Found on eBay: 1976 BMW R90/6

This week's cruise through eBay resulted in a few finds that got us a little hot under the collar. First there was a little 250cc MV Agusta we could see ourselves riding in the next Giro. Then there was 1964 Honda CB77 Superhawk bobber that caught our eye as something delightfully different. But in the end, we settled on a bike that's not flashy, not particulary fast and one that appears to be very near stock. Yes, it's a 1976 BMW R90/6.

Here at MC we're big fans of the airhead BMW's. Editor Backus rode a bitsa R75/5 for years, ad guy Rod Peterson rides his R60/6 almost every day, and editor Hall just picked up a R75/5 that's slowly getting freshened. Editor Backus also spent a couple of weeks riding a nicely-kept R90/6 a couple years back, and lucky for you, he even wrote about it.

The eBay R90/6 doesn't appear to need any freshening. In fact, all it really seems to need is a new owner. All original with the addition of side cases and a backrest, the /6 was just serviced, and can be seen at Max BMW in North Hampton, N.H.To see the auction for this slick BMW R90/6, go here.
