Herbert told us that this 1969 BMW R60US motorcycle was originally his father’s. His dad was the one who got him into motorcycles, and he had his first one when he was 16. Over the years he’s had about 25 different bikes, but this one is special to him.
After his dad passed away it was sold to a family member. Eventually it was sold again and they lost track of it. Herbert’s wife was able to find it and bought it for his birthday, and it’s been under restoration for 4 ½ years. He was even able to find a license plate from 1969, which also has dad's birth year and the initials MC. As soon as they have it back from the restoration place they will be having an unveiling party at his house.
