Auto Fabrica SR500

British custom builders Auto Fabrica have really achieved perfection in its simplicity with their new build, a Yamaha SR500 conversion. This sleek and clean 60s scrambler-influenced ride has a custom bodywork handmade from aluminum, and features some stunning details such as the remarkable exhaust, finished in a silver ceramic coating for added heat protection, and with an exposed aluminum surface on the tank, which doubles up as a knee guard for the exhaust. It also features a custom made seat finished in a tough reversed leather, new shocks, a reworked frame with all unnecessary parts removed or relocated out of sight, tiny LED taillight and small LED indicators front and back, custom leather grips, and 18inch wheels fitted with chunky Maxxis tyres. The end result is a design-forward scrambler ready to tackle any dirt track.

BMW R80 | BY DIAMOND ATELIER

Our latest custom motorbike workshop discovery comes from Munich, Germany. Diamond Atelier was founded this summer by Tom Konecny and Pablo Steigleder, two cafe racer enthusiasts that wanted more than what is offered by the existing monotonous and repetitive custom scene. Their first build is this beautiful 1992 BMW R80RT conversion, a bike striped to its bare essentials, cleaned up, painted with a beautiful pale blue color scheme, and converted into a true masterpi...
