This week's eBay highlight is a neat one. We're big fans of old airhead BMW's around here, and though we see a lot of them online, it's pretty unusual to see one with this many cool period accessories on it. This 1960 BMW R60/2 looks to be in great running shape and has a sweet Avon fairing, Buco bags and more.

Back in March we featured 1975 Moto Guzzi 850T in this same blog, and now the same seller has listed the gorgeous Beemer you see here. According to the listing, this R60 has just 420 miles on it since a complete engine and transmission rebuild by Benchmark Works. The final drive has been rebuilt, and the clutch assembly is new. The Avon fairing has a new Gustafsson windsheild and the bike includes a BMW tool kit and tire pump. And, frankly, we just like the looks of it.
