1960 BMW R69 S with sidecar                  


A development of BMW’s R69, the more powerful R69 S arrived in September 1960 to stake a claim as the world’s finest sports tourer. The R69 S’ 42bhp made for a top speed of 110mph, and Motor Cycle hailed the newcomer as a “luxury roadster with superb high-speed performance yet docile traffic manners; magnificent steering, roadholding and brakes.” A hydraulic steering damper and bar-end indicators were the most obvious differences between the ‘S’ models and their predecessors. All this came at the price of a new budget family car.

This matching numbers BMW combination benefits from being offered in first class condition with a low mileage of believed ca. 34,000 miles. Furthermore it sports the slightly larger Schorsch Meier touring fuel tank, electronic ignition system and twin seat. The Steib sidecar was found later and built to fit the R69 S. Beautifully finished in gleaming black with correct re-striping, re-ground piston ring valves, stainless steel exhaust system, chromed steel wheel rims, stainless steel spokes; this immaculate combination comes with English V5C registration documents. Simply superb and not to be missed by serious BMW collectors or enthusiasts alike.
