"The BMW R 69 S VIN 658506 was manufactured on February 10th, 964 and delivered on February 14th, 964 to the BMW importer Butler & Smith in New York City. The bike was equipped with a bench seat."
The BMW R69S, roduced from 1960 to 1969, as BMW’s sport bike of its day. With 42 horsepower, t was by far the most powerful bike BMW made at the time. You had to pay to play ($1,564 in 1966), ut that extra money bought you one of the most prestigious motorcycles available in the day.
This is one of my favorite motorcycles of the 1960’s. But I’ll leave the explanation of why that is to Cycle World, ho put it best in a 1962 review:
"Whatever the BMW’s merits in a contest of speed, t is still the smoothest, est finished, uietest and cleanest motorcycle it has ever been our pleasure to ride. To be honest, e think that anyone who would worry much over its performance-potential is a bit of a booby. The R69S is fast enough to handle any encounter, nd it has attributes that are, n touring, nfinitely more valuable than mere speed. All things considered, f we were planning a two-wheel style vacation/tour, he BMW would have to be our choice of mount."
