BMW GS Hunter 1200 by Ton Up Garage

You know you’ve spotted a great adventure bike when a custom bike workshop builds out a scrambler with the intentions to race the ride in the annual Scram Africa, a 2000km rally through the Moroccan desert over the course of 8 grueling days. The job was no easy task, but by the looks of the final project, Ton-Up Garage did an outstanding job of making the road-friendly GS1200 an off-road ready machine.

Initially, they built out a new fuel tank from an old R80 that is now longer and wider than the original. In order to accomplish this, Ton-Up had to also remove the ABS system from the bike. They also modified the upper frame of the bike, fit an electric box that now houses the battery, added a set of rear footpegs, rear mudguard and a side case to keep additional fuel handy for the journey. The crew also built out the bike’s front section to accommodate its PIAA headlights, and it now rides atop some new spoke wheels wrapped within a pair of TKC 80 tires. The perfect on-road/off-road ride if you ask us.
