Vehicle Description

By 1960, new investment and management had revitalized BMW and the company introduced four new motorcycles including the R50/2. Inside the air-cooled, overhead-valve, horizontally opposed 494cc twin, key components such as the crankshaft and camshaft were strengthened, hardened chrome piston rings were added, and ventilation of the crankcase and transmission was improved.

This 1966 BMW R50/2 was fully restored by well-known BMW motorcycle restorer Tim Stafford.

This BMW motorcycle is refinished in its rare original color of Bristol Gray with all matching identification numbers. With only 955 miles since restoration the 494cc fully rebuilt engine starts easily and comes to a smooth idle. The 4-speed transmission shifts well with help from the cable operated clutch. Using the revolutionary front dual cartridge shocks and rear swing arm suspension this motorcycle cruises comfortably coming to a quick stop using the drum brakes. This 1966 BMW R50/2 is in excellent condition and will go well with any classic motorcycle owner's collection.
