This Green And Gold BMW Bobber Moto Blends Antique Style With Modern Tech

With the unique appearance of the air-cooled engine with its protruding cylinder heads, vintage BMW airheads have become increasingly popular platforms for customization in recent years — a phenomenon helped along by the bulletproof, German-engineered reliability of the bikes. So, when Unik Edition needed a donor for its next project, the Portuguese custom moto outfit turned to the Bavarian boxer.

The original subframe has been replaced with a perched solo-tube unit and bespoke tabs linking the swing-arm to a pair of new 390mm Hagon shocks. The front-end was lowered ever-so-slightly, before being fitted with a dual-disc Brembo stopper arrangement and a larger 19” wheel. Motogadget provided electronics, top-shelf switchgear, and micro-LED and bar-end indicators. The bespoke boxer now breathes through of a pair of K&N pod filters, and spit burnt fumes through a full custom exhaust system, exiting just beneath the swing-arm pivot. Other upgrades include new rear-sets, LSL bars, brass instrument housing, a quilted tractor-style saddle and the fuel-cell off of a Yamaha Virago — another immensely-popular bobber donor. Dubbed “Hulk,” the project’s finishing touch is a custom livery made up of a sparkle metallic, two-tone green tank with gold pinstriping, bespoke gold Roundels, and a matching gold powder-coated frame and wheels.
