Whitcraft Services BMWGS

Whitcraft Services is a new custom motorbike shop in Brooklyn, New York. Their latest masterpiece is this BMW R1150GS, a custom adventure bike that is highly minimal, lightweight and classically styled. The team designed the electrical system from the ground up, and added a Truck-lite LED headlight, a BAAK Cycles LED tail light, new suspension with custom spring rates and adjustable preload, a slim profile custom 5-gallon fuel tank, a seat covered in a heavy saddle leather with a diamond stitch pattern, and a lightweight luggage rack and recycled military waxed cotton luggage bag from Unit Garage was also added. The wheels were also rebuilt with stainless spokes, new bearings, hubs and rims powder coated and wrapped with Avon Trailrider tires. This beauty is currently available for purchase, visit Whitcraft Services to register your interest or order your own.
