Return of the Cafe Racers - Roughchild Moto

Roughchild Moto


Roughchild Motorcycles are original BMW motorcycles from the 1970s and 1980s that have been completely disassembled and rebuilt to exacting standards. Upgrades are made from the frame up, from gusseting and bracing to modern electrical systems optimized with today’s technology. The combination of professional restoration processes and well-thought-out mechanical upgrades make for a truly unique and rewarding riding and ownership experience.

Located in Southern California, Roughchild specializes in the sympathetic restoration and creative reinvention of BMW motorcycles.

We are dedicated to the passionate study and preservation of the world’s most respected motorcycles, optimizing their aesthetic appeal with a fresh perspective and modern techniques. It begins with an idea: What do you want to ride?
