Five years into making motorcycles, BMW introduced the 750cc-engined R62 in 1928. Unusual at the time, the R62 has a horizontal twin engine, shaft drive and a cantilever front suspension. Not even BMW‘s engineers could have imagined that over 88 years later, their bikes would not only be running but able to keep up with vehicles on the road today. This rare 1929 BMW R62 is set to be auctioned off in the coming weeks, and is restored using only the finest factory parts including a new speedometer, Bosch horn and steering damper. With only 4,355 machines built within the two years of production of the bike, the R62 is among the rarest of all BMWs. Take a closer look below: For more information click here.
