Description: This beautifully restored 1955 BMW motorcycle was restored and owned by a local Southern California Fire Department and has come up for sale. This motorcycle is a R25 model with a rare single cylinder engine (more rare than the heavier 3 cylinder). The engine produces 13HP by means of 7:1 compression. The transmission is a 4 speed manual box that operates correctly while utilizing a shaft drive to power the rear wheels. This R25 weighs in at a paltry 330lbs making it easy to manuver and sporty to ride. In stock form this bike has a top speed of 75mph.
