Busted Knuckles Auctions presents this Ultra Rare BMW R50S Motorcycle with 330 miles on the odometer. This bike is one of the rarest bikes BMW made post war era. This Bike was restored by world renowned Stafford Restorations out of California. It is absolutely beautiful and is kept in a climate controlled setting.
Luxury tourers that cost as much as a small family car, the R50 sold to discerning enthusiasts to whom expense mattered little when set against the excellence of BMW engineering. In 1960 the flat-twins range was revised as the ‘/2’, most of the changes being inside the engine, which received a strengthened crankcase and crankshaft, hard-chromed piston rings, improved internal ventilation, new cam followers and a stronger clutch assembly. The new ‘/2’ models were shown for the first time at the Nurburgring circuit in August 1960.
The 35bhp R50S had a maximum of around 100mph. Produced between 1960 and 1962 only, during which time 1,634 examples were completed, the R50S is one of the rarer post-war BMW twins and highly sought after by BMW collectors. This example is probably the nicest one you will find out there.
