Diamond Atelier Built A Timeless Classic With This Custom BMW Moto

Diamond Atelier has made an undeniable impact within the world of custom motorcycles, and with each successful build, they put another notch into their belt. It’s no secret that the company is known for its unique ideologies, and with its most recent project, the 1990 BMW R100GS, their original outlook has become all-the-more apparent.

The R100GS reigns supreme as one of the most modified motorcycle platforms in the world; as such, it’s become increasingly difficult to build a cycle that hasn’t been seen, conceptualized, and brought to life by a handful of other companies. With this understanding at its back, Diamond Atelier set out to create the 1990 airhead you see here — an outlandish, but beautiful rendition that pays no heed to the qualms of contemporary motorcycle building. Staying on-trend has never been a characteristic of the German outfit, and it shows. This stripped and de-tabbed offering forgoes the traditional process that’s become a trademark of BMW’s lauded motos; instead, illustrating the builder’s propensity for innovative mechanical modifications. A shortened subframe and bespoke Wilber Nightline shock accent the R100GS’ dual 320mm petal rotor brake setup, while steel-braided ABM lines and a CNC-machined fork-brace provide the perfect contrast to the bike’s legendary air-cooled twin engine.
