Was inspired by those who inspire from bikes. However, the BMX inspired by the bikes. But here it goes the other way around. During, the late '70s and the early '80s was the year of the BMX. Likewise, R80 BMW gets the inspiration from there. The Skyway Board race has the kickoff art any custom build deserve. The internal throttle and clutch keep the clean design as it should be.
Eric Groenewald said:
"Because I wanted clean bars I had to come up with a braking system that would run the front and rear simultaneously from the rear brake only. Myself and Matt from MS Engineering came up with a system that turned downward pressure into a rear force which had to drive the billet master cylinders and create confident enough braking and to have the aesthetics I was looking for. The segmented performance exhaust I designed was made by Reynard Schonken of Scorch Bezerker. I wanted the collector to flow with the frame and rest of the boxy engine but to also look like the fire breathing exhaust tips of a Spitfire fighter plane. Each piece was CNC’d out of a solid block of aluminium."
What caught our eyes is the leather seat. Every stitch the go over the tank as a cover serve the feeling of that handmade vintage the shows only but luxury from the past. The hexagonal stitching by Eric Groenewald did a fantastic artwork with that design. Combined with the dark blue colors, the red with the finished white is perfectly presented with the BMW logo beneath.
In conclusion, It's not just a pleasure to the eyes. The enjoyment of the road with the best custom made that can be. You can see they put hours of work on that piece of machinery.
