BMW R100TrackeR

The donor machine is the very last carburated bike ever produced by BMW: the R100 R Mystic. This one if from 1994 and was retrieved with only 3000 kms.
We made it lighter by 30 kilos.

We turned it into a more fun and easy to handle machine.

This machine is a perfect one for both commuting and road-tripping.

bmw GSTracker

When we retrieved this "BMW R80 GS" from 1981, it was a complete mess.
It was not working but worst of all: there was some rust even inside the genuine carburetors.

The owner wanted a "tribute to dirt track" motorcycle.

Given what we saw in his eyes when he discovered the finished bike, we assume we met his expectations.

Dead Ace

Here comes a vintage BMW "R75/6" from 1975.

The owner is one of the most "chic" gentleman we have ever met.

It was therefore natural that for this very unique time, we decided to go for a paint job on a vintage "Honda" tank.

And if we were to re-do it, we'd go for it 100%.

Blue S

We are talking here about a 1976 legendary BMW "R90 S" with wonderful Dell Orto carburetors and dedicated camshaft... Still for an unknown reason, coming with mag wheels and not rim wheels this time.

The owner wanted to go for a street tracker inspiration which he could use for both commuting and road tripping.
Convincing him to go for a vintage non OEM tank with no paint job was not that hard.

And even if he had not been convinced, we'd still have sticked to this AD.

FRENCH BOBBER

The owner of this machine came and see us to convert his BMW R60/2 into whatever we would want to...
His only request was to have an electric starter.

We agreed on installing a 800cc boxer engine into this frame.
But we changed the whole ignition system by a TCI/CDI one. Just for the fun of it...

We called it "French Bobber" because what could be more French than a German/English unexpected marriage?

LITTLE GREEN BAG

The donor bike here is a Kawasaki W650 from 2001.

We were commissioned by a girl for this project.

She passed her driving test especially for this machine.

We wanted to go for something smooth, low and still fun to ride.

From the feedback we get from her, it seems the goal has been reached.

La Parisienne

The donor bike here is a BMW R100 RT01 from 1984.

We were commissioned by the French Insurance Company La Parisienne.

We wanted to go for something brutal, radical and never seen before with a BMW basis.

We hope we reached this goal.

STREET DRACKER

This Suzuki DR 650 has been the property of its current owner for the last 10 years.
He had not used it for the last 5 years, though.

He came to us to see if we could not turn his old lady in something more... brutal and unique.

We are really proud to say he immediately fell in love with his new toy for big boy.
Totally reconditioned of course.

BMW GSky

The owner of the R75/6 wanted a bike he could use a bit "off road".

One of the best vintage off road bike, to us, is the Husqvarna CR 240.
The funny thing here is that when we started this project, Husqvarna was still the property of BMW Motorrad.

We tried to imagine the love child they would have had.

TW ZERO

Even though this TW was finished very recently, we named it "Zero".

Because this bike is in fact the very first TW we ever worked on. 5 years ago.

Since then, we increased our knowledge and we naturally offered its owner an upgrade, which we judged necessary.

We can be nice sometimes, can't we?
