|Founded in 2013 by twentysomethings Tom Konecny and Pablo Steigleder, Munich bike builders Diamond Atelier put their first work up for sale, a completely custom BMW R80 from 1992. The 18″ spoked front wheel and floating brake discs were sourced from an R100R, while the forks were lowered three inches and clamped by custom upper triples. Top-flight controls were fitted to Fehling clipon bars, and the headlight is a combination of Yamaha and Honda parts. The tail section was built from scratch, the frame was completely de-tabbed and cleaned up, and new housings were designed for the alternator, starter and shaft drive. Finally, the pale blue finish was hand-mixed, accented with black pinstriping as a nod to BMW’s heritage. More pics after more.
