Description

The R35 was developed for use by authorities, police and the military as was known for being very robust, tough and exceptionally reliable. These models, based on the BMW R are also widely regarded as some of the most beautiful motorbikes at the time, and were equipped with a four-stroke single cylinder vertical engine that produced 14 hp at 3,500 rpm. They had a forced feed engine lubrication system and geared oil pump, and were able to reach a surprising top speed of 62 mph, not bad for a small motorbike from the late 1930s! Sadly over 1000 examples were left unfinished and stored after the Eisenbach factory was damaged at the end of the war.

The example we have on offer today, has been well looked after and kept in appropriate dry storage for the most part of its life. The majority of its chrome, including the fuel cap and handlebars, is in good overall condition. While they are considered a great addition to motorbike collections worldwide due to their rarity, they are also a great every-day motorbike and spare parts are accessible.
