Renowned artist and bike builder Rolf Reick of Krautmotors was commissioned by BMW Motorrad to build a motorcycle in honor of the Bauhaus art school movement’s 100th birthday. Dubbed the Bauhaus 100, the motorcycle is a combination of BMW’s old and new, featuring a BMW R60/6 for the skeleton-frame, a custom-built tank, exhaust, forks, seat , and plenty more. Inspiration was drawn from Marcel Breuer’s ‘Lounge Chair’, a former student at the Bauhaus from 1923-1928.
It is powered by the all-new engine from the recently released BMW F 850GS, and rides on classic 19-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels with custom moon discs and wrapped up in vintage rubber.
The incredible Bauhaus 100 BMW F 850GS tribute bike is fully functional, but is primarily designed as an exhibition vehicle. Charming, but not to everyone’s taste.
