It's hard to find a motorcycles builder, an artist, a technician, a nonprofit organization ... all in one single person. That's the case of Fabian's Zadig Motorcycles in Belgium. This organization makes very special custom bikes which are then sold at auctions and whose profits help children suffering from serious illnesses.This 1976 BMW R60/6 is one of Zadig Motorcycles' latest creations. The engine has been completely revised and, while leaving the airbox structure, new cone filter have been installed. The exhaust manifolds have been modified, bringing them closer to the engine, and wrapped with heat tape, the old terminals replaced with two stainless steel ones, considerably shorter. The subframe has been modified to adapt a short handmade leather mono saddle that perfectly matches the beautiful leather Brooks knobs.The front shock absorbers have been rebuilt while the original rear ones have been revised. The spoked wheels have been painted in black, while particular is the choice of different tires: Classic Firestone on the front and notched Mitas on the rear. The electrical system, rebuilt and simplified, now has a tiny LiPo battery.The black and steel look prevails, with the only exception of the brown saddle and grips. The small LED Halo headlight and the bar dumbbell complete the "minimalist" look of this motorcycle.The final result may be appreciated or not, depending on your taste, but the non-profit activities of Zadig Motorcycles in raising funds for sick children is extremely praiseworthy.Photo David MarvierísWebsite Facebook
