Beautifully restored by BMW Guru David Barnsley at Barnsley Motor Works. No expense spared. Completely torn down, all parts powder coated, all parts replace with New Old Stock parts. Over $18,000.00 invested. You will not find another example of an R60/2 this great. Ready to ride. Title in hand. I will help with shipping, but you are responsible for setting it up, and full payment. The lucky winner will soon find out whenever you take this bike around other people, you'll see heads turning, and many conversations when you park. This bike is such a joy to ride. Please contact me with any questions, or specific pictures. A bike, not as nice as this one sold on Bring A Trailer for over $50,000.00 If its not sold here, I'll be posting it on B.A.T. Good luck in your bidding!!
