Man, the scale on that morphed out wild bmw is freakin' me out! It either has 10" lawn tractor tires or the biggest damn drum brakes I've ever seen on a bike! Freaky man. I think I want to build it!

Thanks for posting all the pics everyone. Inspiration is drawn from such things!

That's what it looks like to me. Too bad they didn't last as an original company, it would be interesting to see how the Indian evolved.

Unless I am misatken it is an EMW350 engine. These were built for a while after WW2 in East Germany by the Russians and are more or less an overbored BMW R25 single. Saw one in the flesh in East Germany in '89 and the engines are a sweet looking unit.

Yeah, I think it was in Iron Horse also. Right before the mag went under. Very clean chop.

Hey Justchopit,

I freakin' love the shock setup on that ride. Do you know who built it and how well it rides. I wonder if the compression rate is right.

Wow- nice pics- I have no freakin' idea what I am looking at- except that the plunger rear suspension reminds me of the Ural/Dnepner

THAT FIRST BLACKE BMW IS NICE,, JUST NOT BOBBER STYLE, THATS AN EARLY BEEMER LIKE A LATE 20 EARLY 30S R32. THE FIRST YEAR OF PROD WAS 1925 AND THAT BIKE LOOKS COMPLETELY STOCK, A BOBBER GETS IS NAME FROM "BOBBING THINGS LIKE FENDERS AND UNWANTED WIEGHT OFF THE VEHICLE , A STOCK BIKE IS HARLY BOBBER STYLE, THE REST OF THE BIKES LOOK LIKE A ART SHOW AND A BIG DOG DEALERSHIP WENT THROUGH A MEAT GRINDER AND THATS WHAT CAME OUT. COUPLE OF THE BIKES ARE OK.
