BMW R80 RT Cafe Racer By Moto Adonis

The Cafe Racer has been around since the early 1950s and sports one of the most unique and recognizable frame styles in the moto world.  When a client asked the team at Moto Adonis for a custom cafe that was both retro and futuristic, they decided to utilize design cues from a variety of the customer’s favorite builds. As a result, their newest project, the BMW R80 RT was born.

The RT was once one of BMW’s 750cc touring models, complete with a windshield, a gigantic fairing, and a two-seat design that most modern cafe racers forgo. The bike was completely stripped, discarding almost every factory part before replacing the pieces with hand-fabricated alternatives. The original tank was swapped out for one from a donor CB500 and placed onto the newly fabricated subframe of the bike. A low profile Alcantara leather seat was also installed, followed closely by a pair of red anodized inverted forks from a Suzuki GSXR SRAD. Matte black aluminum full-disc wheels, bar end blinkers, a new headlight, and a hand-crafted two-into-one exhaust round out the modern reimagining.
