This BMW Scrambler Was Inspired By A 6-Day All-Terrain Enduro Race

First held at Carlisle, England in 1913, the International Six Days Trial (ISDT) was an event intended not only to test a rider’s grit but also his motorcycle’s mechanical integrity. Throughout its running, the ISDT saw some of the world’s toughest terrain, with countries from all across the globe sending their best contestants to prove their metal.

In an effort to build a bike that would honor the spirit of the event, Estonian-based Renard Speed Shop has transformed a 1979 BMW R80/7 into the scrambler you see before you. Up front, it’s been fitted with a long travel fork and a 21″ wheel from a CZ motocross model. When paired the stiffer shock and extended swingarm at the rear, it makes for an airhead with plenty of trail-riding potential. Around the rest of the bike, you’ll find a flurry of custom fabbed details, including some two-into-one stainless steel exhaust, a new low-profile seatpan, as well as some handmade aluminum number plates. Add to that a pair of high-rise scrambler bars fitted with a modern Motogadget speedo and some Renard-special switchgear, and you have a build that perfectly captures the old-school off-road aesthetic.
