Lot 2003


1959 BMW R60 600cc
Reg. no. XJJ 436
Frame no. 620050
Engine no. 620050
Probably the world\'s most well-known manufacturer of motorcycles, BMWs were developed by a small aircraft factory in 1921. They had the concept of an opposed twin with shaft drive, right from the start of production. The original engines were side-valve but they also developed an OHV and some engines with OHC. The transverse opposed twin is still in production today almost 100 years on. BMW had great success in the 1950s and 1960s with motorcycle sidecar outfits with several world championship wins. The bike in the auction has only had two owners and is matching numbers. Said by our vendor to be in excellent condition, this R60 has recently had a new clutch and piston rings fitted and could make a very sound investment. It is offered with a current V5c and a selection of bills.
