Old bike in the garage

I was working on a house and went into the garage to look for a scrub brush.The first thing I noticed was it smelled like cats.The next thing was a old scooter with a side car.Then some mid 60's convertible mustang with a cat staring me down.I took some pictures of the bike and I am looking for help in what year it is and what it might be worth.Thx John. http://www.i-bmw.com/gallery/showpho...40898/cat/1744

Re: Old bike in the garage

Late 60's, value at least 7500/9000$ as it sits, maybe more. Requires many thousands to make it road worthy and safe but well worth whatever it takes.

Re: Old bike in the garage

That bike is a BMW R60. They were built between 1956 and 1960. The frame and engine numbers confirm it:
