It will never get tested under real-world conditions, but Revival Cycles' hand-made BMW Landspeeder is a masterpiece of engineering all the same. Built for display purposes, Revival considered it a shame that his piece of fine-tuned machinery would never discover liberation on the open road. Still, at the request of a client, they built the bike anyways as if it had the ability to.

Taking inspiration from the 1928 BMW R37 racer driven by Ernst Henne, a record-breaking motorcycle that was as fast as it was uniquely constructed, Revival's interpretation of the bike features a lengthened wheelbase, a flat-cut steel frame, custom stainless hardware and leather finishes. Revival Cycles have revealed that they've begun to fabricate a working version of the bike, which will allow them to truly revel in their work.

The Revival Landspeeder will make its only public appearance this April at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas.
