Lot 381: BMW R69S

Motorcycle and Motorcars, Bonhams & Butterfields (14 November 2009)

June 1962, Cycle World magazine's review of the R69S read: "Ask any motorcyclist what he considers to be the two-wheeled equivalent of the Rolls-Royce and you will almost certainly be told "BMW". Actually, the BMW motorcycle is more like the Mercedes: conservative in many respects, but quite advanced nonetheless. In any case, the BMW has acquired a reputation that makes it a "prestige" motorcycle  even among people who ordinarily don't give two wheelers a second glance." Offered on a Certificate of Title.
