I absolutely love the idea of combining fashion and motorcycle’s together. I’m not talking about a guy rocking some dope Nike’s on a new R1, that is always going to be around. I’m talking about building a vintage BMW and putting together a period correct layered outfit. Now that, is something that will catch everyone’s eye. I found this picture below and thought these two BMW R-series motorcycles and thought they were the perfect example of this. A classic bike with modern inspiration. Now work on that outfit! I would love to see some cafe, brat, etc style meets in New York. It’s the absolute perfect scene for the look!
I really have been slacking on posts here. But, the facebook page is always being updated with the same type of content.
In other news, I have had this love affair with the old BMW R-series motorcycles. I think some of it comes with my soft spot for European machines. But most of it comes from the unique styling and beautiful lines. It gives off a very old world kind of look, which is great because it looks just as good with some modern, more simplistic styling. A great example here of a BMW R75 with a more modern, cafe racer styling and it looks right at home. Not to mention the modern rear end. It really aids to the versatility of the bike overall. This truly is a classic and a must own for an motorcycle enthusiast.
I love when you still see people creating purely from within. Forget all the trends, all the social media, this BMW was created from one person. It’s pretty crazy when could be created when your decisions aren’t altered by influences in social media. Some may call this bike a complete disaster, but I don’t think that’s the point. I think admiring this machine as a unique creation, that will never be build again, is how we should go about it. It does remind me of a terminator, end of the world type bike with a steam punk influence. You just really can’t put your finger on it. But it looks like a beast. But hey, watch the video. He explains his thought process pretty damn well. It sure gets you thinking.
Great video btw, very well done.
