Ironwood Mixes Up Its Signature Style With A Bobbed BMW K100 Cafe Fighter Moto

Based in Amsterdam and founded by Arjan van den Boom and Nick de Ruijter in 2012, Ironwood Customs is an eminent one-off bike builder that’s largely credited for introducing the bobbed BMW brat-fighter genre. For its latest one-off work, IWC has taken its highly-lauded signature formula and tweaked it to deliver an even more aggressive bobbed Bavarian with a cafe-inspired tail section.

Starting with a 1987 BMW K100, IWC has stripped the bike down and built it back up with a kicked-up subframe capped off with a custom hexagonal-stitched leather seat. The stock tank now sports a black and gold paint scheme, matching the gold accents on the engine cases, and the extension piece that feeds into a DNA pod filter. The factory exhaust has also been replaced with an entirely bespoke unit culminating in an under-seat Akrapovič muffler plucked off a mid-aughts-era sportbike. Other noteworthy elements include the front-end off of a Ducati Panigale superbike slotted in custom triples, a Koso Thunderbolt LED headlight, Rizoma-style canisters, a Wilbers mono-shock, an aftermarket race-grade radiator unit, new clip-ons, and a Motoscope Pro display and bar-end LED indicators from Motogadget.
