Desert Rat

A 1959 BMW R60 (/2) found me via email when a friend gave a lead. The bike was located out in the high desert, the owner was the second owner of the bike and had it since the early 1970's. Its very rare to get a good deal on a /2 BMW nowadays, but if and when the opportunity arises, find money and buy it. This 59 /2 has had a lot of history, its traveled across the country at least three times and up to Canada a few times too and the motors never been apart. My reason for the purchase is to get familiar with these twins, but I haven't decided what I was going to do with this bike yet. I was thinking along the lines of a brat and a cafe clone, maybe using a Honda CB tank with a GSXR front-end and I'm totally kidding.
