81 Years of BMW - A Gallery of BMW Motorcycle Pictures

By Walter F. Kern

Pictures of BMW Motorcycles

We present here BMW motorcycle pictures of BMW models from 1923 over 81 years of production. These BMW motorcycle pictures were submitted by Motorcycle Views visitors.

BMW began selling motorcycles long before any BMW automobiles were even thought of. A BMW motorcycle picture gallery called "81 Years of BMW" is provided that gives a picture and description for each model year from 1923 to 2003.

Now it's true that after World War II, BMW was in a rebuilding period and did not produce any motorcycles for 1945-1947 and only 59 for 1948. So, there will be no pictures for those years unless you happen to have one of the rare 1948 models.BMW motorcycle picture

One of the biggest features on the Motorcycle Views site is Moto Pics, where visitors to the site can display and describe their motorcycles. There are a few BMWs in Moto Pics. To get the new gallery going, I have extracted my favorite BMW pictures from Moto Pics and from the old site.

We Need Your Help

There are still many years in the gallery without a picture. That's where you come in. We want you to help us complete this gallery by submitting a picture and description of your BMW -- the older the better. These pictures will also become part of the Moto Pic Gallery. There will only be one picture for each year placed in the "81 Years of BMW" gallery. Since I am continually reviewing the best picture for each year, new submissions for a year already listed may bump the current picture.

Note that the gallery is being expanded to bring the BMW models to the current year and to use larger pictures for new submissions. For the time being, I will be keeping the same title.
