This 1969 BMW R69US is equipped with a Heinrich touring tank and a set of Akront aluminum rims. It was reportedly restored in Europe and was acquired by the seller out the previous owner’s estate in 2018. Power is from the numbers-matching 594cc opposed-twin, which is paired with a 4-speed gearbox. Service in late 2018 included an oil change and replacement ignition condenser. This R69US is now offered with a partial tool kit, reproduction service manual, factory owner’s manual, and a clear Tennessee title in the seller’s name.
