This numbers-matching BMW R60/2 is a truly iconic post-war motorcycle that is finished in period-correct Avus Black and features a 4-speed transmission. The bike has been a recent recipient of a professional restoration for its first time and runs just as wonderfully as it looks! The restoration process was started by analyzing the bike, then carefully disassembling it before painting, rebuilding, and replacing parts where needed. The BMW was stripped to bare metal, then metal finished, painted, wet sanded and buffed to the beautiful, sleek Black finish you see today and also features painstakingly hand-painted white pinstriping on its gas tank and fenders to complete its classic look. The bike’s instrument and carburetor were rebuilt, and a host of new parts were added, including new fuel lines, battery and a new period-correct Steiger seat. Britework was performed throughout, the brakes and forks were serviced, and the bike has been fully sorted. This BMW/R60/2 is now ready for a multitude of uses, from riding on your favorite roads, or showing at classic Motorcycle shows and events. Regardless of use, this BMW is sure to make an excellent addition to the new or seasoned motorcycle collector’s stable of classic motorcycles! The bike includes a tool roll.
In 1961, BMW upgraded the engine of their 600 cc R60 boxer twin and added a /2 to the designation. The /2 series with its Earles Fork has become one of the most collectable post-World War II BMWs. Production continued through 1969, although telescopic fork bikes were produced concurrently near the end of the production run.
