At the end of 1954, BMW replaced its existing twins range with the R50 and R69. The engines were little altered, significant changes being concentrated on the frame and cycle parts, which now featured an Earles-type leading-link front fork and swinging-arm rear suspension. The R67/2, a lower-compression model much favoured by sidecarists, was not replaced until the arrival for 1956 of the R60, which used a low-compression version of the R69 engine. The sidecar market remained an important one for BMW, and the new front fork's bottom link incorporated alternative mounting points giving suitable trail should a 'chair' be attached. In 1960 the flat-twins range was revised as the '/2', most of the changes being inside the engine, which received a strengthened crankcase and crankshaft, hard-chromed piston rings, improved internal ventilation, new cam followers and a stronger clutch assembly.

This 1967 R60/2 combines the elegantly traditional looks of 1960s BMWs with the power and convenience afforded by a more modern R100/7 engine dating from 1979, which with 59bhp on tap has more than double the maximum output of the original. The conversion, undertaken for previous owner Chris Bond by Larry Junge of Bavarian Cream Restorations in Boring, Oregon, USA during 2006/2007, included fitting the front fork and twin-disc front brake from an R90S. Offering all the style of a classic BMW together with the power and reliability of a modern 'Beemer', the machine is offered with US Certificate of Title. EU import duty is payable on this Lot.

    À la fin de 1954, BMW remplaça sa gamme de twins existante par les R50 et R69. Les moteurs furent peu modifiés, les changements les plus significatifs concernant le cadre et la partie cycle qui comprenait désormais une fourche avant Earles à roue poussée et une suspension arrière à bras oscillants. La R67/2, modèle moins comprimé très apprécié par les sidecaristes, ne fut pas remplacée avant l'arrivée pour 1956 de la R60 équipée d'une version moins comprimée du moteur R69. Le marché du side-car était important pour BMW et les nouvelles liaisons inférieures de la fourche avant incorporaient des points de montage alternatifs donnant une chasse différente dans le cas où un side-car serait attelé. En 1960, la gamme des flat-twins révisée fut désignée « /2 ». La plupart des changements se situaient dans le moteur qui bénéficiait d'un carter et d'un vilebrequin renforcés, de segments de piston chromés, d'une ventilation interne améliorée, de nouveaux poussoirs et d'un embrayage plus robuste.

    Cette R60/2 1967 combine l'élégance traditionnelle des BMW des années 1960 à la puissance et à la commodité d'utilisation du moteur R100/7 plus moderne (1979) qui, avec ses 59 ch, est plus de deux fois plus puissant que l'original. La transformation effectuée par le précédent propriétaire, Chris Bond, par Larry Junge de Bavarian Cream Restorations à Boring, Oregan (USA) en 2006-2007 s'est accompagnée du montage d'une fourche avant et d'un frein avant à double disque de R60 S. Offrant tout le style d'une BMW classique avec la puissance et la fiabilité d'une moderne « BM », la machine proposée avec son titre de circulation américain est soumise au paiement des droits de douane applicables aux importations dans l'EU.
