This listing just popped up on ebay. It is an interesting bike, to be sure, and adds some credence to the common thought that 1960 was the first year the Dover White color appeared. I think his decimal point is off by one, and then further divide by two:

Bwa ha ha! Wow, the muck got

Bwa ha ha! Wow, the muck got pretty deep by the end of the story. Maybe the big Shorsch Meier tank is filled with Nazi gold that was smuggled out of Germany by a fleeing SS officer and instead of being imported to Argentina it went to NY! Buy it now.

This guy must be snorting

This guy must be snorting something funny and white unless it comes with Paul Newman's Rolex Watch.

The bullshit narrative alone is worth half a million!

That guy is nuts!

He keeps changing the price and moving the bike around. I don't think he's a serious seller at all, but what's his point?

I have a BMW R26 manufactured

I have a BMW R26 manufactured in September 1959 that was originally "Elfenbein" (Ivory) according to the BMW group archives folks. I'm not sure if it would be considered a 1959 or 1960 production year bike, but it's another white data point.

The bike unfortunately received a low quality black paint job at some point, but I'll return it to the original color when I go through it.

That's Interesting

That's interesting. Hard to tell if BMW called your a '59 or '60, I'd say '59. Seems to confirm what others have said about factory white bikes. Thanks!
