Like a motorcycle straight out of the Steve McQueen movie, “The Great Escape”, the BMW R 75 /5 by CRD Motorcycles, nicknamed “The Challenge”, is one of those magnificent pieces of machinery that will definitely catch the eye of any custom bike guy. This custom motorcycle handles like a dream, both on the road and off, with K&N air filters, updated rear end frame suspension, insane-looking lightweight seat and fenders, and renthal “street fighter” bars.
Hagon nitro rear shocks and a sump that is always protected by a custom designed guard make this model one of the most rugged bikes for off-roading enthusiasts around the world.
Built from a standard 1971 BMW R 75 /5, “The Challenge” is a sharp scrambler that Mad Max would be proud to drive beyond the thunderdome. It took six months to build this beauty, complete with a twin cylinder box that offers 749 cc of power. The multitubular chassis combined with a new set of high performance Continental TKC 80 Twinduro sport tires adds to the retro charm of this impressive motorcycle. “The Challenge” to riding this terrific bike is trying to stay below the speed limit. This Dream Café Racer is simply addictive.
