BMW R100 Cross Country by Clockwork x Crowe

Collaborations are always a great testament to the notion that two heads are better than one. So when a prospective client took a subframe from James Crowe’s Crowe Metal Co. to Sam Guertin of Clockwork Motorcycles, these two knew that working together would yield more than just the client’s desire for an R100 cross-country tourer. And you know what, they were absolutely right.

Almost immediately, the BMW R100 was stripped down and fitted with the new subframe and luggage racks in the rear. They also upgraded the front forks to a set of Suzuki DR650 units while the stock wheels were powder-coated in black and wrapped in a pair of Continental TKC80s for some on-road/off-road compatibility. A new set of handlebars, controls, and throttles were also installed courtesy of Crowe Metal Co. and Clockwork decided a one-off aluminum fender and double headlight setup was in order as well.

Engine wise, Clockwork had it soda blasted and upgraded with a pair of Mikuni TM38 flat slide carbs and a custom exhaust system – stainless steel of course. And to finish off the cross-country tourer, Old Fashioned Standards in Vancouver hooked the bike up with a set of waterproof waxed canvas bags for good measure while the seat pan was finished in burgundy leather thanks to their friends over at New Church Moto. Now all they need is an excuse to take a road trip, which shouldn’t be too difficult.
