Description: 1968 BMW R 60/2 SERIE 2 AVEC SIDE CAR STEIB LS 200 - no reserve Carte grise française Cadre n° 1812603 Moteur n° 1812603 - Grande classique de BMW - Sidecar Steib de grande qualité - Bon état d'origine - sans réserve Pour BMW, la "Série 2" est un peu ce que la Giulia est à Alfa Romeo ou la 250 GT à Ferrari. Née en 1955, elle va assurer le succès du constructeur jusqu'à la fin des années 1960. Ce sera la moto des "roule-toujours", de la police, des livreurs ou des motards de presse, ainsi que des amateurs heureux d'avoir une moto qu'ils peuvent sortir par tous les temps sans craindre la panne électrique qui guette souvent les utilisateurs de machines anglaises... Des R 50 et R 69 de 1955 jusqu'aux R 69 S arrêtées en 1969, toutes les motos de la série se caractérisent par une partie-cycle comportant une fourche Earles et une suspension arrière oscillante, et par un bicylindre à plat à soupapes en tête culbutées. Présentée en 1956, la R 60 est une 600 cm3 de tourisme qui, dans sa version R 60/2 apparue quatre ans plus tard, gagne 2 ch et quelques améliorations qui vont lui assurer une bonne diffusion: en huit ans, elle se vendra à plus de 17 000 exemplaires, un beau chiffre pour une moto alors considérée comme de "grosse" cylindrée. Restant sous la barre des 200 kg, les 30 ch de son moteur lui permettaient d'atteindre 150 km/h et de maintenir une vitesse de croisière de plus de 100 km/h. La R 60/2 de la vente a été achetée par son actuel propriétaire en 1992. Équipée de silencieux Vatier, elle est en état d'origine et a peu roulé. Elle est attelée à un side-car Steib LS 200, modèle ultraléger dont la forme classique et profilée donne à l'ensemble une allure inimitable. Il est conçu pour les motos de cylindrée modeste, si bien que la puissance de la R60 permet de le manœuvrer sans difficultés. Il est doté d'un pare-chocs et le panier a été restauré avec une belle sellerie noire et un saute-vent amovible. En plus d'avoir belle allure, cet attelage permet d'entreprendre balades ou voyages dans un certain confort et avec sérénité. French title Frame n° 1812603 Engine n° 1812603 - All-time classic BMW - High quality Steib side-car - Good original condition - no reserve To BMW, the " Series 2 " was rather like the Giulia was to Alfa Romeo or the 250 GT to Ferrari. Launched in 1955, it went on to guarantee the manufacturer's success until the end of the 1960s. It became the machine of choice for the police, couriers and the press, as well as enthusiasts who wanted to have a bike they could use all the time without fear of an electrical fault, which could be a weakness on English machines...From the R 50 and R 69 of 1955 through to the last R 69S in 1969, all the machines in the series featured a frame with Earles fork and swinging arm rear suspension, and a flat twin cylinder engine with overhead valves. First presented in 1956, the R 60 had a 600cc touring engine. When the R 60/2 appeared four years later it had gained 2 bhp and other improvements which ensured its popularity: in eight years it sold more than 17,000 examples - an impressive figure for what was considered to be a big, powerful bike. Weighing less than 200 kg, the engine's 30 bhp propelled the bike to 150 km/h and allowed a cruising speed of more than 100 km/h. The R 60/2 in the sale was bought by the current owner in 1992. Fitted with a Vatier silencer, it is in original condition and has been ridden very little. It has a Steib LS 200 sidecar attached, which is an ultralight model with a classic design that complements the appearance of the whole perfectly. It was designed for low-powered bikes, so is very easy to manœuvre with the power of the R60. It is equipped with bumpers and the side-car has been restored with superb black upholstery and a removable wind deflector. This machine doesn't just look good - it is capable of providing short trips or longer journeys in total comfort and tranquility.
