P. Maratos's R51/3 that is believed to be an experimental model - the owners words below.

I'm sending pictures of a (non-restored yet) R51/3 that is a part of my private collection, a bike that I intend to restore its mechanical parts in the future. As you will remark is a very unusual series /3  so please note the completely different engine housing , the electrical side front cover ,the 1/4 spherical cover above the engine, and the pushrod hose matching. I believe is an experimental series 3, and the only think I know (by rumors) is that are produced about 2 to 5 pcs with 500 and 600cc , and perhaps one with 350cc, in the late '40s.

The dynamo isn't exactly the same , as the battery regler has to be moved completely under the stator-housing (not diagonaly-left where it usualy is) because of the different form of the alloy-cover  . Unfortunately no further informations are available by Bmw-classic in Munich, except if i give them the alloy-form number of the engine housing , located behind the flywheel, so they can check if they find the form - number in their archives...
