I have some old BMW parts manuals and would like to know if they are worth anything. They are in German and all but one is in good shape. The R11/R16 owners manual is taped up from long ago. I got them from an old family friend back when I road BMW's. I have an R32, R37, R57/R63, R11/R16, R52/R62 and Zundapp K800 parts books. I also have the R11/R16 owners manual. I worked in a BMW dealership for around 10 years and road them for about 25. I now ride a Harley, sorry, the new generation lost me.

Wow, an R32 manual. Peter

Wow, an R32 manual. Peter Nettesheim would probably have a good idea of the value of these...maybe he's interested in something for his collection.

I've a hunch...

...that the R37 book alone, sold at fair market after proper research, will get you most of a brand new Harley Davidsom motorcycle!

Just so I'm clear. They are parts books not manuals. Only the taped up one is an owners manual.

Hello,I've got a R32 manual

Hello,
I've got a R32 manual and parts list as well in superb conditions (plus R42 and R57/63 parts list). It would be interesting to know the value of those books just in case to swap it for something else nice.
Cheers Johnny
