ROUGH DIAMOND: BMW R100GS by Diamond Atelier

Posted on November 15, 2019 by Scott in Adventure, Desert Sled, Enduro, Scrambler. No Comments

Written by Tim Huber.

When Diamond Atelier first burst onto the scene in 2013 with its inaugural BMW R80 project, it was abundantly clear that the two 20-something-year-old German builders possessed a near-prodigious level of talent and skill when it came to customizing motorcycles. And while the world-renowned shop has stepped out of the limelight for the majority of 2019, that doesn’t mean major moves weren’t happening behind closed doors.

SECOND COMING. Diamond Atelier’s ‘Mark II Evo’ BMW R100R Cafe Racer

Posted on November 30, 2018 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

Germany’s Diamond Atelier craft motorcycles so clean you could eat off them. And they don’t do one at a time – the team work and refine a design, gather the parts and build a limited run of them. It’s a clever process that keeps the workshop humming and the price well below frightening…

Munich’s Diamond Atelier have produced some incredible, high-end motorcycles over the last few years. But lately they’ve decided to take a new approach, making a run of customized motorcycles all based around the same platform. This allows them to nut out the quirks and challenges of each build and offer up a motorcycle that’s cost effective but equally bloody gorgeous. The first to receive this treatment is this gorgeous Ducati Scrambler Sixty2.

If there’s one shop that has stood head and shoulders above all others in 2016, it would have to be Munich’s Diamond Atelier. Their plethora of 2016 builds, including the jaw dropping ‘DA#4’ we featured in April, have shone bright across the scene. And although they would be well within their right to rest on their laurels, they have yet another brand new bike to show us. So here’s Diamond Atelier’s Tom Konecny to tell us about this, their amazing ‘DA#7’ BMW R100R, in his own words.

‘DA#4’ BMW RnineT – Diamond Atelier

Evolution always seems slow for the living. They are blissfully unaware of any new creatures rising up, until a swarm of better beasts takes them down as they are going about their daily business. From the post war Hogs on the interstates in the USA to the Motorway Cafes of a Rockin’ ‘60s Great Britain, the commuter class that was previously afraid of us has grown accustomed to these stalwarts of the custom motorcycle scene, as generations of bike builders have followed their founder’s leads. But in an increasingly urbanised world, a new animal has emerged from the city streets of Munich; two of its favourite sons have joined forces to put their signature touches on Bavaria’s most famous brand and created a revolution, codenamed ‘DA#4’. Prepare to witness first-hand the birth of the ‘Neo-Racer’ genre.

NOUVELLE CUISINE. Le French Atelier’s Suzuki DR650 Neo Cafe Racer

Posted on May 10, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer, Racer. 19 comments

The name Atelier has been floating around the custom bike scene for the last few years, usually in reference to our brilliant German friends from Diamond Atelier. But the word is French for a workshop or studio where a master craftsman plies his trade in private, away from the gazing eyes of the public. Le French Atelier is just such a place and where else could they be located than in the city of the Louvre, Paris. Now the three young artists behind the name are ready to unveil their latest chef-d’oeuvre. A radical cafe racer that’s back to the future, it’s a 1992 Suzuki DR650 more than capable of 88mph.

‘Type 10A’ BMW R80 – Auto Fabrica

Genres are something that the human mind seems to crave. Show our primitive brains something that isn’t easily classifiable, categorised or catalogued and we get nervous. But when it comes to bikes, it seems that it’s always the customs that defy the genres that are the ones that outlast them, too. Whether it’s Hazan and his yachting bobbers, or Diamond Atelier and their stanced racing brats, the harder the bikes are to pigeonhole, the better we all seem to like them. So when it came time to post tonight’s bike, we took the fact that we had to stop and think about what to call it as golden mana from heaven. With its not-quite-cafe looks mixed up with a dash of brat and even a smidgen of modern sports bike, we reckon that this, the latest and arguable the best build from London’s Auto Fabrica, is destined for great things. We spoke to Bujar Muharremi, the shop’s co-founder and Creative Director to find out more.

ALL CLASS: BMW R80RT by Sol Invictus Motorcycle Co.

Posted on August 2, 2019 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

Words by Steve Wong.

You know how the story goes… a guy’s father-in-law has an old bike in the shed. The guy wants to do it up, calls a mate and they hack at the seat, chop the frame and pop on some mirrors – bish bosh job done! Well, that’s not how this story goes. Stephen didn’t have much of a bike history but had always admired his father-in-law’s motorcycle laying dormant in the garage. The motorcycle in question was a completely stock 1983 BMW R80RT. Burgundy in colour with full fairings, panniers and the obligatory sheepskin seat cover. It was covered in dust and hadn’t been ridden in over 10 years, so Stephen plucked up the courage to ask his father-in-law if he could have the bike promising to “fix” it up for him.
