BMW or Chinese Knockoff

Post by CPADGETT »

Let's get this out in the open, I'm a Harley guy. Ok now that everyone knows heres my dilemma, I have a 80-90some customer who asked me to get his 1941 R12 running so he could sell it. The story he told me about the Russian invasion into East Berlin made sense from my little knowledge of history of the BMW's. He stated that he had always wanted one of these and in 1993 there was an add in a magazine advertising that some had been found and they were for sale in Detroit MI so he made the trip and bought one. I ran the numbers on this website and came up with nothing so I'm thinking that he got took by some scammer. When he got the title in Kansas it says it's a 1941 BMW but that doesn't mean a thing if it's a copy. I tried to add a couple of pictures to see if you guys can help us identify this but says file to large. I can email direct if needed.
Thanks for your help

Welcome to the forum! If you can reduce the size of the images, then they could be uploaded. Windows operating system has a Paint app that can do that for you.

Can you email them to yourself, choosing an option to reduce the quality of the images? Then download the images from your email message to your computer and upload them.
