BMW R90/6 by Kontrast Kreations

Ramon Seiler of Kontrast Kreations typically restores classic cars and motorcycles to their original form, but when a BMW R90/6 came across his desk (so-to-speak), he wanted to do something he’s never done—build a custom cycle.

The result is an interestingly-designed bike with a steampunk feel. Seiler made quite a few notable changes, including placing the battery into the air filter box, building a new subframe that uses a bolt-on system (in case he ever wants to return the bike to stock), and a cool under-seat ignition mount. It also has a side-mounted tail light and plate bracket. The handgrips have been matched to the new leather seat. The front forks have been lowered slightly, and were improved with Wilbers springs. The bike sports a Motogadget m-Unit control box with a new wiring harness, and every fastener were upgraded to stainless steel. The fuel tank was painted a gorgeous Cyber Grey, with a clear-coat added for good measure. [Via]
