How you do bring a touch of gangster to the relatively unassuming 1983 BMW R80? Give it to Blaz Sustarsic, owner of ER Motorcycles, and let him work his magic. The end result is this – the BMW R80 Mobster – a bike that’s been stripped down and reassembled in a design that is ridiculously awesome. The front forks and numerous other parts are from a BMW R50/5 and an R69S, the tires are Coker Diamonds at 4.50-18″, the clip-ons are Tarozzis, and the exhaust and leather seat are both made in-house. Add to that a svelte bronze paint scheme, a Motogadget Classic speedo, custom front and rear fenders and a rare sport “Schorsch Meier” fuel tank, and the BMW R80′s transformation to a fully-fledged gangster is complete.
