Today I made the first step toward the purchase of a 1961 BMW R69S, this is one of the coolest bikes ever built (again, in my opinion).  Over the next 60 days I will be selling off my Triumph drag bike and all my few remaining cool vintage bike parts, etc.  My bike does NOT look like the opening picture presently, it is a bit rough but that is the way I usually get them.  These bikes sell in the mid to low 20's when restored and no doubt I will have about $20K in it when done but spread out over a space of time. And I will know it is done right !

The bike I am buying is shown below, a little rough but not too bad.  It looks better in person I think ???
