Nice fraudster. The only possible BMW part is the headstock plate.

What a joke. First of all they never made an 850cc engine back then. The lead link/forks are all wrong, headlight, speedometer, gas tank, looks like valve covers on a DNEPR and probably is except even the fuel tank doesn't match a DNEPR. Nothing matches up or looks anything like the photos of my R50 or R69S that I had back in the late 50's. I know Beemer's and a BMW it's not :x

Hard to tell the exact provenance of everything from those lousy photos but it looks like a regular old Dnepr MT-11 with goofy Harley aftermarket accessories and a non-KMZ tub (hinges on the trunk) -- could be Chang, could be IMZ. Bike looks like it may have started out as a solo by the dual blinkers on the tug. I think I spy with my little eye an "inertial supercharger" tube connecting the two intakes, which makes me think it might be a "Yuri special".

$3k tops if it runs and it's being generous. Subtract $1k if title says it's a BMW.

I sent him this. "This is not a BMW. It is a Dnepr made in Ukraine."
His reply. "Ok thanks"

The jugs stick out the sides. If he put a roundel on it some sucker would probably grab it.

Yes looks like a "bottlecap" spare wheel which I'm not sure will fit the Dnepr at all (will it?) Probably came with the sidecar. IMZ-branded spare wheel retaining nut, too :)

The seller may have not had a clue what the bike was and maybe their or their friends best guess was a Beamer. How many people know what they're looking when you get UDF'd?

He knows now. I told him yesterday, and he replied, but the add has not changed.

We should spam him with "not a BMW, you're committing fraud" mails :)
