BMW Supermotard

This Japanese homebrew BMW (once upon a time 1990s R80GS) supermotard, found on Seb's Ze Last Chance Garage du 78 blog, is an utter friggin mess. But I Love it! I still have the 17" trolley wheels and WhitePower USD forks from my CCM which were meant to be going onto eBAy, but now I'm inspired to try and match this daftness. Looks like a BSA B50 trials tank.

Gobsmacked. I'd love to know what the "seat unit" was in its previous incarnation. It looks like a hacksaw has been applied to some drainage pipe, cool but not too comfy I imagine.

apparently the seat upholstery is two of those padded drip pillows you find in bloody supermarket steak packaging, that have then been toasted to dry them out.

Very cool!

Firstly seen from MP at knoen.blogspot.com I think.

Did I mention that I love my new Tshirt "If you don't limp..."?

Crying, if it's genuine R80 GS, I want the original forks
