The name says it all: Mobile Tradition. More than 200,000 enthusiasts the world over have joined forces within approximately 600 brand clubs ensuring that the history of BMW lives on - a world record.
And when it comes to "living on", the fans and aficionados of the brand take things very literally: The overwhelming majority of the worldwide fleet of classic BMWs made up of more than 200,000 cars and 70,000 motorcycles are not parked somewhere in museums and garages where they just gather dust, but are rather driven actively on the road.
This is attributable not only to the robust BMW technology of way back then, but rather and above all the supply of parts today.
The stock of parts covered by BMW Mobile Tradition comprises some 24,000 individual items, most of them parts for classic cars and motorcycles introduced after 1948.
So the enthusiast wishing today to live out his youth dream of a BMW 2002 or R 75/5 need not worry about repair and maintenance: "We want every BMW classic with two, three or four wheels to receive full approval and homologation by the motor traffic authorities" - this is the philosophy of BMW Mobile Tradition.
