Modify motorcycles and scooters has always been an integral part of the two-wheeler scene. For decades, souped-up scooters and mopeds have been part of our everyday lives, and for many motorcyclists, their machines are part of it to upgrade/convert. But not only at Engine can you change something, but also on Styling of the bike so that it no longer looks mass-produced, but has an individual touch. An excellent example of refining a somewhat dusty and stuffy BMW machine into a real gem comes from Australia. There the tuning workshop created Ellaspede, which is based in Brisbane and is known for their special conversions using the best custom bike builders Down Under, a very special one Scrambler version the BMW R 100 R from 1992. We would now like to introduce the bike to you.
Retro scrambler with museum flair!
Ellaspede has taken on a lot to conjure up a special masterpiece out of the BMW. First was the Tank redesigned, and the Seat area behind the saddle were completely renewed by creating a monoposto from the machine. For this purpose the components of the BMW were tightened, and it stopped approximately Spokes made of stainless steel in the rims. These are joined by robust ones Continental TKC 80 tires, which look as if they would not give up immediately even in easy terrain.
Customized Fender, which have been significantly shortened, cover part of the tires, and the rear license plate was attached to the swingarm to achieve a special effect. In matters Arm were also made modifications, and among other things, the Upside-down fork Shortened by 70mm for a lower seating and riding position. For this purpose, they were provided with high-quality ingredients. The front awaits with a newly designed headlights on, which is seven inches in diameter, and in addition there is fog lamps, which are offset and support the main headlight in bad weather conditions.
You can find it at the stern LED turn signals, a vertical Lichtleiste and Ellaspede also installed a unique one Exhaust system as well as special air filter. But of course this didn't happen without the two-cylinder boxer of the bike being thoroughly renovated in order to renovate it according to all the rules of the art modify.
Two-cylinder boxer drives the classic bike!
The air-cooled boxer engine with two cylinders delivers 60 hp and 76 Newton meters of maximum torque in the standard version. After tuning, the performance should are significantly higher, but we have no precise information on this. We are sure that the bike offers a lot of driving pleasure, because there should be enough power in all situations.
