Restored - SOLD

This 1960 R69 BMW motorcycle has been completely restored, from the ground up. The frame and swing arms were stripped, zinc primed and powder coated. The fenders and remaining sheet metal were media blasted, repaired, welded where needed, and BSAF painted by David Sterns of Autopia, Buffalo, New York. David has been restoring antique and classic automobiles for 30 years and his work is always stunning. Hand pinstriping was done by Mark Weld; chroming and cad plating completed by Niagara Plating; and the aluminum was professionally polished by Barnes Polishing and Plating.
