This looks cool as dude. It does not look comfortable at all.. and the back suspension looks like it is held together with tape haha.

Is it yours?

I like the roughness of the old bike mixed with the tough looking background...nicely done.

These are great old machines. I had the opportunity to work on one of these older BMWs, bringing it back to life after a decade or two in a dusty garage. It was evident that the original machine was engineered well and built with care!

Great pic!!

Thanks for the comments. Not my bike, but I'd take it as a rider/fix-r-upper. I used to buy old bikes, rehab them and re-sell them...kept me in a bike and always made a little dough for my hobby. Maybe one day I can get back into that again when I have a garage.

I put 400 miles on a borrowed 1965 BMW 600, about 45 years ago. What a dreamy bike to ride.
A fine piece of machinery. At 71 years of age I would still love to have
a bike, but I can't afford one and my wife would go nuts. I once rode a 1948 Harley. It was an ungainly monster that had wheels that were wide apart so making turns was kind of awkward. A few days after I rode it the wiring went up in smoke and I think the guy who owned it junked it soon after that. Also,
about 45 years ago. Freddy

Lovely old BMW...boxer twin. Looks like it's doing 100 mph standing still.

I have a '67 Matchless Scrambler...factory hybrid with Norton 750cc twin...twin carbs, sports cam, low gearing, skid plate....shoehorned into a lighter Matchless frame.

Also a 78 Yamaha SR 500 single cylinder...copy of old Britsh sport's singles.
