The BMW R90/6 Slow Burn Tuned by ICON 1000

While superbikes and cafe racers have been getting all the attention as of late, Kurt Walter of Portland's ICON 1000 decided to send a little love the BMW R90/6's way, building a custom bike with a lot of attitude. Even in the custom bike world, there are usually obvious patterns to the modifications, but Walter instead followed his own design conventions by heavily modifying the frame and reworking the backbone. With sport custom mounts for the stock gas tank for a low and level ride and a custom exhaust system that flows from 2 to 1 and then back to 2 for a distinctive look and sound, you can immediately tell things are going to be different. Thick and rugged tires were also swapped in with a German rally lamp lighting the way out front, furthering the bike's militaristic vibe along with its black and forest green colorway. Finished with a quilted seat from New Church Moto, a rear cargo rack, and a new mono shock rear suspension system and what we have here is a ton of fun packed within a slick package.
