BMW R11 750cc 1932

 

Since BMW first began to manufacture motorcycles after 1924, their intent was to make a product that would sell for years to come. BMW had been making motors for airplanes and other motorcycle manufacturers for many years. They would continue making engines and motorcycles and still to this day are noted for their durability.The R11 series was first made in 1929 and was produced till 1935, with a total of 7,500 being manufactured. It was the first to have the large 750-cc engine horizontally opposed twin. The R11 series was replaced with the R12 series, which had the same size side valve engine. Not only was it a fast and reliable motorcycle for its time, many applauded the BMW traditional design as a “work of art,” hence Art Deco school of design from 1920 into the mid 40′s.

 

The motorcycle was restored about 10 years ago. This example, which has been in a private museum for the last few years, has the original engine number, frame number and still has the original Typeplate.
