Commissioned by a German doctor, Slovenia’s ER Motorcycles' latest venture - the BMW R69S "Thompson" - is a work of mechanical art. Using the iconic R69s frame - the same one found in ER's "Voltron" build - the vintage production motorcycle is an amalgamation of various BMW components. The refurbished engine and transmission were taken from an R100, while an R80 supplied the swingarm and upper triple tree. Aside from these few manufactured parts, everything else - from the saddle to the exhaust headers and fender - was a custom job. The blue paint finish of the Schorsch Meier fuel tank, offset by wooden detailing and leather trim, gives the bike a modern yet timeless facelift.
