6/5/4 Motors based in Stockholm has recently transformed this BMW R75 for a local client, closely following the success of their Ducati 860 GT. The bike was collecting dust in the workshop for the past few years until this build came up. The BMW was unused for a few decades so as expected it did not run too well. The client only specified a few things that were specifically needed and the plan came together rather quickly.IMG_6130-2+copyThe R75 was stripped down to start with to get it back into working condition. The engine was revamped with a new electronic ignition, timing set and all valves adjusted accordingly. A custom-made box under the swingarm holds the new battery to keep everything together. A set of reverse-cone mufflers top it all off. The subframe, a in-house fabrications, was created to be slightly shorter a narrower. As for the rest of the frame, it was de-tabbed and neatened up. A custom seat with nubuck leather was the goto choice for 6/5/4 Motors and works really well with the frames new coat of paint.IMG_6121-2All the switches were dropped for some far more suitable mini switches, wiring located in the MX-style bars. A Motogadget keyless m-lock system has completely overhauled the ignition. Continuing with the minimalistic style Biltwell grips and Daytona Velona speed have been added to the front. All lights have been dropped and replaced by Bates-style head and tail lights as well as mini turn signals.IMG_6181-Redigera+copyThe fenders are a pair of Triumph Bonneville items and Bridgestone Trailwings with hagon shocks completes the modifications. The frame is the only component painted in a combination of turquoise and mint. The rest of the build is black with a few patches of white. The engine was finished of with raw and polished paint scheme. Matte black tank and white pinstripe finish of the colour palette, with the 6/5/4 logo stamped on.654_shoot218614-2

The minimalistic style of the BMW R75 works really well in combination with all the components used. The build is very sophisticated in nature and enforces the appeal that 6/5/4 wanted to portray. I hope to see some great things come out of 6/5/4 with their clean and crisp style to their builds.
