sot: BMW stationary engines


Recommended Posts

One recent post brought up an idea in me. We all know BMW made stationary engines in the past.

Here is one of the video posted on another thread:

I seached the net for information about them. I found almost nothing.

I am sure someone here has something or is aware of some info...or how about a real one siting in a barn...

My goal would be to find pictures, and make a minitature model of such thing. I am playing with model steam engines (PM RESEARCH)...

That would be just nice to make a live miniature repro...

i contacted BMW archives, they will get back to me with wathever they find, but they sent me a link to their archives about that, it shows several motorcycle engines used as either agricultural purposes or "other engines" as they recal.

Their site is truly amazing.


you can order a certificate of autheticity for your clasic BMW (55$eur)

tons of vintage pictures.

the one below is from 1918...it freaks the hell out of me...on the left the unlucky farmer withtout a tractor...and on the right the healty farmer with his BMW tractor...
