Loose Screw’s Custom Hercules Is The Ultimate ’80s-Style MX Restomod

Based roughly half-an-hour outside of Munich, Loose Screw is a DIY motorcycle service and customs shop headed up by Enrico Pauli. In addition to helping customers modify and wrench on their own bikes, the outfit also partakes in its own bespoke bike projects, the latest of which to roll out of the Dachau-based shop is this unapologetically 1980s Hercules GS250 restomod.

Starting with a 1970s donor specimen, Enrico set out to breathe new life into German-built thumper, returning the quarter-liter single to its former glory while at the same time ushering the machine squarely into the 21st century via a handful of modern aesthetic tweaks. The two-stroke Sachs engine at the heart of the bike was given a thorough overhaul, along with the frame which was de-tabbed and powder-coated in white. The rolling chassis also benefits from upgraded OEM forks that now pack progressive internals and a contemporary set of Bitubo rear shocks. The stock tank remains in play, though it’s been paired with a one-off seat upholstered in white vinyl with turquoise piping. There’s also an aft fender plucked from a vintage KTM, and a new aftermarket unit in front. Completing the build is an ‘80s-style retro-futuristic air-brush gradient livery adorning the tank, side covers, fenders, and fork lowers.
