BMW R100 Scrambler by Retro Moto
What can you accomplish in two weeks? We might be able to read a book (with pictures, please) or lose a pound, but there’s no way we’d ever be able to take a stock BMW and turn it into a wicked cool Scrambler like this. But that’s just what Junior Burrell of Retro Moto has done. Bravo, sir.
What began as a stock ’95 BMW R100 was then stripped down, just leaving the engine intact. A new stainless steel subframe and alloy seat pan were created, with the pan then getting covered in foam and wrapped in black leather. The monoshock suspension was upgraded to a progressive shock, and once the frame and wheels were powder coated, everything was bolted back together. Other highlights include Renthal handlebars, a single Acewell gauge sitting above a new Hella headlamp, a light blue paint job, double-sided LED Oberon turn signals, and a custom made 2-into-1 stainless exhaust system with a cone style muffler to let the neighbors know when you’re taking it for a ride.
