" Such a Shame "

By badgerwil70
As a motorcycle lover and in particular anything remotely classic to find this lovely old BMW 500cc single, just right for restoration, being used to display clothes, in a shop in Corfu Greece as abhorrent.
I believe it to be an R27 circa late 5o's early 60's but perhaps someone with more knowledge can put me right.

Will.

Looks like a R27 to me Bill, but not 100% sure on that one. Well captured image mate, sad end to an old machine!

It is a shame should be out there on the open road. Great find. Debs

There is some movement these days to not restore older machines, if they are still running, something to do with patina collected over the life of vehicle, displaying a history of life as an item of everyday usage, this one looks a fair candidate for that category. An interesting image and a shame it is used as clothes horse.
Cheers.
Nigel,
