1982 BMW R100RT – M1/7 Black from Analog Motorcycles
For a full gallery and list of components and modifications of this build, we encourage you to swing by our build page for the bike.
Originally contacted by a client for a build based on the XS650 platform (after seeing the Analog Agnessa build), the client was put on our schedule to get started on a project. We sorted out some initial details and on the list he went. While waiting for the build to begin, the client contacted us a bit later to inform us that he would rather have an old airhead in the stable. No problem.
Just as the build was about to commence, our client purchased a new BMW M3 and fell absolutely in love with his car. Inspired by just how much our client appreciated his new four-wheeled transport, the design brief was adjusted to complement his new Competition Series M3 (painted in an awesome Black Sapphire Metallic color). His build demands were fairly open, only three requirements: the bike had to be 2-up, similar to his car, and classy. Since we’re quite familiar with building 2-up customs, we were more than happy to accommodate. What’s better than enjoying a motorcycle built to your personal taste? Sharing that experience with a passenger.
The project ended up being a strong mix of custom fabrication built to customer specifications and use of Analog Motor Goods components. Here’s a list of the parts used on this build, should any of it be of interest to you and your current projects:
- Analog Motor Goods Univeral Retro Lighting Kit
