1968 BMW R60US

In Germany, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

The BMW R60US was a 30 horsepower classic that typically included telescopic forks and higher handle bars as part of the “US” designation. US models also came without sidecar lugs, one of the few distinctions that separated it from the Euro models.

The seller of this example (VIN: 1816494) calls it a “beautiful original unrestored/touched patina bike” which was “literally found in farm barn with 7,000 original miles.” The seller has owned it for 12 years and notes that it’s a numbers-matching bike. It’s almost entirely original with the exception of a NOS BMW tool kit, a new rubber cover on the single seat, new Emerald Isle magneto coil, and a replacement stainless steel exhaust system as the original one had rotten out. He concludes by saying that he’d “drive this bike across the US without a 2nd thought,” which would be a hell of a trip!
