Bold, minimalistic, and highly stylish: those are the first words that come to mind when pictures of the South Garage cafe modified BMW R75/7 motorcycle pop up. The South Garage Cafe, a Milan-based Italian workshop, created a new look for this iconic motorbike. All have been redesigned.
If you’re looking for an exclusive ride full of character and charm, then we suggest taking a look at these images, and if that doesn’t convince you then keep reading as we’ll take you through some details on this German-Italian project.
The entire build centers around one goal – making this iconic vintage motorcycle into something modern while retaining its classic look. That meant that everyone involved had to be extremely creative in order to preserve all of the good elements found on the original motorcycle while transforming it into something technically advanced.
The result is what you see here – a BMW R75/7 with an ultra-short, steep front end and custom handlebars, all of which make the bike look like it’s ready to conquer any road on this planet. It also comes outfitted with high-quality new parts that are built according to today’s standards but still retain that classic feel due to its color scheme.
Let’s start with the frame which has been left untouched since it looks just right on this machine even though some minor changes have been made so as not to ruin anything by over modifying. The same goes for the fuel tank, fenders, and side covers because they simply fit nicely on the bike without being too big or too small. A wooden saddle with new lights, a revised dial, wood accents, or a fresh tailpipe is all possible modifications. It reintroduces the motorbike to fashion by preserving its distinctive style.
