Rebirth of Cool
We have seen this beautiful BMW concept brought back to life on lots of sites recently. It’s the 1934 BMW R7 prototype designed by engineer Alfred Böning. After living in a box all these years it has recently been restored to its former glory by a team of BMW restorers. Unfortunately they never went into production of this bike. God only knows why? (even he may be confused). The story goes that this art deco masterpiece would have been too heavy and too expensive to manufacture. To say this bike would have been a classic is an understatement. We still can’t believe it was created over 70 years ago… that’s timeless design. For more pics visit Retro Things.
