Mo­tor­cy­cle own­ers like to talk about the feel­ing of free­dom that comes from rid­ing their bikes. Alan Stul­berg and Ste­fan Her­tel, the co­founders of Re­vival Cy­cles in Austin, Texas, de­rive that sen­sa­tion from de­sign­ing and build­ing cus­tom projects such as the one of­fered for this gift. “Once we have con­trol of the en­tire build, all the op­tions open up, and we can come up with more in­ter­est­ing ways to blend the form and func­tion,” says Her­tel.

That’s what they did with the Henne Re­vival BMW Land­speeder (shown here). The Land­speeder is based on the 1928 BMW R37 that Ernst Henne rode at record­break­ing speeds in the late 1920s and into the mid-1930s. The client com­mis­sioned the Land­speeder to be a static dis­play. But Re­vival built the bike so that it can be rid­den, as it does with all of its projects.

Her­tel says most cus­tom projects take about six months to com­plete. re­vival­cy­cles.com ≠
