BMW R-Series description

This is a 1966 BMW R69S sport model.  The engine, frame and ID tag ALL have matching numbers 661164 and comes with a title.  This motorcycle has just had a complete restoration by a certified BMW mechanic who has had many years of experience in restorations.  The engine, transmission and final drive (gear ratio 25/8) were completely rebuilt with ALL new bearings and seals.  The engine had the slingers cleaned.  Anything that needed to be replaced was replaced if not within specs.  The carburetors (matching and correct R69S) were cleaned, blasted and rebuilt.  The frame and frontend was bead blasted and powder coated black.  The frame has the tapered steering head bearings installed.  All of the hardware was cad plated and anything that was chromed was rechromed.  It has a NEW wiring harness.  The sheet metal was in very nice condition and needed very minimal work.  It was bead blasted and painted with a single stage black paint and was hand pinstriped like they were originally.  The fuel tank is the large “sport tank” and the inside is perfect.  The rims are the “Weinmann” aluminum and were laced with Buchannan stainless spokes.  The exhaust is NEW reproduction, but is very nice.  The speedometer is not the original one, as I had the original sent out to get rebuilt but that never happened so I got it back.  I will include the original speedometer which is complete but needs to be rebuilt.  I will also leave the current speedometer in the bucket.  This motorcycle runs great and is very smooth and quiet.  It has less than 50 miles on it since the rebuild and restoration.  I really don’t want to sell this bike, but I live on a gravel road and I refuse to ride this beautiful machine down a gravel road.  This is sold “as is” with no warranty.  A non-refundable deposit of $500.00  is due to my PayPal account within 24 hours of the auction end.  The balance is due by wire transfer or bank check upon picking up the motorcycle.  I can assist with loading the bike or any other way that you may need.  Please ask any and all questions…you may call me direct 952.994.8411…Thank you

BMW Helps Vertically Challenged

Tue, 02 Dec 2008 00:00:00 -0800

No matter where they go or what they do, it seems that people who are vertically challenged always get the short end of the stick, pardon the pun. Historically, if a pint-sized person wanted to get into the hobby of motorcycling, their choices were limited to bikes like the Suzuki Marauder, Ninja 250 or HD Sportster (the thought alone makes my back hurt.) BMW Motorrad now has good news for riders who either need or simply prefer a lower seat height, but do not want to compromise on model choice. BMW is the first motorcycle manufacturer to launch a range of models that can be ordered from the factory with lowered suspension – to provide customers with low seat height options.

European Parliament Makes ABS Mandatory, Tighten Emissions Standards by 2016

Wed, 21 Nov 2012 00:00:00 -0800

The European Parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of new rules that would increase emission standards and make anti-lock braking systems mandatory for all new large motorcycles, scooters and trikes and quads by 2016. The new regulations, which would still need approval from European Union member states, may only directly affect Europe, but they will have a wide-reaching affect on manufacturers’ product development for other markets. BMW, for example, has already made ABS standard for all its motorcycles for 2013.

Michelin Unveils New Tire for Dual Sport Motorcycles

Wed, 06 Feb 2013 00:00:00 -0800

More than half of the new BMW R 1200 GSs that roll off the assembly line in 2013 will be fitted with Michelins new big trail tire, the Anakee III. BMW and Michelin worked together to co-develop the dual-sport tire, which is designed to deliver all the safety and off road capability big trail motorcycle users demand. The Anakee III will also be available as a replacement option for other leading dual sport bikes, like the Suzuki V-Strom, Kawasaki KLR, Triumph Tiger and Yamaha Super Tenere.
