A little rainy around here this morning, so I took the cat instead. The bike is a barn-found 1961 BMW R60/2 with about 23,000 miles. A friend had it and I knew about it, but never saw it until they decided to move. After a little discussion, he asked for $125.00, which I declined in favor of $500. The bike was ugly, but "ran when parked." After a bottom end rebuild and a swapped in replacement transmission, together with new clutch and consumables, this is a very reliable and comfortable ride. It tops out just shy of 80MPH, but it will do that all day long. The R60 shares the stable with a LWB R75/5, an R27, and an R69S. Cheers!
