15 km east from the giant BMW factory in Berlin, there is the Urban Motor, a small workshop, now known around the world, which builds very elegant custom bikes, often using, as donors, big BMW air cooled boxers. The latest achievement is a beautiful custom based on a R80 of 1987 commissioned by an architect for his fortieth birthday, the "Clean Beem (er)".Keeping the Series 7 tank, the rear subframe has been rebuilt to host a short leather saddle with metal tail. The suspensions have been modified with Wilbers springs progressive forks, on the front, and a mono Wilbers Ecoline on the back. The spoked rims are now fitted with Roadrider Avon AM26 tires , 18" on the front and 17" on the rear, ensuring the maximum grip on the asphalt.The airbox has been replaced by K&N cone filters, giving the engine area a much more "naked" look. Motogadget Electronics reduced to the minimum with a micro switch and one Chronoclassic speedo, LSL handlebars and Magura grips. Exhaust manifolds wrapped with heat tape, short terminals pipe painted in black and a side license plate bracket complete this beautiful custom.Very unique and elegant the choice of two-tone light green and white paint, which recalls the lines of the tank, the rear tail and the small front fender.Well, as a present for his 40th birthday ... not bad at all!Photo Tim Adler Photography.Website Facebook
