1969 BMW R60/2
Frame no. 1817474
Engine no. 1817474
Introduced in 1960, BMW's 'Slash 2' range of flat-twins was marked by a revised engine, which received a strengthened crankcase and crankshaft, hard-chromed piston rings, improved internal ventilation, new cam followers and a stronger clutch assembly. The 600cc R60's compression ratio went from 6.5:1 to 7.5:1, boosting peak power to a useful 30bhp. As always, BMW's shaft final drive and understessed mechanicals translated into a sophisticated, reliable ride for the long run. "A unique form of motorcycling," wrote Cycle World magazine in a 1968 test. "What other machine could be so silent, so free from vibration, so effortless at cruising speeds?"

This R60/2 belongs to a famous classic cars and motorcycles collection located in Florida. The bike was kept in museum-like condition since the current owner bought it about 10 years ago. Already being in great condition at the time of the purchase, the bike just needed couple of services throughout the years to maintain its stunning condition.
