BMW 1952 R25/2

Richard from Sweden’s Richard Garage is an amazing BMW motorcycle restorer. We all love before and after shots, and this is one of the best I’ve seen. The 1952 BMW R25/2 motorcycle, was found in a garden where it had stood for 42 years, only covered with a oil cloth. That’s Richard standing with the bike when he found it. The stunning white BMW motorcycle is what he turned it into after lots of hard work. Respect.

    wery amaising restauration!!!

    I have the same model my self, but unfortunately I live in Bosnia, and new parts are hardly available, i am hoping, with your help, to get it running again.
    the last recorded time this BMW run on the street was in 1999. all the mechanic parts are running separately, with the exception of the motor piston.

    thanks in advance

    Very nice, but the original color shouldn´t have been changed IMHO.
