Our Latest: 1992 BMW R100R
Author: Ellaspede Date Posted:26 February 2020
When owner Sam came to us with his plans for a custom build we knew this BMW R100R was going to be something pretty special. A slight departure from our usual style of BMW customs, Sam’s end goal had us excited to bring a little ‘Euro’ style to the build.
What do we mean by ‘Euro’ style? We’ve seen a growing trend of BMW R-series customisation in Europe that hasn’t really taken off in Australia yet. The core features are floating single seat, chunky tyres, small guards, lots of black, offset lights and super clean lines. Sure we’ve ticked off a few of these individual items on recent builds, but Sam was the first client to come to us with a vision that we thought was ticking all the boxes for this style.
How did it come about? Sam told us… “Most modern road bikes have never really appealed to me which is why I have always wanted something custom. I think the BMW R-series bikes make some of the nicest customs and I particularly like the shape of the boxer engine. I think the semi-scrambler style appeals to me from growing up on dirt bikes too.”
