BMW R-51 1939 "replica" for sale

Impossible to know from the pictures. At least the seller is being upfront about the frame, which is a good sign. I do not know if it is a postwar frame or a repop. I did see a batch of plunger frame repops at Veterama a few years ago. If it is postwar, it should have a BMW frame number.

No one that I know of is making repops of the twin cam engines, but since the Russsians and Chinese have both made R71 clones, other parts could be taken from them. From a distance, the transmission does not look Russian or Chinese but more detailed pix are needed.

Does the seller give the any engine and frame number information?

Ciao,

Bruce

Does anybody need a translation?
