This unique Cafe Racer is based on the BMW R nine T Racer.
The BMW R nineT is a standard motorcycle made by BMW Motorrad since 2014. It is a retro-styled roadster marketed by BMW to custom builders and enthusiasts as a 'blank canvas for customising'.
This motorcycle is close to new, with only 2000km covered to date. It has been built to a very high standard, including "Option 719 Machined Parts" from BMW Motorrad, a custom exhaust, miniature indicators and bar-end mirrors from Rizoma (Italy) and a tail-tidier from Schnitzer (Germany). Completing the look, it has a full custom paint job, based on the Gulf Racing machines of the '70s. An optional extra is a Bell Bullit helmet (brand new, but in the the original '70s design) in matching Gulf colours. All original parts (e.g. exhaust, rear-end, indicators, mirrors) will be delivered with the motorcycle.
The custom number plate will not be delivered with the motorcycle. The power shown is "HP". If the helmet is wanted the price can be agreed bi-laterally.
Papers are in order and licence is up to date.
Available to view by appointment in Johannesburg.
