The unique motorcycle offered here is the creation of Jean-Luc Dupont and his team at Panda Moto 89 in Villeneuve-sur-Yonne, south east of Paris, a dealership famous for its BMW-based customs. Inspired by the very first BMW motorcycle – the R32 of 1923 – it uses a custom-made frame and is powered by a modern R1200GS engine. 'Harley-Davidson has built its reputation on having their motorcycles as a modern interpretation of the past. I wanted to do the same for BMW and where better to start than BMW's first motorcycle, the R32?' said Jean-Luc. A modern interpretation of the iconic R32 built using current technology, this astonishing machine abounds in special features including a hand gearchange for the six-speed gearbox; a foot-operated clutch; rear-view mirrors mounted on the cylinder heads; copper fuel lines; and rear disc brake disguised as a drum. Everywhere one looks there are delightful surprises. Completed in 2010 after 16 months work, this Herculean project consumed over 600 man-hours and cost around €70,000. Offered with French Carte Grise, the 'R1232' has covered only 4 kilometres since completion and is presented in effectively 'as new' condition. A never-to-be-repeated opportunity for the serious BMW collector.

Inspirée par la toure première moto BMW – la R32 de 1923 – elle utilise un cadre sur mesures et un moteur R1200 GS moderne. « Harley-Davidson a bâti son succès sur des motos qui réinterprètent des modèles du passé. J'ai voulu faire de même pour BMW et quoi de mieux pour commencer que la première « BM », la R32 ? » dit Jean-Luc. Interprétation moderne de l'emblématique R32 construite elon la technologie d'aujourd'hui, cette étonnante machine regorge de caractéristiques originales tells qu'un sélecteur de vitesses manuel pour la boîte à six rapports, un embrayage au pied, des rétroviseurs montés sur les culasses, des canalisations d'essence en cuivre et un disque de frein arrière dissimulé dans un tambour. Tout ce que l'on examine dévoile de délicieuses surprises.

Offerte avec sa carte grise française, la « R1232 » qui n' a parcouru que 4 km au total se présente effectivement « comme neuve » et comme une magnifique et unique opportunité pour tout collectionneur sérieux de BMW.
