This has to be one of the coolest self-imposed challenges we’ve seen in ages. MAX BMW Motorsports, Brookfield, Mass., is building a “new” 1975 BMW R90S from parts sourced new from BMW. According to a MAX press release, the project started with a simple question, can you build a vintage BMW from new BMW parts? The answer would appear to be yes.

Ladies and gentlemen, here we go. After more than a year of planning, we are beginning to build a vintage BMW from NEW PARTS ordered directly from BMW. Modeled on a 1975 R90 S, this bike is composed of parts sourced from BMW’s extensive catalog of new parts for old motorcycles. This is a challenge that began as a simple question and has evolved into a project that has involved a lot of research and planning. Today, we begin the final stage: the build.
