Airhead Retrospective: 25 Years Of BMW


With so many great custom motorcycle shows happening around the country, spawning a builder-culture that is fast chopping and bobbing these old bikes out of existence, the spirit of the original designs sometimes get lost.

To celebrate these old BMW’s in all their factory-correct originality we assembled a representative sampling of bone-stock bikes from 1970-1995. We hosted the bikes at a gathering next door at Moto Borogotaro, where attendees could walk down the line and take in the progression first hand. For anyone who couldn’t make it, we spun the bikes around on a lazy Susan and photographed them for posterity.

Check out the website for a full interactive look (360-degree Pan-o-Vision!) at 18 bikes representing 11 major model-series — all classic Airheads made by BMW from 1970-1995.
