This is the first bike out of the new garage Fuel Bespoke Motorcycles based in Barcelona, Spain. The bike started life as a stock BMW R100 RT, Karl then spent 3 months transforming the bike into what you see here, a beautiful vintage single seat scrambler. The bike produces 70hp from it’s opposed twin 979cc engine, the total weight is just under 260kgs and it has a listed top speed of 180kph, although you might be pressed to manage that on the knobblies.
We’re looking forward to more from Fuel Motorcycles, this is the style of motorcycle that I personally favour the most, the cut back, functional and chrome-free urban belter.
