Revival BMW Landspeeder

A custom built motorcycle inspired by the classic figure of 1928 BMW R37, a racing motorcycle ridden by the famous German rider named Ernst Henne, when he broke the world record in speed in early 1930s.

And it was Revival Cycles, an Austin-based home modification tried to build a motorcycle as an attempt to revive the 'spirit' of BMW R37 with a quite radical look and given the name of Revival BMW Landspeeder.

The story is just as unusual as the custom motorcycle itself and started when a customer asks to be made a motorcycle that is appropriate for display in a gallery. The customer intention to make 20 motorcycles and hire at least five custom builders simultaneously. 

"All we really knew was that Max Hazan was building one, and we were building one. Of course, we were interested!" told Alan Stulberg of Revival Cycles as quoted of Bikeexif.

Alan was given full creative freedom, subject to budget. "Not the first time that’s happened, but it was the first time we knew a motorcycle would never be ridden by its owner—and did not need to be street legal."

Motorcycle's frame do not use aluminum and replacing steel chassis were formed in such a way, but with the wheelbase a slightly elongated several inches than the inspiration motorcycle model.

The original fork is still maintained because it is capable of holding the motorcycle even lauched more than 150 km/h. But at the rear coupled with preload kinematic adjustable swing arms. Work on the chassis and legs takes up more than six weeks.

After all parts installed precision, then the design of the handlebars and the seat were made so exotic. The next step is to apply the engine BMW R100 connected with two classic design exhausts. "I want all of them are not only elegant but also works perfectly," continued Alan.
Now for the color, if the whole body of the custom motorcycle is painted in black matte, and let its engine chrome-plated as well as the exhaust color was gold. These reincarnation results of 1920s racing motorcycle have been exhibited in a costumfest event which held in Austin, Texas in April and at the same time meant to welcome the MotoGP event in 2016.
