1979 BMW R100 RS by The Bike Lab from Barcellona
"We are a workshop from Barcelona, we’ve been working for more than a year, as The Bike Lab, but we have years working for some other workshops.
We always seek the balance between aesthetics and functionality, and looking really careful to details.
Our last creation comes from a 1979 BMW R100 RS, we wanted to make a modern handling bike maintaining the classic look. We have made custom sub-frame, leather seat, fenders …, we’ve changed almost everything except the tank, and the engine, including lights, handlebar, shocks, brakes and the complete electrical system.
Front fork comes from a Ducati multistrada 1000, brakes are Brembo from a Aprilia mille, with custom made aluminum center brakes made by NG brakes, and the pump is a Competition PT one. Rear shock are custom made Hagon Nitro. We like to leave a unique detail in every custom built, and in this one is the fron fender with a single side mount made from aluminum.
Stay tuned, we are going to finish lots of bikes in the next months, new website, and
new workshop and lots of surprises."
