Hello. I am wondering if anyone knows who gathered and/or maintains the information in the PDF document which lists 200 examples of this model. Were the specific serial numbers which are listed in the document provided by members of the site? Thanks, Jeff

Jeff - I am the one who put

Jeff -

I am the one who put those pages and the PDF together. The information came from many sources, some from this forum, my own bike, online registries, ebay/craigslist sales, etc. I tried to scrub the info so that there are no references to specific individuals or their bikes. My goal was to try and create a fluid listing of model years and VIN numbers. It is not totally accurate in terms of years models as BMW never really identified bikes during the /2 era, but rather it is an attempt to fit model years of this era into the September to August timeframe for what year a bike belonged to. For example, a bike built between September 1967 and August 1968 would be considered a 1968 model.
