GRUN-WEIß THE R100 SWISS ARMY KNIFE
BMW 1892 R100T
RW: I am thinking about retiring in the next few years, as well as doing motorcycle tours around the world. I want to have a bike I can tour through new england and the surrounding area.
I don't want a new bike. I don't want an old bike. I want something built for me.
I like cafe racers, but I also like to have luggage. How can I do that?? Detail in a build is very important to me. That bolt, that bracket, that seat, and that look and feel has to be perfect.
BM: We can do that! Any other requirements?
RW: Yes, I am short.
BM: Okay! We will build you a vintage BMW with modern brakes, more horsepower, a custom frame, gas tank, and seat to fit your needs.
We started with a 1982 R100T and did the following:
-Narrowed the main motorcycle frame.
-Built a custom rear frame, narrowed it as well.
-Took the stock gas tank and narrowed it and added a /5 flip style gas cap.
-With two custom seats. One for touring and one for pushing the ton, both allowing quick release saddle bag mounts for Wolfman enduro bags there is enough room for a change of clothes, couple bottles of wine, and a few nice cigars. A motorcycle built for a great weekend get away!
More photos coming soon!
In the meantime you can check this build out on Pipeburn!
Here is a list of many of the parts we supplied for this build.
The bike also has quick release saddlebag mounts and Wolfman Luggage.
