The Blackist

1984 BMW R100 Custom

The Bike was designed and built by Nick Ghobashi

The entire original subframe has been removed and the single shock absorber grip . Custom made floating seat, as well as the seat itself, led brake light incorporated in the poly leather seat.

Subsequently, the front and rear fenders, the seat support and the seat itself, the battery box, license plate holder, headlight holder and some other parts were handmade.

In the aesthetic part it was easy, all the paint from the fuel tank was left until it was left in the original metal, which after being polished was lacquered in matt. For the rest of the motorcycle parts, practically powder paint (electrostatic paint) was used combining matte black with textured black.

The front fork Suzuki GSXR conversion with BMW custom hub made from aircraft aluminum , although it has been lowered in height and an off-road handlebar has been installed. The original rims have been fitted with new Continental TCK80 tires.

The BMW R fuel tank has been preserved, barbecue black to use as a finish on this motorcycle transformed from start to finish.

All this work has been accompanied by a Motogadget Pro digital odometer, a new front headlight, front turn signals for Motogadget grips and led turn signals , are other details to highlight from all the endless modifications that this custom motorcycle has.

It is not the typical BMW cafe racer, it is a unique customized BMW in which no detail has been left behind… A brutal and elegant BMW scrambler at the same time.
