Art Deco Treasure: NMOTO presents the Nostalgia Project, inspired by the legendary BMW R7 prototype.

October 13 / Miami, FL – NMOTO, a motorcycle manufacturing company in Miami, FL, presents the Nostalgia project: a beautiful design inspired by the 1934 BMW R7. The primary objective of the Nostalgia project was more than simply creating a scale accurate look of the R7; NMOTO aimed to adapt the design to a modern chassis, taking into account the features of the serial BMW R nineT so as not to lose any modern performance dynamic.

Attention to Detail
The Nostalgia project is a one-of-a-kind endeavor to capture the ambition of the ill-fated BMW R7. With comfortable suspension and unique steering mechanisms encased in a canonical design inspired by the BMW R7 pre-war prototype, the Nostalgia motorcycle gives enthusiasts a slice of the past without sacrificing performance or rider experience.

In just 9 months from concept and final product, the Nostalgia project is an aerodynamic, hand-crafted masterpiece. It’s streamlined profile mimics the dimensions of the 1934 prototype despite it’s modern R nineT base. Primarily constructed of aluminum, the final product is lighter than both stock BMW R nineT and the prototype from which it gets its design inspiration.

NMOTO designers didn’t stop with a beautiful exterior. The entire electrical system was also re-designed to accommodate this unprecedented project. The Nostalgia project imitates vintage design by reincorporating the ignition lock and speedometer into the headlamp housing, though both parts are modernized. LED indicator lights and a keyless ignition system were both worked into the redesign of the R nineT electrical system, which is mostly concealed within the framework itself. NMOTO also takes special pride in the exhaust system on the Nostalgia project, which is completely handcrafted in-house using stainless steel.

A Legendary Inspiration
“One of the most important, innovated and visually stunning motorcycles ever produced”
BMW Motorcycle Magazine, Issue #3 (http://bmwmcmag.com/)

The BMW R7 is one of the most innovative motorcycles of its time. It introduced the telescopic front fork, had a concealed gas tank, and also featured an 800 cubic cm boxer M208 engine with a solid cast crankshaft. Despite this, many of the technical advancements found in the R7 weren’t seen again until 1969. Unfortunate timing and high manufacturing cost also buried the unique art deco design of the R7 for decades until it was rediscovered in 2005. Thankfully for motorcycle enthusiasts, the BMW R7’s original prototype was completely restored and reintroduced to the world at Pebble Beach in 2012.

Jay Leno states: “It’s very Art Deco, it’s just beautiful, what a wonderful piece of machine”.

Small-Scale Production and Customization Options
The re-emergence of the 1934 BMW R7 in 2007 ignited a buzzing excitement in motorcycle fans everywhere. In the early stages of development, the Nostalgia project was of huge public interest, even without widespread publicity, resulting in numerous pre-orders. Because of this, NMOTO decided to create small scale serial models, equipping the Miami-based workshop with modern equipment and enlisting the help of world-class specialists.

With 11 color combinations, adjustable steering and seat trim finish, NMOTO offers customers the broadest customization options. The rear of the motorcycle can be equipped with a luggage trunk or passenger seat, or customers can opt for a manual gear shift mount on the tank in the style of pre-war motorcycles.

Sobre a R7:
The BMW R7 is truly a one-of-a-kind motorcycle that was introduced as a concept in 1934, but never produced. It did, however, inspire the R17 and R5 models. It was built during the height of the Art Deco movement, which is apparent by its very precise design that adheres to the standard mathematical basis of the Art Deco style, and is truly a pleasing piece.

After its conception, the R7 slipped away and was thought to be lost until it was rediscovered in 2005 and fully restored. It bears all black body panels with white outlines. Its wire wheels are painted a deep black to match the rest of the body. The body was like no other bike at the time, boasting smooth lines and fenders that partially wrapped around the wheels. Covering the engine are pieces of formed sheet metal to aid its aerodynamic qualities. Even the exposed cylinder heads are formed into a more aerodynamic dome shape.

The R7 boasts an 800 cc boxer engine that Leonhard Ischinger designed for BMW. It boasts a forged, 1-piece crankshaft for extra strength, and 1-piece cylinders and cylinder heads. Since the camshaft was under the crankshaft, the cylinders were positioned higher, leading to more effective valve positioning and even more ground clearance than the typical bike of the era. Coming off of the engine are two chrome fish-fin exhaust pipes.

This bike boasts a 4-speed manual transmission. Instead of the traditional foot shifter, the 1934 R7 boasts a car-style gear shifter to the right of the fuel filler cap.

There is no price placed on this bike, as it is a one-of-a-kind example that has never been sold on the open market. We are sure it would fetch upwards of $1 million at auction. We’ll never know, as its original discoverers are still in ownership and show no desire to sell it.
