When it’s your first time stepping to the plate, it’s hard enough making contact, let alone bashing one off the wall for extra bases, but that’s just what Munich-based bike builders Diamond Atelier has done with this 1992 BMW R80RT conversion.

Founded just over a year ago by Tom Konecny and Pablo Steigleder, this bike was stripped bare, while the 18″ spoked front wheel and floating brake discs were taken from an R100R. The forks were lowered three inches and clamped by custom upper triples, while top-flight controls were fitted to Fehling clip-on bars. The headlight features a mix of Yamaha and Honda parts, and the tail section was all done from scratch. Other modifications include new housings for the alternator, starter and shaft drive, and the cherry on top is that icy pale blue paint scheme. [Photography: Philipp Wulk]
