With solid performance, quintessential German mechanics and engineering, and a decidedly dated-looking aesthetic design, BMW’s K Series models make for stellar candidates for customization — as evidenced by the latest “Flying Brick” from Cytech Motorcycles.
The build has received a custom-machined billet subframe and a matching billet swing-arm with an integrated horizontal mono-shock, a modified grilled belly-pan, CNC’d rear-sets and new clip-ons, a Monza-style tank cap, a bespoke billet top triple accommodating a Motogadget Motoscope Pro display, and a truncated humped cafe tail adorned in gray suede with blue accent stitching and a custom embroidered Roundel. Cloaked in an iconic Audi Nardo Grey livery, the BMW-based cafe racer also boasts a Max-Inc LED headlight behind a bespoke Roundel-style lens that’s embedded in a custom cowl that’s capped off with a Puig windscreen. Performance upgrades come in the form of Luftmeister Performance cams, a custom airbox, a modified Cafe4Racer exhaust with dual honeycombed silencers, larger braking rotors, Progressive front fork springs paired with a Telefix front fork brace, and a set of spoked R1100GS wheels shod in Metzeler Roadtec tires.
