vintagemunro Store I'm listing this machine for a long-time customer and good friend... From a 1951 sales brochure: “Among experts, this two cylinder motorcycle is called ‘A work of art in metal.’ ” The R51/3 is the second large displacement post war motorcycle that BMW was allowed to produce after the war. Produced for four years, the model was targeted at the sport solo market and was well-review by the press back in the day. This matching number example has been meticulously and accurately restored – and has had very little running time since the restoration. Rare and beautiful, it has the one-year-only front brake hub (full width brakes 7.9”), aluminum rims and correct saddle. As was the case with later ‘54s, this one has the brake light switch assembly. It’s a fine running machine that has been carefully prep’d for storage and display in the current owner’s collection. The high standard to which this machine has been restored and preserved is clearly evident in the hi-resolution images on my Flickr Album. To view the full-sized images on Flickr, click on the icon on the lower right of any image page and you'll be able to download or view all sizes. The machine is located in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada (a suburb of Vancouver).
