This 1972 BMW R60/5 is a chrome paneled “toaster” tank version that is believed to have been stored as part of a private collection for several years. The seller acquired the bike in 2017 and has ridden it approximately 1,300 miles since. Power comes from a numbers-matching OHV 599cc opposed twin with a 4-speed transmission, and the engine, transmission, driveshaft, and final drive were reportedly serviced 200 miles ago. This R60/5 is now offered at no reserve with the factory tool kit and a clean Michigan title in the seller’s name.
