Welcome to the sale of this truly stunning and unique professionally built BMW r80 Cafe-Brat by Reynolds Custom Motorcycles of York.
The bike started life as an ex police force BMW and comes with the original police files, and had only covered 26000 miles from new, it was then subjected to a complete nut and bolt strip down and transformed into this gorgeous styled Cafe-Brat that RCM do so well!
Starting with the frame it was stripped and shaved of all the unnecesarry tabs, battery tray and mounts , rear exhaust and footpeg hangers and rear subframe. A bespoke rear subframe was then fabricated up and welded on, once happy with all the metalwork it went to get shot blasted and professionally painted in a deep 2k gloss black.Front forks and wheels also got shot blasted and painted the same 2k gloss black to match.
The engine was stripped and cleaned and then was painted in a lovely matte Black . Rear swingarm and bevel gear were stripped cleaned and painted the same matte black to match with the rear wheel painted in a combination of matte and gloss black so everything flows perfectly, its the small details like this that make a difference . All new fluids were put in the driveshaft ,bevel gear and engine on rebuild.
Carbs stripped and cleaned and balanced with new pod airfilters. Also on the engine where the airbox used to sit is a bespoke cover which now hides a new small lithium battery along with re routed electrics to completely clean up the engine area, Re located ignition and New Exhaust pipes fitted.
Moving further up the bike a seat pan was fabricated up and seat made and covered in cinnamon leather along with a set of tank pads to match. I have not permanently stuck these on so its up to you if you want these fitted or not. Under the seat an undertray was made from a transparent black perspex which houses the rear light, behind this is a set of l.e.d. indicators which are housed in the seat pan and can only be seen when lit.[neat touch] The petrol tank was stripped and then professionally painted in 2k aluminium with several coats of lacquer and new badges fitted.
Up front a new digital speedometer now sits on the top yoke along with new clip on bars and grips for that cafe racer stance. A new headlight resides at the front completely changing the character of this old airhead BMW . All original switch gear is retained on the bars and new fork gaiters fitted , Brembo brakes refreshed and new fluids.
