BMW produced 2,557 examples of the R50/2 in 1966 – the second most popular year of production. The 494cc engine was good for 26 horsepower (so add a few more for this larger engine), and the bike could hit almost 90 miles per hour.
For more information on the slash 2 BMWs, check out Jeff Dean’s BMW site.
The seller of this example says it’s had the same owner since 1966 and that it has extensive documentation, though it’s unclear if the owner is selling it, if it’s someone helping out the original owner, or if it’s a flipper.
