9. 1925 Bohmerland

Barber Museum 1925 Bohmerland

Made in Czechoslovakia and powered by a 600cc single, the Bohmerland was a rather sophisticated motorcycle for 1925 standards. It features a leading link front suspension and cast wheels, which didn’t become standard fare on motorcycles until the ’70s.

Obviously, what sets the Bohmerland apart is its sheer size. Three different wheelbases were offered, the longest spanning over 10 feet and able to carry four passengers! This particular 1925 example fits three. Bohmerland had a relatively short existence (1924 – 1939) due to the outbreak of the war, but in that time around 1000 examples were made. Not many are still around, and this is the oldest one known to exist.

    It’s a shame the photos are such low-resolution. On my 1024×768 monitor they’re only 1/4 the size of the screen — on my 1920×1080 they’d look like postage stamps. Beautiful and rare bikes deserve high res details.
