During the height of the Art Deco movement, BMW developed and a built a very special prototype motorcycle inspired by the style that was so unlike anything else the brand had produced it would never see production. The BMW R7 prototype would eventually become a box of parts in a shed before it was rediscovered and rebuilt by the team at BMW Classic. Despite how interesting the bike and the story are, it wasn’t a bike you’d ever be able to ride around the streets. That’s where Florida-based Nmoto comes in. Nmoto took a modern BMW R nineT motorcycle and set about turning it into the Nostalgia custom you see here that’s inspired by the original R7. Sweeping aluminum bodywork including covered engine internals that is further punctuated by expert pinstriping. Partially open fenders (complete with name plate on the front) surrounding wire wheels. Custom fishtail exhaust and headlight/speedometer combo. It has all the design talking points of the original bike it’s based on, but since it’s built with modern internals and custom parts, utilizing the 110 hp engine to hit the top speed of 140 mph is both easy and comfortable. According to some reports, if you have one of the new BMW R nineT motorcycles, Nmoto will convert it to the work of art you see here for just under $40k.
