BMW R12 Motorbike German No1 During WW2

I really like the BMW R12 Motorbike made by the German during WW2 and really obsess to ride it if I had a chance soon. The bike was similar with the British Model 1940 Norton 16H also used during WW2 which apparently one of my father collection. Since the part of the 1940 Norton 16H already extinct, the motorbike was placed at our backyard garage but don't worry it was covered with plastic warping and safe from rust. My intention to store it was to get a high bid from my relative who are really want to buy it. My farther serve with the Royal Malaysian Force, 2nd Regiment 2nd Batalion ( 1965-1978) and bought it from a backyard of a British Officer somewhere in Perak in 1966. My Father call it " Crayam" and after all this year I still do not understand it at all why he call it "Crayam". The above picture is not my father motorbike. Later I will show you all the motorbike.
