For Sale: 1953 BMW R Series in Saint Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

The R51/3 was BMW's first true post-war motorcycle design, following the prewar-derived R51/2. The R51/3 is an iconic motorbike, elegantly styled and featuring a powerful 500-cc "boxer" twin set low in the frame. Renowned then as now for its exceptional refinement and comfort, the R51/3 features twin plunger rear suspension, shaft drive, and a four-speed gearbox for outstanding long-distance ability. This lovely example features matching engine and frame numbers, and is presented in largely original and unrestored condition having spent many years in a private collection. It is beautifully finished in its original livery of black with cream pinstripes, and displays a warm and pleasing patina. Found to run and ride well, though some additional sorting may be needed before embarking on longer rides. A must-have for any collection of significant motorcycles, rarely seen in such well-preserved condition. This vehicle just arrived, and a full description is coming soon. Please contact Hyman Ltd for more details. Offers welcome and trades considered For additional details please view this listing directly on our website
