Hailing from Devon, England, prolific BMW bike customizer Kevils Speed Shop presents its latest masterpiece. The 1983 BMW R100, nicknamed Eleven, was commissioned by a Belgian collector, who already calls his own a collection of 10 motorcycles. Stripped down to its essentials, the customized bike lacks everything related to performance, resulting in less visual fuss, and of course less weight. The engine providing a whopping 70 hp, however, hasn’t been touched at all. A rear disc brake conversion provides increased stopping power. Clip-ons and Raask rearsets have created a sportier riding position, and a custom tail section provides the sleek looks to match. The overall design is topped off with silver, bronze and cream colors, making for a distinct slightly retro-luxe appearance.
