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.
