    Information from a knowledgeable guy on another vintage forum says the bike is an R5SS built 1936-1937. He suspects that the bike is a replica because there is only one factory built R5SS still alive and a museum wouldn't risk the bike in a situation like this. Probably the bike belongs to Sebastian Gutsch:

    Still, awesome the way he maximized every part of the track...

    That's Troy Corser racing it, it very well may be authentic. After his SBK stint with BMW he became a brand ambassador and BMW's been really heavy at various concours shows in Europe.
