Federal Moto BMW R100

Our custom motorbike crush today comes from a small garage in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, called Federal Moto. This sharp build ticks all the right boxes, a sleek trimmed-down Cafe Racer that pays tribute to the past. Named "The Five”, the BMW R100 has been stripped to its essentials and fitted with a front fender, mini handlebar switches, leather grips, a airbox hole cover, a headlight capped off with a mesh guard, and a dual-shock setup under the custom leather seat. The seat features an embedded LED with the tail light and turn signals. The motor was also entirely rebuilt and treated with a pair of Mikuni VM34 carbs. Beauty.
