In Germany, Standard by Tim Huber0 Comments

This beautifully rebuilt 1951 BMW R51/3 underwent a full restoration in 2013 and is one seriously beautiful collectors machine. The pistons, crank, valves, transmission, rear-end and “much more” have been completely redone according to the seller who I’m more than inclined to believe.
