I thought about publishing this a while back and decided against it but with the recent questions regarding serial numbers maybe now's the time. This list was scanned in from a small book published by BMW AG called "Parts Service Booklet - Survey of Chassis Numbers." I've only posted the motorcycle numbers, the book includes cars and some marine and industrial engines. 'Hope this isn't something everybody already has. If so, I apologize in advance for the WOB.
