This 1982 BMW R100 was rebuilt from the ground up while keeping vintage esthetics and modern ergonomics in mind. The goal for this R100 was to keep it classic, yet have the aggressive café racer look and attitude that just doesn’t exist on the roads today. It truly is a one of a kind motorcycle, it will turn even a novice of motorcyclist’s head. On this particular rebuild, every nut and bolt, O-ring and gasket was replaced and nothing overlooked. Aside from restoring original parts, a lot of new features has been upgraded on this build and include the following listed below. This BMW R100 brings an elegant classic ride to the 21st century with a stance that surly won’t go unnoticed.
BIKE: 1982 BMW R100, 5 speed transmission, electric start, 19" front tire, 18" rear tire, 1000cc boxer engine
Electrical:Motogadget M-unit is the brains of this bike. We eliminated the old bulky factory wire harness, fuses, and relays to utilize Motogadget’s mystic piece of modern engineering known as the M- Unit. This allows the operator to add on electrical devices, such as, hand grip warmers, cellphone charger, etc with ease. This device is fitted under the tank to be invisible to onlookers. The device has all of the necessary fuses and relays built in and is known as indestructible. Made in Germany, and will not disappoint
TANK:The tank was painted in BMW’s Mineral Grey Metallic with a multi stage high gloss clear coat that will stay looking wet for decades. The inside of the tank was stripped and resealed with a tank liner coating. The fuel cap was replaced with a slimmer cap for a better look and feel for the build style. The fuel taps/petcock o-rings and gaskets on the tank are new along with the new fuel lines and filters.
CARBURETORS:The Bing 40 Carburetors were soda blasted and fully rebuilt along with a fresh coat of epoxy gasoline proof coating to keep the aluminum from oxidizing like the bare aluminum does on the stock look.
ENGINE:The engine was completely stripped down and new piston rings, head gaskets, valve gaskets, pushrods, starter motor, and boots were installed. While the engine was apart the case was soda blasted, and deep cleaned. New points and condenser, gaskets, and voltage reg were replaced to have this bike startup and run as it did when it was new. The clutch and flywheel were inspected, deep cleaned and rebalanced. all engine consumables were replaced including rear main seal. The engine was repainted in a matte epoxy black to resist heat and solvents.
GEARBOX:The transmission was taken apart deep cleaned, inspected and reassembled. There are no consumable parts in the trasmission and all parts passed inspection. Painted in the same epoxy paint to match the engine.
WHEELS:Front (19”) and rear (18”) have both been converted to tubeless wheels. These are BMW’s snowflakes that were stripped and coated in a high gloss black powder for a modern aggressive look, while being able to withstand whatever conditions you throw at it. These wheels look amazing, and hard to believe that these are the original wheels
FORKS:The forks were dissembled and had its bump stops, fork oil, and internals replaced and cleaned. new gaskets and crush rings were installed. The forks are protected with the same epoxy black as engine and gear box
BRAKES:The front calipers were rebuilt with new seals and pads. The brake pads were replaced with new Brembo’s.

The brake lines were replaced with custom CoreMoto lines. The front brake master cylinder is brand new. The rear caliper was also rebuilt and rear brake master cylinder was rebuilt.
HEADLIGHT:The headlight has a built in speedometer that imitates the 60's style of older Bmw's and other European bikes. The speedometer runs off of GPS, which is nice and accurate. Finished in a flat black for a stealth appearance
LIGHTS:Mini indicator lights were installed into the top clamp to express "TURN R/L, HIGHBEAM, N, OIL PRESSURE." This is a handmade part for a very unique look. Under the seat is a Brake, tail, and turn signal LED bar. Hardly noticeable when the bike is off as to not distract your eyes from the natural lines of this motorcycle. Installed into the headlight mounts are “break-pfroof” LED front turn signals.
