In 1948, BMW's postwar motorcycle production recommenced with the R24 single but it would be another 12 months before a twin-cylinder model became available again. This was the R51/2 based, as its designation suggests, on the pre-war R51. Improvements incorporated into the R51/2 included a two-way damped front fork, gearbox mainshaft damper and strengthened frame. In truth, the R51/2 was only a stopgap model to get production under way while BMW worked on something more modern. Its replacement, the R51/3, arrived in February 1951 and despite the similarity in designation had an entirely new and much neater looking engine incorporating a single, gear-driven camshaft and crankshaft-mounted generator among a host of other advances.

This 1953 BMW R 51/3 was discovered in the late 90's tucked away for many years by its 1st owner and was last used in 1963 with most of its original parts, the motorcycle has matching engine case and frame numbers ( Both 523944 ) then in 2003 with the 2nd owner the bike was then once again put back on the road for a brief period of time, In 2009 when the bike met its 3rd owner it underwent a complete restoration that included a full engine & gearbox refurbishment , New NOS Carbs fitted from Germany ( Rare ), new fuel taps, Genuine new wheel rims / re-spoked with stainless steel and have been correctly painted. The paint was meticulously redone with hand painted pinstripes, also fitted is a genuine Hoske long range fuel tank. the bike is now ready to ride or show.

Supplied new by BMW Chiswick UK in 1953 ( The first BMW Dealer in the UK after the War : ) This BMW has covered less than 250 miles since restoration.
