When it comes to custom-built motorcycles, there’s a neverending stream of clients who emerge from all walks of life. From everyday blue-collar workers and tradesmen, all the way to celebrities and professional athletes, there’s often no “standard” for those who enjoy a little bit of two-wheeled mayhem — and now, Bolt Motor Co. has unveiled a handsome new 1991 BMW K75 built for none other than former Sevilla FC goalkeeper, Andrés Palop.
The client approached Bolt Motor Co. with an odd request — to build an understated and minimalist bike that would stand the test of time, combine a dark, stealthy aura with contrasting red accents, and retain “most” of the original platform’s blocky body style. Bolt confronted the K75S with a relentless mindset and created a one-of-a-kind cycle utilizing a revitalized K100 tank, newly acquired Brembo brakes, and Motogadget electronics, as well as a Ducati-sourced front suspension. The bike’s menacing carbon fiber rear wheel cover perfectly complements its waterproof suede seat, which has been dressed in a stealthy red and black colorway to reference the colors of the renowned futbol club.
