BMW R80 Project #4 by Elemental Custom Cycles

Located just outside of Nuremberg, Germany is a small custom workshop with one mantra in mind: “Life’s too short to ride boring motorcycles.” Needless to say, we’re in complete agreement. Which is why this exciting iteration on a BMW R80 – dubbed Project #4 – from Elemental Custom Cycles caught our attention right from the get-go.

The donor here is an ’85 BMW R80 Monolever with a fully functional 797.5cc boxer twin engine so there was little need to make any adjustments there. However, the bike was in need of some cosmetic treatment so the good folk over at ECC figured a 2-in-1 stainless steel exhaust manifold and under-engine muffler was a good place to start. They also worked to lower the front fork by 50mm and outfit the rear with a solo YSS shock. Additionally, push-button controls complete with a Motogadget M unit up front brings the dash into the 21st century, while a sleek rear fairing and frame fabricated by ECC adds a sleek villainous vibe to the project. Kudos to whatever lucky customer gets their hands on this sled.
