BMW R100R Cafe Racer by Diamond Atelier

Send Munich-based Diamond Atelier a BMW motorcycle and you’re bound to witness bike customization at its finest, which is surprising considering the company’s age. Breaking out onto the scene just two years ago they released some amazingly clean builds that caught our eyes the moment they dropped on their site. And once again, low-and-behold, Diamond Atelier has stolen our hearts with yet another beautiful project.

To start, they tore down an early ‘90s R100R to gain a better understanding of where the project should lead. As you can see, Diamond Atelier opted for classic cafe racer lines from front to back without any distracting shapes. It’s smooth and easy, finishing super clean with an exposed rear wheel and a custom seat made from .8mm sheet aluminum. They also outfitted the bike with a Motogadget speedo, and a titanium exhaust system with a custom-made pop-up gas cap. What’s even more amazing, the builders Tom Konecny and Pablo Steigleder are only in their twenties, which thankfully gives us plenty of time to see what the future holds for these two artists.
