This 1981 BMW R100T is the result of seven months of work, built in true “rustic” style, with limited tools and budget, we can say that this bike is really a success. Wez has matured a lot as builder, moving deftly between the gears and the wiring of Bavaria. Fundamental the support his friend, who have always supported him with very motivational phrases, like .. "Dude, haven't you finished yet ?!" The bike came in the workshop with many extras included, as the tank cover in leather. Pieces of the hull and other unnecessary heavy parts were immediately removed, leaving more room for the personal interpretation of this South African artist. He started from the engine which was refurbished from top to bottom. The subframe is 150mm shorter and mounts a PVC printed saddle with a vinyl cover embroidered. The Hagon shock absorbers have been boosted, the low, wide handlebars give the bike a touch of elegance and also the mirrors, mounted at its ends, do not interfere with the view and bind perfectly with the design of the Bavarian. The license plate is made with meticulous precision and in folded aluminum, finished with black anodizing. The exhausts were not replaced but modified to keep a good sound and remain aligned to the rear hoop. A small and simple speedometer with small lights, provides just enough information without being distracting for the driver. Its built has had its ups and downs and has caused many problems to the poor Wez, but he managed to pull off a beautiful custom, full of grit. A great job for the South African “Customizer” to whom we wish good luck and hope that he will choose another flashy BMW for his next job.
