BMW customs are not uncommon. However, certain workshops can be relied upon to consistently produce stellar examples. Café Racer Dreams (CRD) did just that with this elegant Boxer for an '84 model BMW R100. CRD’s designers Pedro García and Efraon Triana took a simple sketch on a napkin and transformed it into this hot piece of machinery. The shape is formed from a 1972 Puch Minicross. The original subframe was ditched in favor of a solo seat configuration. Up front are the forks, front hub, and brake disc from a 1994 BMW F650 and the hub’s laced to a 19” rim, matched to an 18″ spoked setup at the rear.
Moving to the engine, CRD fitted a pair of K&N filters, subtly completing the contour of the engine block. The build was finished off with an assortment of parts from their online store and an enviable paint job that nods towards BMW’s iconic motorsport palette: white, with blue and red stripes.
