After years of filming, documenting, and illustrating motorcycle culture, the lifestyle is sure to have left its mark on you in one way or another. As was the case with Cam Elkins, a prominent content creator within the two-wheeled community who’s best known for his involvement with the lauded short-films, Stories of Bike.

Elkins was so mesmerized by the rides of his subjects that he decided to contract Sydney, Australia’s Gasoline Motor Co. to build one of his own — a 1986 BMW R65 dubbed “KPR1.” From the manufacturer’s brilliantly employed boxer engine, all the way to the bike’s technically adept monoshock, the R65 is beloved within the custom motorcycle community for its great handling, beautiful silhouette, and renowned stability. A rebuilt drivetrain, overhauled carbs and jets, and a lowered front suspension give the cycle an aggressive feel, while an updated top clamp (courtesy of Retrofit), Motogadget speedo, and Beringer hand controls bring the bike into modernity. A handsome royal blue paint adorns the tank of the KPR1 — perfectly complimenting the cycle’s sleek composure.
