La Motocicletta’s ’83 BMW R80ST Is A Beautifully-Balanced Minimalist Moto

Aftermarket BMW builds have become a bit commonplace for motorcycle connoisseurs nowadays, but that doesn’t mean that all of them are copy/paste replicas. The 1983 BMW R80ST you see here, for example, is a breath of fresh air that breaks free of the conventions most modified BMWs face, while still remaining relatively devoted to the bike’s iconic stature.

Built by La Motocicletta and housed in the Province of Pordenone, Italy, this glorious bike was birthed under one of motorcycling’s finest custom shops. After setting aside some time from full-fledged client projects and business ventures, the outfit’s founder, Massimo, took it upon himself to create something entirely akin to his personal vision. The result was a baby blue R80ST embued with a number of requisitioned R100 internals, Bing carbs, and pod filters, a shortened and slotted inverted front-end fork, and modern Tokico calipers to optimize the bike’s stopping capabilities. Its centerpiece — a bespoke fuel-cell that brings intrinsic meaning to the R80’s tapered body and streamlined seat setup — accents the stylish tracker perfectly. The best part? The bike is currently listed for sale, clocking in at an attractive $26,897. Head to The Bike Shed’s classified area to learn more.
