This is a classic motorbike from BMW in very good condition, recently serviced and well taken care of. Its previous owner, a BMW motorcycle collector, kept her in a garage for many years, very well protected from rain, sun and dust. The bike is now stored indoors and awaits for a new careful owner to keep her alive for the next 65 years! The reconditioned engine runs smoothly with the characteristic one-cylinder roar, the brakes safely stop the R26 at all times and the surefooted ride creates a unique experience. A new battery was fitted together with a set of new Dunlop tires. For safety reasons, I decided to fit a pair of bullseye indicators, a horn and a mirror -all of them in accordance to the original specification. In addition, new handlebar grips were fitted and paired with a matching set of rubber foot pegs. The Bing carburetor was meticulously cleaned, serviced and adjusted for an easy engine start and smooth operation. Under my ownership the bike has successfully passed the local MOT (TUV) technical inspection twice. The passage of time is mildly evident on the bike’s surfaces, adding to the vintage look and creating an individual flair. Of course, if the new owner wants a complete respray for a mint condition appearance, this can be arranged at an additional cost. The motorcycle can be exported anywhere in the world at the new buyer’s expense. I can take care of all the transportation procedures and assist with the vehicle’s exportation. This is a rare opportunity to acquire an historic BMW moto in very good running order, with clear documents and a valid Greek registration plate.
