Interesting R 68 Bike on EBAY. Listed under 1952 BMW R Series
Should be fun to watch today.

Now we know!

Where does this fall compared to other R68 prices?

Now there is 52 guys

Now there is 52 guys (gals)that have way to much money (had) & no where else to spend it. I could have taken a second mortgage out on my house and bid I guess. Good on.

From what I saw it looks like

From what I saw it looks like the vintage BMW market is still really good. Since the R 68 was the first BMW
to do the ton combined with the limited # of them that were made, they still have it! And on EBAY no less!
My guess is that this buyer will have to rebuild the engine, replace the washers , hoses etc.
and probably spend a fair amount to get it road worthy. Hopefully they will ride it and not
put it in a garage. It is a nice bike, with a heck of a lot of style.
What is it that they say? " You can't take it with you "
