BMW Museum, Munich, Germany

Bonhams is privileged to announce the dispersal sale of the Willy Neutkens Collection of important BMW motorcycles to be held at the BMW Museum, Munich on 28th November 2009. A legend among BMW collectors, the late Willy Neutkens (1925-2008) assembled the world's largest collection of motorcycles representing the Bavarian marque, earning him an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for owning the most examples of a single make. The collection consists of almost every model built since BMW commenced motorcycle production in 1923, including the very last of the old-style, twin-cylinder 'Boxers'. The latter – an R100 Classic – was specially delivered to Neutkens by BMW and remains unused. Read more about the collection at
