BMW Café Racers what is now a four-part series of (25 cm x 25 cm) books authored by Uli Cloesen for Publishing.

The first of the series was BMW Motorcycles: Choppers, Cruisers, Trikes Quads. reviewed by truly back in June of (Was it really that ago? Seems like yesterday. ).

I didn’t know at the time there would be a series of books. and perhaps neither did (or the author).

But here it is, almost two years later and we have can be considered Part 2 of the series, BMW Racers . Also released is the wild ‘n’ crazy Custom Motorcycles: Choppers, Bobbers, Trikes Quads and now I’m very curious the last of the current series, Custom Motorcycles: Cruisers, Ditto. .

I didn’t quite what to make of BMW Custom . but BMW Café Racers makes a lot sense to me. In fact, for me it was the original BMW racer, the BMW R90S (background), was one of my first BMW objets de convoitise .

The R90S was and is one of the most classic, motorcycles of all time, no ifs, buts or any two ways about it.


like I wrote in my review of BMW Motorcycles, BMW Motorrad seems to be phobic about even a reference to their past, less bringing out a modern Airhead model to celebrate it. just as true today even though it is rumored BMW will release the NineT, a retro, this year at the 2013 BMW Motorrad Days .

The NineT (or whatever it ends up called) remains to be seen, but so far the haven’t kept me up at night Instead of really stretching and what would have the true Last of the Airheads, BMW apparently use the old and somewhat troublesome engine for what appears to be a mild makeover of a generic

What makes it unfortunate is could/should be — hinted at in BMW Café Racers book. are some awesome BMW café shown here in 205 (count color photographs, big as life. talking everything from the 1925 BMW R37 to Yuri Shif’s custom two-engined (placed and back-to-back!) BMW Airhead custom simply has to be the single most BMW ever made.

And yes, classic R90S is in there Don’t forget the K1100 Brick; BMW’s No, we’re not four-cylinder water-pumpers. Believe it or there are some pretty customs.

I mean café racer-ed around also. Not to mention sweet-looking Ural café — can you imagine that?

BMW Racers is short on text and on photos, and any BMW lover will this book. When I BMW Customs . I wasn’t sure to make of it. But now that I’ve 3 volumes out of the 4-pack, I get it. You’ll want all four.

Example: In the book Italian Motorcycles (review). there’s a chopper, among others. in for a treat!
