This beautiful R69S has covered about 4,000 miles since her single UK owner rebuilt and restored her to show-winning level using all the new parts he could find and without regard to cost. The result is very rare indeed; a concours restoration that starts easily, runs and rides perfectly and still looks better than new with some real miles on the clock. The bike comes with a BMW Mobile Tradition Zertifikat dated 18/03/2002 confirming matching numbers 662142 was manufactured on 17th September 1966 and delivered to Autohaus W. Glockler in Frankfurt on 5th June 1967. First registered in the UK in 2009 with a full documented history file since then. The meticulous restoration is detailed in the file with copies of invoices for NOS parts and there is a record of mileage with every MOT certificate. Points to mention include work on the crankshaft by Ainsley Barnes using new FAG con-rod sets, "slingers" (sludge traps) all done and the engine is fitted with brand new barrels and pistons, new carburettors and many other new BMW parts. The gearbox was rebuilt in Germany by specialists Ulis, who provide many of the parts. The suspension has been rebuilt with Koni internals (unavailable now). Dream Machine did the paintwork and it's beautiful. Stainless spokes and silencers fitted to chrome downpipes. The really beautiful thing is the Schorsch Meier large sports fuel tank (again unobtainable now) with the toolbox in the top rather than under the kneepad of the standard tank. Period leather panniers and rear luggage rack complete the package and there is a new "breadloaf" pillion seat with the bike if you prefer. Stunning.
