This 1961 BMW R60/2 is a matching numbers example that was purchased by the seller in November of 2018 from a long term owner. Power comes from a 594cc opposed twin with a 4-speed transmission and shaft drive. The seller recently replaced the fuel petcock, and work performed under previous ownership reportedly included new push-rod tubes with seals, a valve adjustment, and an oil change. 17k miles are shown, of which the seller has added approximately 300. This R60 is now offered with two service manuals, a tool kit, tire pump, various spare parts, and a clean Washington title in the seller’s name.

Features include a Denfeld solo seat, period Enduro side cases, a fender mounted parcel rack, and bar end mirrors.
