1992 BMW R80 RT by Vagabund Moto

Based out of their workshop in Graz, Austria, Vagabund’s Paul Brauchart and Philipp Rabl aren’t fans of building the same thing twice. So, when a request came down the pipeline for them to replicate a recent build, the duo worked to fulfill the needs of that customer request but at the behest of keeping things a fresh and innovative as possible.

The bike in question here is a ’92 BMW R80 RT with only 15,500 miles logged on the odometer so little to no engine work was required – leaving Paul and Phillip ample time for some cosmetic upgrades and designs. This included an entire revamp of the body, save the fuel tank, including a 3D printed seat that’s also custom upholstered and now features an LED backlight. Additionally, they fabricated a custom-made subframe, replaced the stock rear shock with a YSS upgrade, shortened the front forks by 60 mm, powder coated the ride, introduced a Motogadget speedometer up front along with LSL handlebars and now set the sled atop a pair of Continental ContiRoadAttack tires, K&N filters, a Supertrapp muffler and a set of glass fiber-reinforced black plastic covers which add a touch of dark futurism to the German machine.
