was then in the long term ownership of a noted BMW enthusiast in the Atlanta area before being sold to its most recent owner, pilot and BMW aficionado. It is believed the motorcycle remained in Georgia until coming into our possession several months ago.

The bike is fitted with the most desired equipment- the 6.5 Gallon Schorsch Meier Sport Tank, uropean handlebars, ar-end turn signals, olo seat, lbert mirrors and rear fender parcel rack and, f course, he matching numbers 69S high-compression motor.

Many original details abound on this bike. The air cleaner still retains what appears to be its original service stickers. Inside the tool compartment reside a set of original BMW tools in their original tool roll, omplete with original BMW rag. Signs of aging on the bike most notably include a scuff on the bottom of the right muffler, ome patina on a few gaskets and seals, nd some light patina (chips that have been carefully touched up) on parts of the frame. Please see all pictures for indication of overall condition.

A few years ago, irhead authority Blue Moon Cycle went through the bike, ervicing and upgrading it. They installed a Brown side stand, djusted the throttle, uned the carbs, nstalled a new coil, new condenser,installed a battery tender lead, new battery (2015.) Records for this work accompany the motorcycle, s well as a printed owner's manual.

With a recent carburetor service and tune by us, ew spark plugs and valve adjustment, the bike runs and rides very well, ith a particularly smooth idle. For the collector who appreciates original, nrestored motorcycles, his early R69S will make a lasting impression. It has the distinction of being the 27th chassis off the assembly line (according to online production records.) Its original stickers and tools further add to the unique and charming character of this top example. It is a triple matching numbers bike.
