Earth Moto Gives BMW’s R100RT Moto An Insanely-Clean & Minimalistic Redux

Though BMW’s R100RT looks pretty awkward and dated by today’s standards, underneath its frame-fixed full fairing and suite of luggage lies a genuinely capable donor model, with a bulletproof-reliable, German-engineered air-cooled 60hp 980cc OHV boxer and a simple yet accommodating mono-shocked double-cradle steel frame. And Slovakian custom bike outfit, Earth Motorcycles has brilliantly demonstrated this with its stunningly clean 1993 R100RT project dubbed the “Hailer.”

The build started with a complete teardown before the frame was de-tabbed, rid of its subframe, paired with an upgraded YSS shock and a shortened fork, and powder-coated top to bottom. The engine was given a very thorough overhaul with all new internals, K&N filters, and a case that’s been bead-blasted and Cerakoted in black. The tank’s been stripped of its Roundels, fitted with a Monza-style cap, and professionally coated using a 2K paint technology, and a bobber-type seat now rests in a sliver of a subframe. Custom fenders fore and aft, further tidy up this already immaculate build while a set of underslung exhausts culminating in slash-cut mufflers with carbon fiber end-caps adds a bit of modern flair to the equation, as does its straight set of bars which now sport Rizoma canisters, Motogadget bar-end LEDs, bar-end mirrors, and grips, upgraded adjustable levers, and GP-style switchgear. This ultra-clean zero-mile BMW R100RT build is currently for sale through The BikeShed’s classified pages with a $23,275 asking price.
