Usually, the BMW K75S is not a "Fashion" nor a "Cool" bike... too often - wrongly - ignored by customizers, it has fantastic potential instead.What happens when a series K arrives into the hands of a German workshop specialized in building beautiful customs with a particular predilection for large air cooled R series boxer engine? ... Easy, it is transformed into a beautiful Kafé Racer!We are talking about Hammer Kraftrad in Triefenstein, Germany, that we've got to appreciate with their BMW R100 Hammer, beautiful Café Racer with its clean and retro lines.This 1992 BMW K75S came in Michael's, of Hammer Kraftrad, workshop through a guy named Christian.Christian is a close friend of Michael's cousin, she is tattooer and he owns a BMW motorcycle store ... meeting Michael was inevitable. Christian had, in his store, this K75S with few kilometers and in perfect mechanical condition. The opportunity was too interesting for Michael, not to accept the challenge of converting an old and dowdy K in a butterfly Kafé Racer.The "flying brick", so Michael called the K during the process of building it, has been completely disassembled and overhauled. To consider, that all Hammer Kraftrad bikes are certified by the german TUV, so they must pass high safety standards.Michael has removed the original fairing, replacing it with a new beautiful two-tone Ducati/Imola style one, silver at the top and black at the bottom. He modified the rear subframe to include an handmade aluminum frame with tail, incorporating a beautiful short leather saddle in perfect Cafe Racer's style. Half racing handlebars and a beautiful aluminum front fender complete the look.Now the bike can be admired in Christian's BMW store waiting for a new enthusiastic owner.Here's how one can turn an old K "flying brick" into a beautiful Kafé Racer.Hammer KraftradWebsite Facebook
