I noticed quite a few BMW's on the consignment list:

1938 BMW R51
1957 BMW R50
1960 BMW R50/2
1961 BMW
1964 BMW R60/2
1964 BMW R60/2 w/ Steib sidecar
1964 BMW R69 S
1965 BMW R69S
1968 BMW R50
1968 BMW R50/2
1968 BMW R50/2 Chopper
1969 BMW R69S
1974 BMW R90/6 with Sidecar
1990 BMW K1

I don't have any bikes in it, just thought I'd pass it on.

Cheers!

R37 at the MidAmerica Auction

This bike sold for $200,000.

The R37 is indeed a rarity, but when you see R32s, which are not sooo uncommon getting $125k and up, maybe this was a good deal...
