1974 r60/6 ?

Looking at a 74 R 60 that a rider wants to trade at the Triumph dealer. Looks in real good shape-can't ride it now due to snow-but I noticed a bit of fluid just rear of the left jug. Bike is parked on it's sidestand. Simple drip or is there more to it? Totally new to BMW.

I know it's not a lot of detail but it's all I have at the moment. Thanks in advance.

On the engine case itself or do you mean a drip on the floor?

I would guess push rod tube seal needs replaced,pretty common on older airheads or could be a valve cover gasket,either way not a big deal. Would you mind sharing the asking price?I'm just curious. I currently have two '78 airheads.

Also in that area I have had a oil pressure switch that leaked, easy fix $13 part and 2 minutes.

Leak is on floor. Asking $2500. Needs rubber.

Offer $1,500 ... I wouldn't pay more than $2,000. The 600 cc version of these airheads are fun bikes. It will last forever, but you aren't going to get any speeding tickets. The R75 and R90 for that year are much more tolerable ... IMO.
