Boxer Garage is a small workshop specialized in making Special using the legendary Boxer engine, born in Caserta from an idea of Alfredo Forni, Accountant with a passion for BMW bikes, and Pino, a retired mechanic.The goal of these two friends in building this special, was to make one myth of the '80s, the unforgettable BMW R80 G/S Paris Dakar, live again on a low price BMW donor and with a moderate budget. The R1100 GS suited their purpose, being a great bike, modern and unstoppable but still, in many ways, similar to the first GS.Once selected, Alfredo and Pino bought a "low mileage" (60,000 km) R1100 GS 1996. The transformation took place more by subtraction than by addition. Many of the original parts have been removed, as the huge tinted windshield and big squared headlight, a feature of the 1100's that has always found some criticism among the fans.The long beak, which begin from the oil cooler, has been kept, but placed a little bit higher and closer to the forks, becoming a real enduro fender and giving the bike a more off-road look. Note that the oil cooler has remained in its place, now hidden by the fender itself. The original headlight has been replaced by the round headlight of a BMW R 1100R, while the dome is the original, but reshaped by hand and repainted.The removed front wheel fender and the Metzeler Karoo 3 tires reinforce the off-road concept. The instrumentation has been removed and placed, in its essential elements (lights, speedometer and tachometer) directly on the handlebar. Then, to protect the cylinders, a steel roll-bar has been mounted.Its original yellow Kalahari color, used for the tank and front and rear fenders, has been replaced by a always original color of 1100, the White Alpinweiss 146, while the stickers were designed and built by the team Boxer Garage starting from those of the BMW R80 G / S PARIS DAKAR of the 80s. The back has remained the same, but a Kappa frame has been mounted for the aluminum cases.The transformation in Paris Dakar Special, can be made from Boxer Garage, on any BMW GS series, with costs starting from € 2,500 depending on the level of customization.
