Custom BMW R100RT by Upcycle Garage

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This custom BMW motorcycle is one of two cafe racers recently designed and constructed by the seller’s workshop, Upcycle Garage. Finished in two-tone green with a leather solo seat, the bike started out as a 1988 R100RT with a monolever swingarm. It now features an R90S-style quarter fairing, a Kawasaki ZX-6R front end, custom rear sets, and LED lighting. The 980cc opposed-twin is paired with a five-speed gearbox and equipped with a high-mount, 2-into-1 exhaust system. Modern electronics and instrumentation were sourced from motogadget, including their motoscope pro display and m.unit digital control panel. This custom R100 is now being offered with a clear California title.

Black powder coat has been applied to the frame and swingarm, and a stitched leather solo seat is supported by a custom subframe with LED lights integrated below. Front turn indicators are positioned on the handlebars, and the BMW roundels have been deleted from the fuel tank.
