The R69 was one of the lowest production-run models; less than 3,000 manufactured before it became the R69S of which over 10,000 were made. This machine 353589 was produced in the middle of the production run in 1958 and it retains its original matching numbers engine. Just taken back in exchange and very welcome too. New pictures will be published after the workshop have checked it over and they will show the same condition improved with a new stainless exhaust system and mirrors. Restored and rebuilt by an experienced marque specialist in Sweden and running extremely well, we gave it a "first" service when we first had it and the oil drained clean so no contamination from the restoration processes which is key on these). It runs faultlessly and the restoration work looks to be of a high standard. Swedish documents are in order on file and it's now registered in the UK on a correct age related number. One owner on the V5C; a gentleman known to us and he's only done a couple of hundred miles on the bike so it's still fresh from the rebuild and restoration. A truly lovely old boxer twin in traditional black with white pinstripes.
