1968 BMW R60/2

Congratulations to Ken Morris of Upland for winning Bike of the Month with his 1968 BMW R60/2. Ken won a plaque provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys.

Ken has owned this BMW for 5 years and completed a nine month restoration in April just in time to take it to the Quail Motorcycle Gathering in Monteray and taking Second place in the European class. It's no wonder he took nearly every vote today.

Ken didn't ride it down from Upland today, but he rides it regularly.

Rare Accessories
This bike has several unique and rare accessories, including an auxiliary headlight with a rear mounted mirror, a tachometer, an eight day clock and rear luggage rack.

This was Ken's third Bike of the Month win. He won back in September 2016 with his 1969 BMW R60/2 and in July 2014 with his 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R.

Thank you Ken for bringing your BMW out for all of us to see. See all the photos in our August Gallery.
