Click here for the full history of the machine. A little lighter on the wallet is a 1936 735cc R17 (top), the most powerful roadster BMW built from 1935 - 1952 (until the R68 arrived). I road-tested the previous model (a 1929 R16) two years ago; the pressed-steel frame BMW 750 is a fantastic vintage roadster. I'll be at the auction; expect an update.
