Any pictures? :)
Is the bike previously restored or as found condition?

This page gives you some frame number ranges - http://www.autogallery.org.ru/bmwr35.htm

Hi,

concerning the R35, always check that it ain't a re"BMW"ed postwar EMW;
got any pics of the stamps? also the "Typenschild"?

Most of BMW archives from during the war have been destroyed but for R12 you could be lucky
that they still have records :)

Here is a pic of the stamp and engine number. The engine number was from the last batch that was made in 1940 and you can also see the waffentstamp.
