1937 BMW R-12

Congratulations to Shawn Boeker of Garden Grove for winning Bike of the Month with his 1937 BMW R-12. Shawn won a plaque provided by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys.

Shawn has owned the bike for 5 years and finished the restoration on it about three months ago. Shawn restored all the mechanical bits and the paint was done by John's Body Shop in Long Beach.

Shawn has placed in the Bike of the Month contest several times in the past, but only once has one of his bikes won.

Bike of the Month - February 2018
Back in February 2018, Joshua Sult won with his 1966 BMW R60/2, a Shawn Boeker build.

The BMW R-12 was the first BMW to have an 4 speed transmission and the telescopic front fork. It also sported an 18hp motor.

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