Chief Archivist, BMW Group Classic

Fred has long helped both the club and we fanatic vintage BMW owners. His team provides information to owners about the origins of their bikes and has provided the club with access to information, photos and articles from Group Classic (neé Mobile Tradition). He recently finished a book detailing BMW's aero engine development through the end of WWII, which was simultaneously published in English and German. In spite of such serious researches, Fred is fun and personable, and he and his girl friend Sybille are often seen at BMW motorcycle events in Europe and, far too occasionally, here in the US.
