1967 R60

1967 R60 US Model BMW motorcycle with Earls forks. This bike was purchased in 1982 in Wenatchee, WA and ended up being sold in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2008. The bike was originally set up for a sidecar for warfare hence the Earls forks. There is an actual factory ball on the frame to attach a sidecar. The 600 cc boxer engine would be a little under powered for a sidecar.
