Every year the resort town of Biarritz on France’s Basque coast hosts the Wheels and Waves event, rife with art, surfing and cool bikes. In the latter category, a prime example was the unveiling of the BMW Concept Lac Rose, a modern interpretation of BMW's iconic desert racers of the mid-1980s, in particular the special-edition BMW R 80 G/S series production bike of the 1985 Dakar Rally. It's made almost exclusively with BMW original standard parts, featuring a modified seat, enlarged R nineT tank, specially painted rear frame, tail with rear-mounted toolkit and more. Watch the BMW Concept Lac Rose in action in the video below.
