Congratulations to Eugene & Mary Garcin of Hollywood for winning Bike of the Month with their 1952 BMW R67/2. Gerald won a $20.00 Beach Burgers gift certificate provided by Beach Burgers and The Scooter Solution.
Eugene has owned the bike since 2005. Originally a sidecar bike it took two years and 400 hours to convert it to a single bike. The conversion required changing of all the gearing in the transmission and rear end.
1952 was a transitional year between the pre-war BMW's. It has a plunger frame and a telescoping fork with steel gators pre dating the Earl forks used in the later years.
This model also includes half hub brakes carried over from the pre-war design, and has a neutral finder lever unique to sidecar motorcycles.
Eugene credits his wife Mary for urging him into motorcycles and restoration. He has had a lot of success with our group winning with every motorcycle he brings.
Thanks Eugene for bringing this cool two seater to our meet. View all the photos in our March Gallery.
