BMW R80RT ‘White Phantom’ By Kingston Custom

High-performance and vintage styling are two things that don’t often go together. But that doesn’t mean they can’t or even that they shouldn’t. And perhaps nowhere is that more apparent than in this BMW R80RT from Kingston Custom, called ‘White Phantom.’

Interestingly enough, the donor bike for this custom motorcycle was actually a touring motorcycle from the 80s. But we like it much better now with its slimmed down frame structure, new body shield side panels (finished with a heat-resistant composite coating used in F1), and striking vintage style cues. You might also notice that the 798cc engine has a big turbocharger protruding from the side of the bodywork, giving this gorgeous ride one hell of a kick. It’s certainly an unusual looking cafe racer, but we’d count ourselves lucky to get to ride such a well-built retro boxer bike.
