Help me to choose! BMW R 600 1967 white?

Should i buy?
This guy sells Bmw r 600 year 1967 colour White. with the long seat. He asks 4400 but is willing to go lower a little?

Should i buy it. I bought R-80Rt 1986 model last autumn. I dont have 4000 on me, but i could borrow half of it from a friend. Is the price a bargain? It is in good condition. He allso sells Black one 1962 and he sais that its a model that is rare and only made a few. So what sould i do ?

The formula used to determine if you have enough motorcycles is expressed as:

E = N + 1

E = the number of motorcycles you need.

N = the number of motorcycles you currently have.

Glad to help!

If you want value opinions, pictures and a reasonable assessment of the condition will be needed. Presumably this transaction is in the EU?

A white R60/2, either Earles forks or US forks at 4k Euros sounds like a bit of a bargain for the US market... where is the bike and where are you?



For sure the Slash 2 series is VERY different from the R80RT, and you should have a real love for Classic bikes, with their kick-start-only. If you like them, you love them!

I just love the looks so much! In finland its allso cheap to keep these museum registered bikes. normal ensurance for example my airhead is 200 per year, but museum vehicle is 50 a year. The museum agency says that they should be ridden only 30 times per year, but its impossible for them to surveilense that.

From my experience it only makes sense to buy more bikes (and any other materialistic stuff) if you truly have the time to enjoy and maintain the things you get. Otherwise you won't really be any happier.

The black bike is an R69S. The white bike is an R60/2. The cylinder heads are different. Actually I should say the engines are different. The R69S is a more powerful and faster bike. The R69S is more desirable, thus the higher price.

Thats true! Its typical that when you have the money in your hands and no bike at the moment, Then after you buy that "hey this one is pritty cool" Then there comes the real Diamond and No money left or if there is money it should go some where else than motorcycles.

OK.... The prize you see there is for Those 2 bikes and he said 4400 on the white one, so could i try 3500 on the white since the " s " model is rare?? Or 4400 on the black one?

Somebody tell us, what is 3,500 Euros in US Dollars, please? These prices sound awfully cheap but it's in Finland and it's a different economy. If I could but R69S bikes in Europe for about 5 or 6 K in US dollars I could make money.
