The Henne BMW Landspeeder Was Hand-Built By Revival Cycles

Henne BMW Landspeeder

The Texan shop Revival Cycles believes that motorcycles should be more than simple machines, as this incredible aesthetic expression demonstrates. The beautiful Henne BMW landspeeder, as this bike was called, is the team’s way of proving that sometimes overall aesthetics are more important than the technologically-advanced equipment on the bike.

Looking at this incredible project, I tend to agree with their vision, although I have to wonder how much cooler this bike would be if it was only powered by energy cells.

This hand-made motorcycle has been heavily influenced by Ernst Henne’s original ‘landspeeder’, the bike that helped him break 76 speed world records of land between 1929 to 1937. The Texan bike shop worked more than a month just on shaping the full aluminum bodywork and fairing and it was all worth it.

Keeping in line with the same theme, the aero-style valve covers and stainless hardware were all custom machined as well. Furthermore, the front suspension comes with a 24 degree setup, and includes a classic trailing link suspension, with a kinematic progressive linkage. What do you think of this amazing bike?
