These days, almost anyone can find a specific make and model listed for sale within minutes. What is significantly harder, and often takes weeks or months, is finding the right bike for you. Especially when it comes to classic bikes, the provided documentation can be the difference between a great investment and a never ending hellfire fueled by cash. This gorgeous 1959 BMW R69 has been reasonably maintained with some restoration and paintwork. More importantly however, is the documentation of the actual condition being readily available.
The seller makes it clear that this bike (VIN: 654107) was made to be ridden. For those of you that want a solid base for a nut and bolt restoration, this 8,506 mile example offers a great springboard. However, it could also be bought and ridden to a local meet as is. Whatever your plans for a machine of this nature, we just hope you eventually set it free down a sunny two lane road. The seller seems knowledgeable, and ready to field any questions you may have.
