Found on eBay: 1960 BMW R60/2

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, ...
