Seller description

1956 BMW Motorcycle – R69 converted to a café style with
leading link Earles Fork after an earlier episode as an amateur racer.
I am the power of attorney for the sale of this BMW
motorbike. This R69 has been owned for 13 years, having been purchased in New York State.
For my part, I do not claim to be an expert in these things.
I have cleaned out the fuel system and carburetors (AMALS) and I have ridden it
several kilometers around my suburban block, but I have not ridden it at speed.
With the passage of time and the related age of the owner
and the mechanic, most technical details and the extent of modifications if not
readily apparent, are lost to the winds of time. There are no log books or
builders notes but there are some receipts for goods and services.
This motorcycle was listed last week prior to discovering some records and photos of an earlier history as an amateur race bike. So I have relisted it with that added information. The current owner used the bike on the street and several track days and also used it to participate in race training leading to his competition license. I believe the changes including the removal of the air filter
and the installation of the AMAL carbs were done under present ownership.  The MORAD Espana shouldered rims and the Hoske style exhaust
pipes were also added to the bike by this owner more than a decade or so ago.
Dunlop tires with date codes in 2003 are 90/90 front and 110/80 rear, so they
obviously should be replaced before serious use. You will see a sensor and
pick-up in one of the photos to feed the data for speed readout to the Panorama
digital display which occasionally works.
This bike runs by magneto and the 6 volt battery, useful to
keep the lights on during low revs is currently dead. This bike has a kill
switch as well as a lanyard kill switch as required for racing. Also included in an aluminum catch pan to be installed under the motor per AHRMA regulations.
Fully adjustable Magura Clubman bars are featured. The very rear set controls
and the straight line inlet tract for the AMALs can
bring shins into contact when air filters are installed.
The left rear set foot peg has to fold out of the
way of the kicker’s travels. Normally for the track, the kick starter would be removed by rule. Partially because of assumed higher compression in
the engine and the long and straight inlet path it takes several and
difficult kicks to achieve regular combustion cycles. Last photo in the series shows polished valve rockers evidence of possibly other head work. The engine feels very
seat-of-the-pants strong and it can accelerate briskly.
Importantly, the frame on this R69 has not been altered.
This motorcycle was acquired from New York State in August
of 2003. It now has a valid and clean PA Antique Motorcycle title. The frame and
the engine carry the same serial numbers.
The bike runs, shifts, steers and stops. The lights work or
can be made to work. The exhausts are loud, the riding position is aggressive in present configuration. The tires must all be replaced for safe use. The true mileage is unknown, as there is not speedometer / odometer.I will help to the extent possible with shipping of this bike, but all costs are for the buyer's account.
