NOW READ THIS ONE & LOOK AT THE PICTURES CLOSELY, THIS BIKE WAS BOUGHT NEW @ ELLIS CYCLE CENTER IN WINSTON/SALEM NC, CUSTOMER BOUGHT 3 NEW BMW'S OFF OF THEM, A R27 A R50 ONE YEAR LATER TRADED HER IN ON A R69S , ALL THREE BIKES WERE MAINTAINED AT DEALER, AS HE TRADED THEM IN THE DEALER KEPT THEM, ENDED UP SELLING THEM TO GHOST MOTORCYCLES FOR THEIR MUSEUM WHERE THEY SAT FOR YEARS ON DISPLAY, HARD TO IMAGINE A BIKE THIS OLD IN SUCH NICE CONDITION, AMAZINGLY IT WAS NEVER LEFT OUTSIDE, BANGED AROUND IN THE GARAGE, KNOCKED OVER BY YOUR BROTHER OR HAD BOXES STACKED ON TOP OF IT..... ASSOCIATE OF MINE BOUGHT TWO OF THE BIKES FROM THE MUSEUM WHEN THEY LIQUIDATED SOME INVENTORY, OF COURSE HIS WIFE HAS A NUTTY.... THATS WHEN I GOT A PHONE CALL TO BUY HIM OUT OF THESE OR HE WAS GOING TO GET DIVORCED..... ( HE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN THE DIVORCE THEN & GOT IT OVER WITH) ((SHE EVENTUALLY LEFT HIM ANYWAY BECAUSE HE LOVED MOTORCYCLES MORE THAN HER)) NOT A BAD STATEMENT.........NEVER HAD A MOTORCYCLE GET JEALOUS OF ANOTHER MOTORCYCLE.... BUT ANYWAY..... THIS BIKE IS STOCK DOWN TO THE TIRES, NEVER DOWN ALLWAYS IN HEATED STORAGE, PRETTY MUCH IMMPECIBLE CONDITION....... (CHECK PICTURES) GAS TANK IS SEALED ON INSIDE (SPOTLESS) PAINT IS JUST GORGEOUS!!! CHROME IS UNRESTORED & ALSO IMMPECIBLE.. STOCK DOUBLE SEAT, EARLS TYPE FORKS, ORIGINAL TIRES, ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE FROM DEALER FROM 1968 WITH TRADE IN. ......HAVE ORIGINAL OWNERS MANUAL, COPY OF BILL OF SALE FROM DEALER ON THE R50 FIRES UP FIRST KICK, RUNS GREAT!!! (PUT SOME RACE FEUL IN HER SO SHE WOULDNT GUM UP...... , THE R50'S GRIPS ARE A LITTLE CRACKED......OTHERWISE BIKES ARE IMMACULATE (I DONT SAY THAT LIGHTLY OR OFTEN) JUST LOOK AT THE PICTURES.... THEY TELL THE REST OF THE STORY...... IF YOU WANT ONE OF THE NICEST BMW /2 BIKES IN THE WORLD, UNRESTORED, UNMOLESTED, PRETTY MUCH UNTOUCHED HERE YOU GO!!!
