It's a BMW R69s, which were built throughout the 1960s.
Tank not the original, but a later long-range tank, more suitable for the sidecar work. Worth a lot nowadays. Cylinders look upgraded from the original 594cc too???

Correction : that's an R75/5 motor in the R69s cycle parts.
That's why the cylinders looked bigger than original and explains the bigger tank.
R75/5 were built until 1980 afaik. Revise price downwards.
