A newcomer to the scene, Spain’s Nitro Cycles has unveiled the BMW K100 RS Cafe Racer, representing one of the first customer creations the workshop has completed. Based on a 1986 K100 RS, the build was constructed from the ground up, which necessitated replacing all the engine’s serviceable items and finishing the exterior with fresh paint. Transforming the original “flying brick” aesthetic that underpins BMW’s K series meant borrowing design cues from Ducati’s 1970s half faired SS series, with front fairing and a “monoposto” (single seater) tail end made with fiberglass. Additional details include a vintage style headlight and taillight, clip on bars and a digital speedo mounted in the center of the fairings windshield. Improved handling comes courtesy of a Hagon rear shock, as well as adapted 4-into-1 headers that now hold an Akrapovic muffler.
