    Is THIS "Retro" enough for ya?

    PURISTS BEWARE!

    This off the BMWMOA FaceBook page- a custom build retro looking BMW, built around an R1200R motor.

    This greatly descriptive paragraph says it all- and more!

    "The beefy chassis parts and wide flat twin look all the more muscular with the old school tank and tractor-style seat grafted on, with 50′s style bullet tail lights and lack of rear subframe over the exposed rear fender. The components conspire together to create a bike that looks like a manga heroÔÇÖs retro ride from an imagined future-past."

    The cheapest thing on a BMW is the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.

    Should be cheaper than a R1200R, right, since they got rid of all the extra "stuff"?


    That's a cool custom, for sure.

    I'd ride it... but not all the way to Oregon. Looks like a lot of fun.

    There are two roads in life; the twisty one is vastly more fun.
