    /2 in a movie ca 1965

    Strange little clip from a 1965 movie "Spring Night Summer Night". It's an R50 or R60...don't think it's an R69S. The bike seems to have some get up and go...the driver is really carving up this dirt road, too. From the discussion I was reading about this, it seems clear that the sound heard from the mufflers is likely dubbed in during post production.

    Based upon what Duane shows on his website, I would think they're Buco bags.

    - Bates -- https://w6rec.com/duane/bmw/bags/bates/bates1.JPG

    Neat little video. I like how the passenger just debarks off the back of the bike. The Bucos look good on the bike.

    Oh man, brings back memories... countless miles as a teenager riding gravel roads without a second thought. Wind in your face, girlfriend on the back without a care in the world. Priceless.

    1964 r 60/2

    White grips and some beat up suspension tells me this is a prop-bike that may have been used in a bunch of movies, still neat to see them instead of that leaky noisy V-twin they always used.

    An early, pre '65 /2 was used in the movie "The Stand" it had a side car attached and was part of the first half of that movie.
