Found on eBay: 1974 BMW R90S 

As much as we admire people who spend the time and the money to fully restore an old motorcycle, bikes like this 1974 BMW R90S remind us that they're only original once.

BMW's line of air-cooled bikes are known for their longevity and simplicity, especially the early Seventies models. This R90S shows just more than 62,000 miles on the odometer, and appears to be in very nice shape for its age. It still wears its original Black/Smoke paint, a highlight of the R90S models, along with the original seat cover.

The bike had new tires just 300 miles ago and saw recent serverice at a BMW dealer. Though the seller mentions the paint is somewhat faded on teh fairing, tank and tail, we like the fact that this is a bike that could be bought, ridden and maintained without the worries of a new nick here or a scratch there. Someone should buy this and continue to rack up the miles on it.
