1964 BMW R60/2
The bike runs and rides extremely well and starts up on one or two kicks. This is a rare opportunity to own an original paint bike with very low original miles.
This 1964 BMW R60/2, serial number 626208 was delivered on May 14th 1964 to BMW importer Butler and Smith in New York City. Several years ago, it was purchased from the original owner’s wife with 4000 original miles on it.
The tank still retains its original paint, in remarkable original condition. If you look on the bottom of the tank you will still see the original white painted R from the BMW factory pinstriper. After it was purchased, it was completely rebuilt from the ground up.
The motor and transmission were sent out to /2 authority Craig Vechorik at Benchmarkworks. Upon examining the slingers and transmission, and finding them completely clean and nearly unused, he called the owner and told him that this was definitely a 4000 original mile bike. He said the motor and transmission didn't need a rebuild and the slingers didn't need a service as they were so clean. But the owner wanted the motor rebuilt anyway. The transmission was put back together. The cylinders were sent out to Bore-tech, where they were honed and carbide bored and the pistons were machined.
All the electrics work properly, the signals work, the high and low beam work, as does the rear tail light and brake light. The bike is fitted with the somewhat less common Pagusa solo seat.

Every single bike I buy and sell, I personally go through—not someone else. I am the owner operator of my small business, and I take what I do very seriously. I work on the bikes, I ride the bikes.
If you are serious about buying a true collector piece from someone who not only has a passion for these bikes, but works on them, rides them, and collects them then call me. Jokingly people say to me, “these bikes don’t seem so rare as there are so many in your shop” well... I consider myself a custodian for these machines, they should go to people who will love, and appreciate them.
