An original and genuine barn find

Sorry to labour this point – but want to be clear and up front before I start with advert.

Time is very precious so i kindly ask not to be messed about, please only bid with intention to buy as highest bidder will win and purchase not to bid and turn up to haggle or be surprised you cant ride it home (apologies to all the serious eBay users looking for that certain something)

This is a 99P start 7 day Auction with no reserve so highest bidder will win and purchase.


BMW 50/5 – 600cc original colour as Black (with Black Rickman head fairing) age related style with age of bike – also has two plastic luggage pannier boxes (not in great condition but again related to age – I have not tried to fit them on to the bike.

with Log book

1st Registered – 1st August 1973


An original genuine barn find – Last taxed 31:01:1984 for the grand sum of £32 for the year.

Typical German engineering, of 8 bikes that I pulled out of this storage facility, this BMW has stood the test of time the best given its German engineering and build quality.

Free wheel beside flat tyres

Turns over on the kick start so not seized.

Its of choice if you think the BMW looks better with or without Rickman fairing.

Exhausts are extremely great condition – with great chrome.

Seat in very good condition

Photos showing barn find covered in dust and others show with just a quick rinse off of the paint is also not to bad of condition.

Bike looks to be in generally fair condition with most parts present, nothing stand out (beside Battery) to be missing However please study photos for condition and more than welcome to view.

Not tried starting as would need cleaning of carbs and total re-commissioning.

This Model – There are not too many of these around anymore and only seen one other on eBay so could be a bit of an unusual collector’s piece given time.

Please refer to photos and study – what you see in the photos is what is up for Grabs and explains the condition.

Would be nice if someone could bring it back to its former glory, (beyond my abilities) or could be made into a café racer which seems to be the in thing with these older retro beamers albeit it I think it would be a shame to cut and carve this one.

Obviously need to van or trailered away as none runner and how it came out of the garage where its been for we think about 30 ish years ?

Any questions I will do my best to answer – viewing more than welcome before end of auction (BS13 area of Bristol)

Cash On collection

Thanks for looking and have a look at my other items for other Barn finds (motorbikes) going up on the same basis as this action – Highest bidder wins

Cheers Paul
