1968 BMW R69S with only 18,732 miles, elderly physician owned (me), never down, never damaged, all original paint, with a full Avon Avonaire fairing, Denfeld spring saddle w/buddy seat, bar end turn signals, factory air pump, factory tool kit w/BMW shop rag. The original paint shines like new & with perfect factory-original white pinstriping. Original Avonaire fairing with dual mirrors in perfect condition also w/super glossy original paint. Stunningly beautiful bike.
Just completely checked over by Bob Bancroft at Bancroft Motorwerks, fresh tune-up w/ignition timing & valve lash set, carbs adjusted & synchronized, fresh oil change, fresh fork oil flush, new clutch, new Emerald Isle high-output coil (for easy starting). Starts right up and runs perfectly; needs nothing. No surprises, no disappointments. All original true survivor. Fly in, ride home or we can help arrange trucking. This bike gets more compliments than anything we've ever owned. Absolutely gorgeous. Selling only due to our age.

Note: The Avonaire fairing was installed on this bike when it was new, 52 years ago. Despite several generous offers, I will not remove & sell it separately.

Note: All paint on the bike and fairing is original, the engine & drivetrain are also original. The bike & engine are matching numbers. The items that are not: I replaced the seat last year (the original is included) and the tires & battery are two years old. The original owner's manual is also included.

It's been brought to my attention questioning that this bike is an R69US (w/the telescopic forks) but has an R69S emblem on the rear fender. My R69S rear fender emblem is factory original and correct. BMW did not make a R69US emblem and attached the R69S emblem to both versions; with & without Earles forks. I have confirmed this with several experts including Bob Bancroft who was the BMW mechanic throughout the 1960s for Johnny Roman in Youngstown.

I've posted photos of the matching numbers engine, frame, and data tag. The data tag also clearly specifies that this is a R69US; but I am unable to change the listing's title. BTW, from what I understand, only the telescopic fork R69US is able to be fitted with the Avonaire.
