BMW R nineT Urban G/S ‘6DAYS66’ By Unique Custom Cycles

In the modern era where every style of riding has spawned a specific sub-genre of motorcycle, the scrambler has been able to hold onto its prestige as the classic looking predecessor to the motocross category, drawing new generations of followers to the dated styling. For anyone attracted to the vintage scrambler appeal, this BMW R nineT Urban G/S build from Unique Custom Cycles is exactly the eye candy they have been looking for.

Paying homage to the gone but not forgotten R 80 G/S produced during the 80’s, Ronna Norén and his team of Swedish builders set out to whip the contemporary bike into classic scrambler shape. The first thing to go from the factory trim of the Urban G/S was the two rider saddle. It was swapped for a chopped version from the R nineT Scrambler variant, and capped with a custom rear fender that matched the shape of the newly made tubular subframe. Replacing the subframe allowed for UCC to ditch the stock air box, making way for a pair of clamp on K&N filters, which cut down on some of the bulky look carried by the stock setup. Suspension was swapped for a heavy duty set from Öhlins, giving the bike a Retro43 fork and STX46 rear shock, which perched the bike perfectly for an aggressive stance sure to get anyone into a bit of off-highway mischief.
