Sorry mate, i cant as i did not do this work. The fabrication work has been done by a workshop local to me and the guy used to weld roll cages for cars which is just about all i know.

Nice one!! I've seen a few of those images floating around. Very clean lines, great looking bikes.

Shouldn't that poster say "Spirit of the 80s"?

Mono's are 80's bikes. Wait, why does that Mono have a left swing arm bracket?

I wondered the same thing. That looks like a photoshop creation. Look closely and it looks more and more like an illustration.

Yea, I knew it was a photoshop, just wondered why they felt the need to add that swing arm bar (?)

Also cute how the brake line enters the Brembo...

Yeah, interesting with the bar setup. At the end of the day a photoshop or illustration is just exactly what it is. Doesn't necessarily mean a working design... The company is called spirit of the 70s and they do everything from old to new. I just like these drawing so much for the lines the bikes have, the seat, tank they are all so clean.

I love this thread, especially the concept art. I'm working on my own R65 racer and was wondering if anyone had ever put together a list of suitable parts and sources? I've found a few BMW cafe specific web sites, but wondering what universal parts can be had out there cheaply?

Yeah, I also like the design aspect of it also. I'm lucky to have a graphic designer on board who knows enough about bikes so we bounce ideas off each other for many hours at a time. He made a few photo shops early on (I got grilled for starting a thread with this picture in it) he also did a later version with how the real exhaust is running, under seat and exiting through the cowl.



What parts do you need exactly? I have had something's custom made for the project mainly because I was going for a certain radical style but there is plenty only to create a great looking cafe racer, seats, instruments, bars etc etc...
