BMW K100RS Cafe Racer

I don’t have to explain that the BMW K-series quickly became adopted as one of the most popular base bikes for cafe racer projects. We see a lot of builders, both pro’s and shed builders take their K’s up to speed. In fact, one of the most popular bikes last year was this K100 by Retrorides. It melted down our servers here…! Today I got another cool Flying Brick cafe racer in my mailbox. This one is built by Motochef from Sweden and is based on a K100RS. This machine is literally stuffed with high-end parts and for most aftermarket parts they’ve shopped at Caferacerwebshop.

The powerful 1000cc has been modded with a custom DNA Filter air filter and custom made intake chamber. The machine runs on full Motogadget M-Unit blue electrical wiring system controllable via Bluetooth on your mobile phone. The Motogadget Motoscope Pro decorates the instrument panel with its many available options like 0-100km/h acceleration and so on. The paint job was made by a professional in its industry TJ studio with a gas tank cap from Italian manufacturer Studiofibre Handmade.

The bike is road legal and TUV ready with its original exhaust being customized to blow from the side of the custom hand-made footpegs and gear levers.
Front suspension was fitted from a GSXR1000 with its rotor discs and brake calipers and the rear shock on the mono-swing arm is the high-end fully adjustable model from Ohlins!
Brembo front brake pump and rear Brembo caliper.

New Avon tires, Highsider front and rear lights, custom-made number plate holder, and many other hand-made details will leave you impressed with the attention to details of the build. The bike has been fully disassembled and powder coated, renewed and restored.
