    BMW K1. Dream bike or nightmare?

    BMW made 'old cock engines'. That was clearly the perception of the more dynamic motorcyclists after the arrival of the large, fast Japanese four-cylinder. But sturdy blond techies with square foreheads above their blue eyes can of course also go crazy. Also at BMW. If you just give them the chance. So the BMW K1. Sea

    BMW 1502. Restrained farewell to an era.

    In August 1975 BMW presented its 3-series. It marked a new step in the luxury small middle class segment. Its predecessor, the BMW -02 series, had been important for the Bavarian manufacturer in this specific market area. The arrival of the newcomer did not mean the final goodbye to the -02 series. Because the BMW 1975 introduced in January 1502 was allowed to keep the honor of the -02 series high for a few more years.

    BMW Isetta. A unique and beloved dwarf car.

    In 1955, a special car model debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show. That model would become one of the most famous dwarf cars in history: the BMW Isetta. It caused a stir, just like the combination with the large V8 models from BMW. The construction with special deviating track widths and the fully hinged front end – which […] Sea

    Bad luck – column

    It's outdated, but I almost always stop in front of people (M/F or whatever) with bad luck. Except for lease knights and princesses. Because they have a structural mobility guarantee. Sea

    BMW 700. The most important car in the history of the brand

    In the 1950s, BMW faced many financial problems. It struggled with a completely incoherent model range. That included the Isetta and the V8 models (BMW 501 / 502). There was a gap between these model generations. While BMW made every effort in 1959 to keep Daimler-Benz out of doors, it was surprising with the arrival of the BMW 700. The model became an extremely important car in the history of BMW. Sea

    Life as in a reality show – column

    Once, a long time ago… Then there was the ANWB magazine Promotor. In the early days, the promoter had a pleasant, uninhibited, somewhat alert approach. The construction of the PromotorMotor fitted in with this. That was a fixer-upper bought on the Vehikel, a sloppy XS650. I was allowed to do the renovation completely to my own taste. Sea

    A bastard BMW

    Classic BMW drivers have a strong preference for originality. When Theo Terwel restored his BMW R68, the highlight of the search for original parts was the discovery of the original key for the lid of the tank compartment. Those are the details that appreciate a classic BMW for the pure enthusiasts / connoisseurs of the brand. Sea
