I have decided to place the beautiful R11 Machine for sale.

Potential buyers must have picture ID. To prevent fraud.

Contact:  Martin Fischer/mrtnfischer@yahoo.com/ call 570 815 6294 or text me at that number. Located near Scranton, PA.

It;s history with me included to showings in the AMCA For judging. The first showing was at the Sunshine Club in Daytona and the R11 received 96 out of 100 points.  The 2nd showing of the R11 was at Rhinebeck, NY and it receiver 94 points. Major deductions were for the stainless steel bolts used in some of the coach work. Stainless was not available in 1933. The Machine starts and runs well.

Putting this up for sale is a difficult task as it will be like losing a dependable friend The initial offering price is $42,000, or an offer close to that. I have wanted to sell it as it needs to be shown more. When I went to Mecum auction in Las Vegas in January 2017, similar BMW machines (but not as rare) were going for more that $42K

Today, 12/16/2013 money was transferred overseas to Turin, Italy for a  Motorcycle for sale 1933 BMW R11, classic purchase. A great investment of long term value.

Since BMW first began to manufacture motorcycles after the Great War, in 1924, their intent was to make a product that would sell for years to come. BMW had been making motors for airplanes and other motorcycle manufactures for many years. They would continue making engines and motorcycles and still to this day are noted for their durability.

The R11 series was first made in 1929 and was produced till 1935 with a total of 75,000 being manufactures. It was the first to have the large 750cc engine horizontally opposed twin. This engine became a primary mover for BMW up through WWII. The R11 series was replaced with the R12 series which had the same size, side valve engine. Apparently the R11 type became a mainstay of the Wehrmacht as well as the R12 construction BASIS.

Not only was it a fast and reliable motorcycle for its time, many applauded the BMW traditional design as a “work of art”.

19667 912 and a 68 R60

19667 912 and a 68 R60

What am I tired of collecting British sport cars,? Where am I going? do I really need more stuff? Is the Man Cave full up? Am I getting old like the rolling stuff and just have forgotten how to relax? Is there this compulsion to save the things from the past, rebuild for future profit? Or am I doing it to keep busy? Well, atl east with bikes, they are interesting and sometimes difficult to ride  and it is fun to see and feel first hand just how far the evolution of the motorcycle has gone forward.(They really don’t take up much space as well). But, Just when I thought I was cured of this affliction and away from the mechanical steeds,I was shaken, stirred and consumed. I was weak and vulnerable, I was fast approaching over 70 years,  I had some excess cash,  my feet hurt and I need S.O. G. O T. Pot.   THAN, I was struck once more, like a mighty sword from above, THOR had me in his sights, HIS HAMMER was an Earle’s fork. Being struck does mean only visually and  over the head. But enough of the whys, the bearer of the Earles fork was ahead, an R60/2 1967. Below the story begins It was a sunny and balmy day, I and my friend,  Joe B, a fellow native northeast PA person,. and I traveled to Eustis,  Florida during the March 2014 Bike Week in Daytona Beach. It was a lucky and unlucky chance visit. The God’s of thrift, and beauty, combined with the sins of gluttony and greed,  forced me to make a commitment to a R60/2. that had rolled off a trailer and being the last day of the flea market, the owner,  Doug Phillips, who had this bike as a first bike and was used as a daily driver in Michigan. For over 14 years.  Doug, drove this bike to jobs and fun places. So when I looked at the 88,000 miles, I was not concerned as bike are made to be ridden, especially the R60. Doug informed me that he had replaced pistons with .020 over and new rings. Other work had been done on the electrical, engine valves as well as gasket work on the push rod tubes. He said that he has maintained it quite well over the 14 years he had continuously driven the R60 and it was in good shape. It was a little dirty with some minor surface rust but that was to be expected. Everything was original. After a brief drive with the r 60 over the Eustis Fairgrounds, with  little dips, some gravel and pavement, it was affection at first sitting. The unique Earle’s front fork gave a stable and solid ride with no indications of problems in the handling. It started easily with a brief down stroke on the starter lever after a tickling of the carburetor bowls. Later I was to find out that it can be temperamental and that starting is a “Leaned Process”. Next thing I new, a price was established, a down payment was made and a pickup arranged. But at the AMCA (Antique Motorcycle Club of America show at Silver Sands area near the Cabbage Patch on Tomoka Road. South Daytona area). The recently acquired R-11 was shown and received a wonderful award of 96.5 points out of a possible 100. What a delight.

 ***Author’s Note: for information in detail go the the official Cannonball web site fro all the entries, winners and losers and their respective positions. Many of the participants have their own web sites that can give more information than myself.

Who would have guessed, after seeing a poster someplace in Wyoming in the smallest town in America (population 2), that was also noted for the coldest beer in town.  That I, Martin, Would be involved in the Cannonball. Yes, the poster was real and I kept a ear peeled for more news. Later that summer, in Daytona Beach, I attended a monthly meeting of the Daytona Beach BMW club. There, attending was a Joe Gimple. I had arrived a few minutes late only to hear Joe announce hat he would be entering is late 1920’s BMW motorcycle. It was there in the garage where the meeting was held and I was desirous to see the start and possible the finish of the Cannonball run this year.Above, see Joe Gimple getting ready to leave The Hilton in Milwaukee for Iowa. One of Joe’s back up person and van driver is on the right.

I than thought that I could take some quality pictures and supply them to the magazine On The Level, produced for the BMW Riders Association, a BMW motorcycle magazine.


The first day I went to Newburg, NY to find the start of the Cannonball. I found them at the Hilton Garden in Newburg. Many of the teams of riders, mechanics helpers and drivers were arriving and putting the machines in the best possible mechanical condition to begin the race.

During the first day, I was busy shooting pictures with my Nikon Digital using the fine setting for use in the  later publication for the BMWRA.

Some of the first impressions of the large crowd gathered in the parking lots of the Hilton was amazing. Just to see the vast variety of machine, BSA’s, BMW’s Excelsiors, Hendersons, Harley Davidson’s, Indians, Sunbeam, just to name some. The parking lots were ablaze with lights at night as large trailers and work trucks belonging to the contestants fired up their generators to work on the bike.

Well stocked repair and parts chase trailer


The next day the start of the event was at the Motorcycle Museum, a few miles from the Hotel. The exodus from the Hilton was an event by it’self. At 6 Am the activity began and machine were starting to leave for the Museum. Many of the machine emitted their own flavor and scent of smoke, so the early cool morning, mixed the dew with the bluish smoke and a smell of castor oil to one of synthetic lube, not a bad thing.

Darly was later to crash on the west coast and retired from the race with a broken bone and a severly damaged classic.
