“Clean lines and fine proportions, refined aesthetics – all attributes that can not be associated with current BMW models. But influenced by Café Racer design styles, URBAN MOTOR from Berlin has created a minimalist looking Boxer”
Earl Grey took over 400 hours to build and was completed in December 2010. The frame was cleaned and blasted and powder coated black, it’s engine was overhauled and breathing was freed up with the aid of 40mm carbs, K&N filters and a Hoskins 2 into 2 exhaust. A custom tail section was built and BMW R 100 RS progressive forks were added. Braided lines and a new lighting system added to the bikes good looks.
Since completion, The BMW has only done 50kms and has appeared in several European motorcycle magazines.
