1963 BMW R-Series R60. It was in a Chicken Coop for last 20 years, mechanically is perfect as it just left factory yesterday. The bike cold starts with first kick and idling smoothly,. When running it is dead silent even when clutch is pulled; the comment was given “It ran like an electronic motor!!” . If you wondered how a /2 should sound while it idles, this is the textbook example. This bike has original steel factory straps, wires are clean and unmolested! This bike is so original and function so well, It was parked year ago due to coil failure and (we installed a new one from Germany). It was stored correctly and inside tank is MINT!! Therefore, we decided leave this beautiful patina along and focused on the mechanic. And the new owner can ride while do the cosmetic as his/her choose. All electronic and lights works, lots of period goodies include a nice EURO NAGURA bars, And we have gone through the whole bike with our high standard shop ready for road service, works performed were as followed:

New Coil from BOSH
New horn, New Bulbs.
Serviced brake shoes, both front and back.
New fuel lines.
Cleaned/Re-built both carburetors with new gaskets.
Safety checked/re-torqued on every single nuts and bolts on the whole bike.
Re-adjusted front brake setting. Ensured all the wiring/lights functional.
Re-set valve gaps to spec. Re-set ignition timing/gap.
Sealed 6 volt battery from our inventory,
New spark plugs.
Replaced all fluids (TWICE) (Engine, transmission, driveshaft, and final drive). Cleaned/lubed all the cables.
This bike wears this 50 years old patina paint lost, and paint touch ups, and front and rear fenders are still very solid. The inside of the gas tank is clean with factory red paint still attached. There are 2 dents on top of tank and there is no key for tool box( inside contents unknown).
