The 1937 BMW R7: Restored to Perfection

1934-bmw_r7_1

Is this not one of the most beautiful motorcycles you’ve ever seen?  Consider yourself lucky you’re seeing it.  This vintage BMW was locked away in a crate for almost 70 years, until that crate was cracked in June of 2005.  This 1937 BMW R7 was only a concept motorcycle at the time, a vehicle built for speed but never intended for mass production.  Since the crate was opened, this R7 has been faithfully restored to its original state and is currently touring European bike shows.  If this unique BMW R7 were ever to hit the auction block, you can almost bet that it’ll set records.  There is no way this amazing motorcycle would sell for anything less than priceless.
