Original 1965 BMW R69S in excellent condition, ith triple matching serial numbers and clear title. This bike was originally purchased new by the local BMW motorcycle dealer. My father bought it from him (around 1980?) with 10,000 miles on it. He put another 8,000 miles on it before selling it to me around 1990. It now has 25,459 miles on the speedometer, hich works perfectly and is excellent condition. I am including everything that came with the bike when I purchased it. This includes a very nice fairing and windshield, nice set of saddle bags with mounting hardware (one bag is missing a roundel), heavy duty fabric motorcycle cover, beautiful chrome engine guard, nd the old original "pudding bowl" helmet. The lining on the chin strap is a bit ragged but the leather side panels are in good shape as well as the bowl and decal that says "Danfa - made in Denmark". Two fork lock keys are included (fork lock works perfectly), s well as two ignition keys (one is the familiar plastic knob type, he other is a key-chain type key). There is also a tank lid key, hich appears to be homemade. The 6.2 gallon sport tank with the tool box on top is very nice with no dents. All pin-stripping is perfect and original, specially on the tank, hich is gorgeous inside and out. All of the paint is original and in outstanding condition, ith the exception of a couple very small scuffs. The large touring seat is comfortable and in excellent condition. Everything works properly on the bike, nd it starts with one kick and runs incredibly smooth and strong. All lights, ncluding bar-end signals, ork fine, s does the horn.The engine has had the oil changed every spring, lthough it typically has gotten less than 200 miles each year since 2005. The cylinder heads had cobalt-alloy Stellite valve seats installed around 20 years ago by a professional motorcycle shop to accommodate lead-free gasoline.
The bake-lite battery box houses a modern 6V battery which slips down inside. The only alteration to the bike is a pad extension on the left side kickstand for better stability, hich can easily be removed to restore the original form. The bike has never fallen over, een spilled or set down; the crash bar nor the valve covers have any scratches on them. The mufflers are perfect NOS (new in 2000) with welded seams, till in excellent shape.
