Here's another Kevils we like! For those who are distracted, the Kevils Speed Shop in Devon UK, is perhaps the largest builder of BMW custom in the world. Using old air-cooled Boxers as donors, these wonderful bikes, in addition to the retro charm and restyling, have another peculiarity: they are meticulous in detail, from the engine to the most insignificant bolt, so as to leave the workshop in Devon practically brand new.Kev's latest creation is this 1984 BMW R80, clearly a cafe racer style bike with a very particular color: Frozen blue matt metallic, the same that BMW uses for M3 car series Limited Edition, hence the name Sapphire.Like all Kevils Speed Shop's bikes, all mechanical and electrical parts have been carefully reviewed. A new handlebar has been mounted, a 2 into 1 low level exhaust system, rims painted black and Avon Distanzia tires, digital speedo touch screen above the Halo LED headlight. Finally the old carburetors have been replaced with more performing Mikuni's, and Raask footpegs for a more sporty appearance.Particular the paint: from the pearl gray of the frame to matt blue, gray and black that match very well, and the beautiful café racer tail mounted by an handmade diamond-stitched black leather saddle.This beauty will have its official debut at the NEC Motorcycle Live in Birmingham, England, from the 22nd to the 30th of November at the BMW Motorrad stand. But also expect to see it on the big screen because it has already been hired for the film "Now You See Me II" with Daniel Radcliffe, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, set in Surrey (New York).
