The time has come…

After almost 17 years of ownership, restoration, and several repairs I’ve decided to sell my R69S. It’s been fun, but it is time to make room in the garage for different toys. Someone else can play with this one.

Pictures taken this afternoon are below. My history with this bike is well documented on these web pages. Here are some links to get you started.

There are over 5000 pictures of the bike in those pages. The early pictures aren’t very good. The later pictures are better. The answer to any question you could ask about the bike is probable in those pages. But feel free to ask me if you like. Please use the email address marc@snafu.org. Mail to my other addresses often wind up in my junk mail folder.

The most recent work on the bike occured earlier this year. The cam was re-ground, tappets replace, cylinders rebored to third over size, new pistons, new valves, etc. Full details start at this page.

Here are the pictures I took today.

Package Deal

I’m selling the bike as a package with LOTS of extras. The details:

So how much? $15,000 gets you the entire package. Shipping is the buyers responsibility. I’ll work with your shipper to get the bike transferred into your hands once payment clears.

Twenty questions (more or less)
