This 1967 BMW R69S is finished in white with black pinstripes and powered by a numbers-matching 594cc opposed twin paired with a four-speed transmission. Features include shaft drive, an Earles fork, Denfeld solo seat, a fuel tank storage compartment, two luggage racks, Hella bar end signals, and chrome mirrors. The seller acquired the bike in 2017, and work in 2018 included refreshing the carburetors and replacing the turn signal switch, throttle housing, key switch, and terminal plate. It was recently serviced and fitted with a new battery following approximately two years in storage. This R69S is now offered with recent service records, literature, and a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.
The bodywork is finished in Feather White with black pinstipes and was reportedly refurbished around 2005. Equipment includes a Schorsch Meier sport fuel tank with rubber knee grips, Denfeld solo seat, luggage rack, folding chrome rear rack, a locking fuel tank storage compartment, a hinged rear fender, center and side stands, and chrome side mirrors mounted on the headlight ears. Hella bar-end signals and a related turn signal switch and wiring was installed in 2018 by VR Garage of Bend, Oregon.
Wire-spoke 18″ wheels wear older Metzeler tires. Suspension consists of an Earles leading-link front fork and a rear swingarm that incorporates the driveshaft enclosure with twin shocks. The drum brakes were adjusted in August 2021.
The 120-mph speedometer is housed in the headlight bucket and contains a five-digit odometer that shows 12k miles, a handful of which were added by the seller. Total mileage is unknown. The ignition lock and terminal plate along with the right hand throttle control were replaced in 2018.
The air-cooled 594cc opposed twin features twin Bing carburetors and a polished dual exhaust. Service in August 2021 following approximately two years in storage included checking the fluids, inspecting the fuel and electrical systems, and installing a replacement six-volt battery.
Engine stamping number 663858 matches the headstock plate and frame stamping which can be viewed in the gallery.
Power is sent to the rear wheel through a four-speed transmission and a driveshaft enclosed in the right leg of the swingarm.
