Well, here's a genuine unicorn that you just don’t see every day – and probably won’t even see again in your lifetime. The last of the airheads: it’s a black 1995 BMW R100GS PD in its factory crate. Odometer shows 99,895 miles, so it’s just waiting to be assembled and ridden from zero. This is as pristine as it gets and will get all the airhead freaks out there salivating. The bike is listed by New York’s respected purveyor of vintage motorcycles, Moto Borgotaro, on Bring a Trailer.

Limited to 50 each, you can enter a raffle now to win a chance to buy one. Get on this.
