BMW Bobber. Magnificent!

Superb transformation of a BMW R50/3 and an outstanding photo-shooting

I just can’t stop admiring these photos. I don’t even know what I like the most: the bike, the scenery, the light? Everything seems perfect. 

While a series-production bobber based on the R nineT platform didn’t hit the market yet, an Austrian builder – Titan – made this extraordinary machine based on an old R50/3 and called it “A bavarian Bobber”. 

“ Boxer goes Harley, could have been a brief description for the duty sheet. All technical parts should be the finest, simple and modern. Displacement Advanced. Rear suspension – Nope. But electronic ignition. The framework for this project should be as old as possible, most preferably from World War II.”

So they began building this beauty. They met “Mr. Zink – an outstanding expert on old BMWs”. He convinced them to buy the R50/3 frame he had stored in the attic. The rear suspension had to be removed, a mount for the driveshaft had to be developed. 
Then the guys at Titan bought a R75/7 engine, gearbox, axle drive, fork tubes and spoke wheels. 

They spent 70 hours to manufacture the fork claddings.
