BMW R-Series description

Nice 1957 BMW R50 in good mechanical condition. Starts easily and runs well. Rear tire is close to new, and the front has plenty of tread, but should be replaced due to age. I bought it eleven years ago with the intention of restoring it but I decided that I like the patina and have not done anything but maintain it. It's time to thin the herd. I hate to see it go, but my piston count is ridiculously high. Looking for a good home.
