Art Deco Masterpiece: the 1934 BMW R7 Prototype

D+R Reader John points us the recently unearthed and restored 1934 BMW R7. Only a snip of the magazine article about the rebirth is online, but it seems to have been nearly forgotten and languishing in a box in a BMW basement. A romantic tale, to be sure.

BMW R7 in BMW Motorcycle Magazine #3 (via New Cafe Racer Society) Thanks, John!
