R50/2 1967


3x matching number.
Attractive motorbike in good technical condition, smooth gear changes,  ignition works fine. The engine block is still fairly untampered with.  Great basic model for a technical overview and to take for a ride, or complete restore it to  new condition without having to spend forever looking for genuine parts.
