R100 BMW Rocker

Posted on August 6, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 3 comments

Last September Gateway BMW bought a sorry looking 1988 R100RT and Ryan Manley (pictured) was given the job to transform the R100 into a beautiful cafe racer. The silver tank and seat with black frame, wheels and final drive is a great look. We also dig the new exhaust pipes on it. They are EMGO universal Shorty pipes, which apparently can be heard over a Harley. The seat is not finished in this pic but you can see it on the Gateway BMW site, plus all the details on the build. The bike has been sold to some lucky bastard and I’m sure he hasn’t stopped grinning.

    hi, love your bike, i have a 1981 R65. which although not in great condition, still deserves to be saved. one of the things i want to do is, change the exhausts for shorties like yours and so, i was wondering if you could point me in the right direction as to where i might find them. also, when you changed yours, did you have to make any tune up modifications such as carb jets etc?

    kind regards
