BMW R1100S by Moto Adonis

Initially released back in 1999, the BMW R1100S was originally fitted with the most powerful boxer twin engine BMW had built at that time. It’s a bit of a complexity in the bike world, resulting in few workshops actually willing to undertake any custom job with the powerful ride as their canvas. Not Moto Adonis. In fact, they jumped at the chance to give this custom job a whirl when presented with the opportunity.

At first, the crew knew the bike needed a new subframe so they went ahead and fabricated one themselves in order to accommodate the new seat and rear cowl. A new tank from a BMW R100S police bike was then fitted to the ride, along with an LED strip in the rear, a new electronics box that was fashioned to the bike, a pair of Hagon shocks in the from and rear, and some m.switch controls from Motogadget to round things out quite nicely. A 1085cc cafe racer? Yes please. [H/T: Silodrome]
