Hookie Turns A BMW Airhead Into An Off-Road Two-Tone Scrambler Moto

Though Hookie Co’s portfolio includes a variety of modern BMW R nineT-based builds and projects — including a transformative bolt-on scrambler kit — the Dresden customs shop also has a knack for churning out one-off takes on the Bavarian brand’s vintage airhead models. And the latest horizontally-opposed boxer twin to leave the German shop is an R100/7 that’s been christened the “Racoon.”

Hookie started by lopping off the factory subframe and adding a hooped unit that kicks up at the back, matched by a scrambler saddle that perfectly fits the contours of the new framework. Riding on a set of blacked-out BMW “Snowflake” wheels shod in TKC80 rubber, the Racoon sports handmade aluminum fenders at each end of the bike, a Koso Thunderbolt LED headlight, Motogadget keyless ignition and switchgear, a YSS mono-shock, and a shortened front-end. Having received a complete rebuild, the Bavarian twin now ejects burnt gasses from a bespoke full two-into-one exhaust culminating in a pair of under-seat Supertrapp cans. There’s also a bare aluminum tank and fenders, with everything south of the subframe receiving the blacked-out treatment. To see more of the build, check out Hookie Co.’s website linked below.
