Today, NMoto is launching an even more exclusive model – the Nostalgia Limited Edition, which is a commemoration of the 85 th anniversary of BMW’s singular R7 masterpiece.

We’ve developed unique plating baths, merging the techniques of jewelry and chrome plating. It is far more difficult to do than chrome. The primary challenge is achieving an absolutely flawless surface finish on the large aluminum body panels. The shape of the panels, achieved by hand-shaping, has to be flawless before going to the plating process.

Each Nmoto 85th Anniversary Limited Edition has a host of options for engine engraving, leatherwork and precious metals – all requiring intricate and demanding disciplines. For example, plating body panels with gold and platinum requires completely different production processes and accuracy, which is more akin to jewelry making than a motorcycle manufacturing.

1 OF 10 LIMITED EDITION.

With this limited run, Nostalgia is evolving an atelier capability. Each owner can personalize elements like the leather, gauges, timepiece, and the unique engraving of the cylinder covers and other panels. Cylinder covers are milled from billet aluminium. Here, they are etched with Mt. Rushmore, but any design that fits the alloy “canvas” can be specified by the customer. Note the other body panel component proclaiming, “We The People.”

Side panels, fenders and top cover are platinum. Rims are gold-plated. Gold inlay is used throughout. Those commissioning a bike are encouraged to let imagination run wild. Motorcycles are far simpler than automobiles, but potential customers should understand they’re commissioning a piece of jewelry.

THE ART OF CRAFTSMANSHIP

Anniversary Limited Edition
eee

All body panels for Nostalgia are handcrafted from aluminum. When we paint these panels, they are very close to perfection and the primer and paint cover any minor imperfections that may exist” explains NMoto Chief Engineer Christian Travert.

“To plate with materials like platinum, however, you must make the aluminum like a piece of glass. The work is way more intensive and requires absolute perfection.

We must plate with three layers – copper, nickel and then platinum,” says Travert. “Copper is the foundation, then with each step we must re-polish and then re-polish again.

There can be no mistakes, no imperfection, and it’s a very time-consuming and complicated process

PASSION FOR RIDING

Collectors know that vintage motorcycles require constant maintenance and attention, which is why they are more often kept as collectibles than for utility.

NMOTO believes that the primary pleasure in motorcycle ownership is in riding, which is why we created the Nostalgia project. Beyond just being beautiful, it is reliable and comfortable enough to drive every day
