Hello all,

I am looking for my next vintage BMW and I saw on eBay what looks to be a nice vintage R52. I did some research on it and found that the pictures used are the same ones when it was sold from Italy in 2015 on eBay which I found a bit unusual so it made me question it. Does anyone know of this particular motorcycle and have any comments?

Thanks!!

James

The listing has been pulled,

The listing has been pulled, but I think it was offered in the USA a year or so ago, as the Italian origin rings a bell. A friend was looking into it. IF it is the same one, it is a nice looking bike, but the crankcase halves didn't match, it was unlikely that the engine and frame numbers were of the same series, it had an OZ74 R12 head(s) and the head badge was a repop. It was represented to my friend as a "triple match" with a big price, which it definitely was not.

As always, caveat emptor.

Bruce
