photoI’ve been chasing this one for nearly a year. BMW 1968 R60/2…….I bought it from the original owner yesterday, only 40k miles…………way cool.

Runs and drives, but, it’s coming apart………. the original owner was unsure if he had ever had the slingers replaced, so I’ll take the motor down to the crank, replace the slingers if needed, replace/repair anything else that needs it. I think that’ll be it…….not sure I have the heart to paint/restore the metal…..one man put every ding and scratch in this thing over the past 47 years, it would be a shame to cover up that history.
