Maxime Cheng, the project designer of The Vintage Motorcycle of BMW R60/2, had 10,000 fellow LEGO Ideas users support his project and push it to the review stage. It is quite the achievement as he is just 14 years old – making him the youngest person to join the 10K Club.
“My favourite LEGO set is probably the Cool Cars set (#4939), because it was the one that first sparked my interest in LEGO. It was also my favourite set when I was four years old,” Maxime said in the interview.
There was a special reason for building the BMW in the first place. “I’ve always had an inherent liking of motorcycles, and my friend asked me to make something special for his birthday … It took around three months, and progress was relatively fast. But as a student, I could only work on it two to three hours a day.”
Recently, 21311 Voltron launched as the largest set to have originated as part of the fan inspired theme.
