APEX PREDATOR. Macco Motor’s ‘Great White’ BMW R100RS Cafe Racer

Posted on March 20, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic, Racer. No Comments

Reviving clapped-out road bikes from sheds and garages is all fine and good, but spare a thought for the old racers of years gone by. More likely to end life upside down than right-side up – and probably on fire – it’s a tough gig to survive without some serious war wounds.
