1952 BMW R25/2


With demand for cheap, reliable transport in post-war Europe on the increase, BMW’s single-cylinder range of motorcycles sold in unprecedented numbers, forging the Bavarian company’s reputation as a maker of high quality two-wheeled machines. With Allied restrictions preventing BMW from making anything of greater capacity than 250cc, the R24/25 series of the late 1940s and early 1950s was hugely popular in the local market. The single-cylinder R24 was essentially a pre-war design but when the R25 was released in 1950, it utilised a new welded tubular steel frame with sidecar mounts, along with plunger rear suspension and an improved engine. The R25/2 of 1951 was rated at 12 horsepower. With interest in classic bikes growing all the time, the early post-war BMWs are an ideal choice for someone looking to do club runs on weekends. 


This stunning R25/2 has enjoyed a nut and bolt restoration, with only 76 miles being covered since completion. The restoration was covered in Real Classic Magazine, and this bike can only be described as superb. A wonderful opportunity to own one of the nicest of this model available.
