1938 BMW R12

Congratulations to Marcus Davin of Newport Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1938 BMW R12. Marcus won a $20.00 Beach Burgers gift certificate provided by Beach Burgers and The Scooter Solution.

This was Marcus' second time winning Bike of the Month. He won back in September 2013 with his 1966 BMW R50/2.

Marcus has owned this bike for 2 years. It was restored in Germany. Last month's winner Mike Dunn of Vintage German Motorcycles in Riverside has worked on the bike getting into it's current condition.

According to Marcus, the R12 was one of the first motorcycles to have a telescoping front fork.

Thanks Marcus for bringing this rare bike to our meet. View all the photos in our December Gallery.
