Hookie 1979 BMW R100

Dresden-based motorcycle shop Hookie Co have rolled out this gorgeous transformation of a 1979 BMW R100. Named "Racoon", this classic BMW boxer was built with reliability and day-to-day performance, and dressed in Hookie´s typically minimalist style. The build had the engine fully rebuilt and repainted it in a dark grey metallic color, and it was fitted with an upgraded air filter, a Brembo master cylinder, a dark brown leather saddle, a custom-built a luggage rack and handmade saddlebag from Wheelborne, a powerful Koso LED headlight mounted on LSL brackets, a hand-built bracket to hold the license plate and rear turn signals, hand-rolled aluminum fenders at both front and rear, YSS shocks out back, and Continental TKC80 tires for all-round use. Everything is wrapped in a subtle monochrome paint job.
