For sale is a matching numbers BMW R50/2 in original paint. I believe the story is that the ladies that did the pin striping at the factory signed the tanks on completion, this tank has the signature UG on the bottom on the right side.
The bike has just undergone a complete engine re-build and upgrade to R 50/S engine specification at a cost of over $3,000.00
The crank was inspected and Magna-fluxed, the lightened flywheel was fitted to the crank and they were then balanced as a pair. Higher compression pistons were fitted to the re-bored barrels. The cylinder heads have new valve guides and un-leaded valve seats, also new valves, springs and Titanium valve caps. New bearings and seals used throughout.
The engine and frame numbers are both 644544.
Indicated mileage is 22,794.
The bike has a California registration.
This machine is a delight to ride, smooth, quiet and with the engine upgrades much more usable in today's conditions than a stock R50/2.
With the machine is a pair of period after-market hard cases.
Runs and rides excellent!
Thanks for looking and good luck in bidding.
