1983 BMW R80 Street Scrambler
“Uber”- denoting an outstanding or supreme example of a particular kind of person or thing.
This Kevils Custom Build is based on a 1983 BMW R80 and has been commissioned by a customer from Munich, Germany who is involved with the manufacturing of after market motorcycle luggage, talk about sending coal to Newcastle , Built in Germany, refined in England and sold back to Germany!
When the gentleman came to Kevils Speed Shop last year to commission his bespoke motorcycle, he had a couple of ideas in his mind which were; Alloy tanked street scrambler, a high level exhaust system and a distressed leather seat, we took on board his requirements and built the bike around his ideas using our well honed skills and experience.
This bike features our hand crafted /6 series brushed alloy fuel tank which has been clear coated to enhance its classic curves, our new Street Scrambler rear subframe with tiny bright LED indicators set in the ends of the supporting bars, also our new fork brace which keeps everything stiff up front, brushed stainless fenders have also been clear coated. We fabricated a stainless high level exhaust and stubby silencer, a distressed leather saddle bag was also made at the same time as the seat so my customer could fit his tablet and keep it charged from the bikes side mounted PowerPoint! The blacked out spoke wheels are also fitted with a nice chunky set of Dunlops for when conditions get tough, the battery is neatly positioned under the transmission to leave the centre of the frame empty for a minimal look.
Obviously this was a total ground up rebuild renewing, replacing, upgrading, rewiring, refreshing, restoring, renovating, refurbishing, refinishing every single component as with all Kevils BMW’s not leaving any thing to chance.
