The Fuel Motorcycles' boys from Barcelona are known as builders or better as customizers of extreme off-road motorcycles. Bikes particularly suited to run for hundreds of kilometers on the Sahara dunes ... so this original Cafe Racer built by them it's a real novelty.Jorge, owner of this 1986 monolevel BMW R65, lives a short walk from Fuel Motorcycles headquarters in Barcelona and knowing the team's passion for details, has engaged Karles Vives ( Fuel's owner) to create his concept of Racer, leaving the broader artistic freedom, but taking into account that the bike has to accompany him in his daily city driving in suit and tie and not on the dirt or sand.As it often happens on these big boxer engines, age does not mean rebuilding the engine, but simply change some gasket and correct some details. In this case, the 650cc engine required a simple maintenance and the replacement of the airbox with cornet filters. The original tank was replaced with that of a 750 SFC Laverda and the subframe reconstructed to give it a solid and clean line. The color (which unfortunately we do not see) has been influenced by "Eleanor", the 1967 Shelby GT 500 star of the film “Gone in sixty seconds” with Nicolas Cage.Particular the "bubble" protection on the headlight taken from a Biltwell visor and integrated to the BMW speedometer. The backward footpegs allow a race position, while the tail remindes of the legendary '70s Café Racers . Very beautiful the exhaust terminals, positioned on the left side and overlapping. The original wheels have been black powder-coated and mount performing Heidenau K65 tires.What to say about this cafe racer Fuel? ... Simply that Fuel Motorcycles' boys do not build off-road bikes.... but bikes...and they always do it extremely well!Fuel Bespoke MotorcyclesWebsite Facebook
