Este é um tópico que está em grande expansão com exemplos a proliferarem pela net quase todos os dias.

Acho que aqui o fórum também deveria ter um espaço para mostrar os bons e inspiradores exemplos que se fazem pelo mundo fora.

E para começar que tal algo Português???

1980 R80RT - DARK LAW


Imagem

We want to bring back the spirit of motorcycles from a few years ago and the design that made that era so special. This BMW R80RT allowed us to build our first motorcycle. It started life as a Spanish police bike from the 1980s—hence the name “Dark Law".

The bike was in good condition and the engine was strong, but the machine was saddled with the big fairings and panniers favored by Spanish law enforcement. After stripping the bike back to its core, we cleaned up the frame with fresh paint and shortened it at the back to accommodate the custom single seat unit, upholstered in brown and dark silver leather. It was then lowered and we've fitted a single rear shock from a Yamaha R1. Rear sets, handlebar mirrors, speedo, small headlight, tailight, vintage tires and Ton-up Garage custom exhausts.

BMW R75/6
Project: PANZER

This project started, because our client wanted a seat for his BMW R75/6. Soon it became a complete and very ambitious project. Our client already had a engine and a few other parts rebuilt, but it missed the global concept of the bike, so we decide to accept the challenge, and re-think it all over.

The name is Panzer!

1976 R75/6 PANZER


Imagem

You don’t see many vintage BMWs with red frames. But to my eyes, this R75/6 strangely works. The project comes from Portugal’s Maria Riding Company, and started with an order for a seat.
“Our client also had a rebuilt engine and a few other parts,” reports Luis Correia of Maria. “But there was no overall concept for the bike. So we decided to re-think it all over.”

It was Maria’s first BMW R-series build, and Correia had reservations. “In the beginning we were a little bit skeptical—a R75/6 from 1976 has a few technical limitations.”
Maria decided to build a bike that felt smaller and sat lower than the original, with the wheels dominating the overall look more. “Not the thin and shy wheels that came with it originally!”

New aluminum rims and Firestone AMS tires were fitted, with the wider back wheel adjusted to the left to clear the shaft drive. Correia and his crew then welded on a new subframe with a large tube diameter—to increase strength and create a more uniform and robust look. “It was interesting to mix the classic look with something more aggressive,” he says.

The front suspension was rebuilt and shortened a little, with stubby Bitubo shocks dropping the rear end to match. The tank was reprofiled to suit the lower stance, the battery was hidden, and the airbox was modified to clean up the gap behind the engine. Simple controls and instruments add to the clean look.

And that frame ..? “The red was risky,” Correia admits. “But the final result turned out great with the black and steel finishes. People who know our work know that we love to take risks with color.”

R80 INDIRA


Imagem

Indira reflects pure beauty and we wanted to build a BMW motorcycle with a new identity design but that was able to kept purity in the lines and shapes.

Technically we’ve made changes in the rear shock, building new fixations and fitting another rear shock, front suspension was also lowered. A new fuel tank was used to lower the lines of the motorcycle. Sub-frame was shortened and a new seat was designed and built to accommodate comfortably the rider. Smaller headlight, taillight and indicators, speedo, handlebar switches to clean the aesthetics of the handlebar. Fitted air filters, new handlebar, handlebar grips and levers. We’ve used Firestone Deluxe tires, built rear mudguard, subframe, battery box and several different mountings for many parts. We’ve built new exhaust pipes and fitted exhaust wraps. Painted the engine, wheels, frame and rear mudguard in black. Fuel tank was painted in a mix of bright and matt black and some brown lines to go with the seat.

When you’re a Frenchman who desires a German BMW to carve through the streets of London England then who better to turn to than Portugal’s Ton-Up Garage. This cross-continental custom BMW R80 is both a testament to its builders and the great state in which the custom motorcycle scene finds itself. Borders disappear, there are no limits other than your imagination and the skill of your builder; the language of cool customs is universal. Ton-Up’s Daniel and Pedro have proven themselves master builders and their BMW’s are some of the best in the world.

Whereas the most recent BMW to roll out of Ton-Up, Recall, maintained many of the styling cues and authenticity of a classic Bavarian, Indira as she is known is built to meet the customer’s request of a dark in colour, low to the ground and built for daily commuting. With suggestions based on past experience Daniel and Pedro were able to convince the customer that too much black would take away from the lines and with all in agreement the final design was completed. Suspension alone won’t give a low sleek look and so the BMW fuel tank was ditched in favour of a parts bin item that would give a more flowing appearance. Finished in a mixture of gloss black and matte black paint work with metallic brown detailing it sets the theme for the entire build.

To bring the BMW closer to terra firma the front suspension was rebuilt and lowered using shorter springs that still retain a level of comfort. While the single side-mounted shock is both stunning in appearance and function, but required a reworking of the fixing points to work perfectly. The factory lower shaft drive mounted position remains while the top of the shock swings on a custom bracket mated to tabs welded directly the strongest parts of the frame. All of this was vital as this bike is no show pony; it’s expected to crisscross the mean streets of London on a daily basis.

Aiding in rider comfort is one of Ton-Ups one off seats that have become a trademark of the workshop. Two tones of sumptuous brown leather are stitched with craftsman like precision and the Garage’s logo is stamped into the tail piece. The foam itself is shaped in such a way to both neatly fit the customer and also maintain the desired flowing lines. But you can’t just fit a seat like this to a standard frame, so the rear section first had to be entirely removed. A new subframe was built just for this bike and seat combo and once welded to the main frame the entire lot was sprayed in a subtle black chip-resistant coating.

Clip-ons for a low bike would have been the easy option, but the swept back bars fitted to Indira give a Brough Superior like elegance while also creating a more comfortable riding position. New levers, grips and twin button switch blocks clean up the front end. While a small headlight, single speedo gauge and even the gators add to the minimalist look and feel of the build. With being street legal a must, small bullet indicators in black feature at both ends of the BMW while a vintage style tail light is mounted to a new rear fender finished in the same gloss black that adorns the tank.

Then there are the final details, decisions that expert builders with an eye for detail make and pull the whole project in a single, uniform direction. First are the fitment of vintage Firestone Deluxe tyres whose vertical lines match beautifully to the BMW’s air-cooled fins when you view the bike front on. Finally there are those pipes, custom created headers that snake their way through the frame, neatly dressed in brown heat wrap and finishing with two snarling black reverse cone mufflers.

And therein lies the success of Portugal’s own Ton-Up Garage, an ability to take a design brief for a daily ridden low slung BMW and turn it into a show worthy custom machine that collects gazes on the streets and trophies at the show!

1979 R100RS - FUEL R100 TRACKER HP


Imagem

Based on a BMW R100 RS from 1979 the Fuel R100 Tracker HP ( High Performance) was commissioned by Dave from England.
Dave joined us for last year’s Scram Africa, but his bike broke down. So when the trip ended, he gave it to us to fix and transform.
We worked on several designs, and Dave finally chose one with a dirt track influence. The concept had a compact tank, a solo seat, and a high exhaust pipe. And it was to be as simple and light as possible.
By the other hand we wanted to improve the performances of the bike. We started changing the front fork for a BMW K75 one, the whole brake system ( a bigger disc and four caliper brakes), a MIkuni carbs , K&N air filters, a rear Ohlins suspension, fast throttle grip, etc..
A particularly neat detail is the ignition system: there’s a key unit on the left side of the bike, but it starts with a button next to the speedometer.
The bike has a lot of new parts designed by us and machined by a specialist..speedometer holder, bracket indicators, front and rear fender brass fixing screws, etc..and other handmade parts as the battery box, the rear frame, the tubular structure under the seat, high exhaust pipes, aluminium number side panels, number plate holder , etc..so we really use a few aftermarket parts.
This bike represents a step forward in our learning, it was a challenge that we achieved thanks to 5 months of hard work and the talent of many people as our engineer Alfons.

Karles Vives builds motorcycles with a purpose. When he’s not beavering away in his Barcelona workshop, he’s organizing Scram Africa, an exhilarating blast through the desert for owners of classic and custom bikes.
Karles’ own BMW builds are designed to handle the rough stuff, but this one is a little different. It’s a tracker rather than a scrambler, and was commissioned by a client from England.

“Dave joined us for last year’s Scram Africa,” Karles explains, “but his bike broke down. So when the trip ended, he gave it to us to fix—and transform.”
The Fuel Motorcycles crew worked on several designs, and Dave finally chose one with a dirt track influence. The concept had a compact tank, a solo seat, and a high exhaust pipe. And it was to be as simple and light as possible.

The broken-down donor started life as a 1979 BMW R100 RS—a 70 hp ‘super sport’ with a lightweight fairing and a 200 km/h top speed. It had an excellent reputation in its day, but that didn’t stop Karles from increasing its abilities still further.

He’s installed the forks and brake system from a BMW K75, Öhlins shocks, Mikuni carbs, K&N air filters, and a Fondseca quick-action throttle. The handlebars are from LSL—fitted with Oury grips—and a Motogadget Motoscope Tiny analog speedo sits behind the Bates headlight.

There’s a lot of custom fabrication too, from multiple brackets to the battery box and the rear frame. The classic high exhaust pipes are hand-made, as are the aluminum side panels.
A particularly neat detail is the ignition system: there’s a key unit on the left side of the bike, but it starts with a button next to the speedometer.

Karles and his engineer Alfons already have a sterling reputation for quality builds, but they’ve stretched themselves with this tracker. “It was a step forward in our learning—and a challenge.”

After five months of hard work, they’ve produced a machine to be proud of. BMW purists may scoff, but I reckon this BMW looks even better than the original.

Luis Moto Pisa, Italy

2014 RnineT - BMW R NINET SCRAMBLER, ITALIAN STYLE


Imagem

If rumors of BMW’s new R nineT-based scrambler have you foaming at the mouth, but you’re the impatient type—Luis Bertelli has the answer.
He’s reworked the R nineT into a modern replica of the quintessential BMW scrambler, the R80G/S Paris Dakar. And he’s done it in spectacular fashion; if we were sitting in Munich right now, we’d be taking notes.

Luis operates as Luis Moto out of Pisa, Italy, where he customizes bikes and sells custom parts. So everything you see here is (or will soon be) available on his online store. That’s good news if you’ve got an R nineT in the garage—and a soft spot for old dirt-biased boxers.

G/S aficionados will immediately spot the R nineT’s more obvious Paris Dakar-inspired cues: like the red seat, black knee indents and tank graphics. (Which, by the way, have been painted rather than stuck on.)

But Luis’ mods go beyond just a few splashes of color. There’s a neat grill covering the stock headlight—which is mounted on a bracket designed to dampen vibration. And there’s a carbon fiber number board that acts as a shroud to conceal the slightly bulky clocks.

The aluminum front fender and brace are new too, and will be available unpainted or polished. And out back, Luis has constructed a rear fender that runs over the stock frame. It’s been designed to give the tail a shorter feel without the need to cut or weld anything. Mounted on it is Lucas-style tail light with a license plate bracket.

The seat’s covered in a leather that’s been dyed at the tannery itself, to be as close to the original G/S red as possible. (Luis also plans to produce it in brown and black.) Rounding off the back half of the bike are a pair of aluminum side panels, which will be reproduced in carbon fiber for public consumption.

Aside from a new paint job, the R nineT fuel tank has been left alone. Luis removed the stock airbox snorkel from the right side though—citing weight, aesthetics and performance as his reasons. In its place is a slim carbon fiber plate, painted white to match the tank.

Running up the left hand side of the bike is a full stainless steel, two-into-one exhaust system. It exits high, but runs inside the frame at the back to avoid creating extra bulk. Luis says he’ll be offering it as a fully customizable system, with multiple finishes and configurations to choose from—including an optional dB killer.

To get the final color scheme just right, Luis had a bunch of smaller parts redone in wrinkle black, including the headlight, triple clamps, fork lowers and instrument trim.

Finishing off the build kit are a set of dirt-bike handlebars, adjustable billet aluminum levers, and a pair of Metzeler Karoo tires.

If BMW’s new scrambler looks half as good as this, we’re in for a treat.
