Celebrations of the past can look awful – the Chrysler PT Cruiser perhaps the best example of horridness personified. But BMW have outdone themselves with the R nine T, a boxer engine four-stroke, that nods to BMW's first bike, the R32, released in 1923.
Now the bike’s been given a customisation make-over by four young designers. Lovely.
Here's a video showing the customised beasts at work. Apologies for the painful amount of indie leather and mustachio. Just focus on the bike, okay?
