BMW R100S Black Baron

Our latest custom motorbike crush is this beastly beamer by Denmark’s Relic Motorcycles. The donor bike started as a BMW R100S (it was actually an old police bike) from the 80s, and was striped to its essentials. The old rear section of the frame was removed, and the centre rear section of the frame was extended in order to mount a Biltwell Harley solo seat on, that features twin rows of LED brakelights underneath. It was also fitted with twin Hagon 420mm shocks, with chunky Continental Twinduro tires, killer twin cutaway exhausts, some custom bent handlebars, and the standout feature - a black matte carbon tank. The end result was appropriately named "Black Baron” and is one hell on an impressive build.
