1982 BMW R65 The gnat

Frame was chopped and deluged then a one off seat and suspension mount frame handmade and welded up to achieve the bobber lines. CB650 custom tank and dneaper headlight bucket hide the ugly but necessary electrics and the battery is hidden inside the top of the motor, this gives it a nice empty look but works and is street legal. The mudguards are both cut out of one aftermarket triumph item then the hand crafted mounts give the look of a floating front guard and neat bobber style rear. Slash cut exhausts, rear shocks and rear sets are also aftermarket triumph custom items modified to fit the BMW. The pin stripes are painted on and are a colour match to the antique white powder coat used on the frame, swingarm and yokes which complement the retro 50’s almond green paint. All this sits on snowflake rims and sawtooth tread narrow bobber tyres.
It rides well and sounds as good as it looks, always draws a crowd.
