1970 BMW R60/5 SWB
(Or Best Offer)
For sale is my unrestored original condition and original paint 1970 R60/5 SWB (Short Wheelbase) bike with 29,592 original miles. The second owner of this bike let her sit in a garage from around 1999 to 2013 when I purchased it. At that time I did these things to get her back on the road. Both Top ends done, relined the fuel tank with tank slosh, both carbs rebuilt, new plugs, new throttle cables, new petcocks, forks rebuilt and a monotune all done at Perry’s Motorcycles & Sidecars Fort Worth, Texas. I have the receipts for the above listed work.
Items important to know about the bike:
I Have maintenance receipts from the second owner that start at Cycle Werks of Barrington Illinois from 1976 to 1994. Sometime between 1994 and 1999 the second owner relocated this bike to Texas. This is when the bike sat idle in the second owners’ garage from 1999 to 2013 when I purchased it. I have added a Headlight guard, Flanders engine guards and European handlebars. This bike has the factory Krauser bags, mounting racks. All lights, switches, spedometer and electrical system operate normal. Matching numbers for frame and engine. This bike shows normal wear and tear for its age. During the time when I brought her back to life any parts I removed or replaced I put in a box and will be included in the sale, one of those parts included is a Wixom Faring, the original American handlebars and the mounting hardware. I will take the time to discuss this bike in more detail and will send more pictures to serious buyers only.
