1979 BMW R100/7 Street Scrambler
Based on a 1979 BMW R100/7
The idea was to build a very minimal BMW R100/7 1000cc street scrambler to show and offer For Sale! We chose a strong burnt orange named ‘Vesuvius’ from the Land Rover colour chart which tones in perfectly with the high gloss graphite powder coated frame and contrasting graphite grey stripe on the centre of the Kawasaki fuel tank taken from a 1970’s KZ400 and with some clever modifications it fits really well.
Together with our newly developed scrambler rear subframe and skinny diamond stitched leather seat, this gives the bike a very low purposeful profile look along with matt black wide low tapered fatbars.
We opted for an aftermarket top engine cover leaving the bike air box free and fitted some k&n style air filters for the jetted up Mikuni carbs. We also applied the ever popular Conti tyres and blacked out spoke wheels.
We added Titanium wrapped Two into one high level exhaust system and married it to twin scrambler silencers for that perfect burble. Tiny led tail light and discreet rear indicators fitted neatly into the subframe supports, with a tough lower fork brace to stiffen up the front end and headlight guard to protect the cool halo headlamp which were also fabricated.
