BMW R 100 RT custom

… by wrenchmonkees

fairing was removed and the big R100RT was taken apart. The rear subframe was removed, and a new one welded on. The stock alloy wheels were replaced with wire wheels, 18” both front and back.
 The front fork was also rebuilt, and extra long Bitubo shocks were installed to give 
extra clearance for dirt roads and sand dunes. The engine and carburetors were overhauled, and a K&N air filter and larger oil cooler were fitted.
The R100RT was then treated to a complete rewire and fitted with a heavy duty Odyssey battery, plus new lights front and back. The standard R100 tank was replaced with one from an older BMW /6 model, “to give the bike 
a slimmer, more old school look.”
New Tarozzi rearsets were mounted, further back in the frame than stock. a few custom made linkages for the brake and gear shift were required. All perishable parts were replaced, including hoses, bearings and seals.
