Germans have a knack for petrol-based engineering. This a fact. And the folk over at Munich-based Diamond Atelier serve only to support this notion. They’re inventive, cutting edge and not ones for repetition when it comes to building out BMW bikes. So when we got wind of this BMW R100R build-out – dubbed DA#7 – we couldn’t help but to admire their continued grace in the world bike building.

First off, the engine was entirely rebuilt to ensure ample power and performance behind the throttle. It was accomplished via a mid-’70s trials gas tank built within a custom-made rear frame loop from a single piece of tubing. The seat was then placed in the frame loop as to keep it’s actual size hidden. The #7 also hosts a pair of rebuilt and lowered forks, rides atop Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP2s, features hidden throttle lines and ignition cables that seemingly disappear into the engine block for a minimalist appearance, and house a set of signature battery packs. A tactical and sadistic looking ride, built for one very fortunate rider.
