Plenty of amazing vintage vehicles are bludgeoned through restoration. Making them “new again” does not always equate to making them better. The original BMW R100RS, built in the late 1970s, remains a classic bike whose looks will stand the test of time, but we’ve seen our fair share of restoration nightmares on this model to know that it should be left to the professionals.
Well, Urban Motor just modded and restored one even beyond its former glory and revelealed their Urban Motor R100RS “Werkstattrenner” for us to drool over. The Berlin, Germany based shop took a 1977 first iteration, removed the original fairing (which, frankly, hides the beautiful front end) and added a K&N cone filter and cold air intake, a brand new custom exhaust and achingly gorgeous black wheels. Final touches with a beautiful solo seat and retro-fitted gas tank with ergo knee pads make this bike a truly coveted vintage piece that should bring many more years of riding (and grandstanding) pleasure. Retro-style may be in, but vintage Beemers will never be out.
