A new BMW R80 scrambler is the custom bike that Lord Drake Kustoms has transformed in his cafe racer workshop in Spain and that we present in this post.
The customization of a cafe racer motorcycle should always start with the choice of a good motorcycle to transform; and in this case this BMW R80 was ideal, because it was in excellent condition.
The first thing that was done was to completely disassemble this R80 and order the cafe racer parts and accessories that we were going to need at the custom accessories store “Customize your motorcycle”.
Next, we began to manufacture the subframe and cafe racer seat for BMW in an artisanal way. We modified the front suspension, trimmed the front fender, and installed a new Biltwell tracker handlebar.
The wheels, fork bottles and other parts were sent to powdercoating Metal Colors company for painting with a gloss black electrostatic powder paint.
A new YSS monoshock for the BMW R8, a 7-inch cafe racer headlight, an auxiliary headlamp with a yellow lens, Biltwell mirrors, Motogadget M-Blaze turn signals on the grips and the Motogadget Tiny odometer, were some of the components that shape this motorcycle customized.
Cafe racer exhaust tails and carburettors with KN air filters are other pieces to highlight. The seat has been upholstered in brown and the gloss black fuel tank accompanied by a monza-style fuel capfor BMW gives this bike a very elegant look.
The final touch to give this completely transformed bike a BMW scrambler look are the Continetal TKC80 motorcycle scrambler tires.
The result is a BMW R80 more scrambler than cafe racer, customized in a motorcycle transformation workshop in Malaga (Spain) where the most important thing is the soul of the motorcycles and the satisfaction of the customers.
