1928 BMW Landspeeder Interpretation By Revival Cycles.

bmwlandspeeder1bmwlandspeeder2bmwlandspeeder3bmwlandspeeder4Partners Alan Stulberg and Stefan Hertel at Revival Cycles think that “a motorcycle should be more than a machine, an aesthetic expression that demonstrates the beauty of purposeful form.” The Austin shop has built some remarkable motorcycles and this modern interpretation of the record-breaking 1928 BMW R37 ridden by Ernst Henne is another example of their passion for the craft. There is no light, no battery on this machine because, although rideable (see video below) it will end up being exhibited in shows or kept in a private collection. A rebuilt airhead engine, a custom frame built from flat-cut steel instead of tubing, no brakes, a signature exhaust ready to growl and you thrill just looking at it…

    No brakes? I hope they filmed that video on a long, closed, road!

    That is an interesting front end. Not sure if it is functional, but looks cool and unique.

    Almost Art-Deco. Too bad it is going to end up gathering dust in a private collection. Just for shits and grins they ought to light it up at Bonneville once to just say they did……………..

    Re: RBin Tex, I thought I was the only person that thought this bike was ugly after reading nothing but the highest praises. I have liked all the other bikes out of this shop but this one missed the mark by a mile as far as I’m concern.

    Put some brakes on that B and ride the piss out of it.

    Definitely not my usual cup of tea, but i like it. It goes against most of what I usually like about custom bikes….but that’s also why I like it!

    Not a big fan of “Beemers”
    But that is one good looking bike
