Laid-Back McQueen – Custom BMW R80 Scrambler by Urban Motor

I’ve been checking out Urban Motor work for a long time, revisiting there website on several occasions and always been really impressed with the quality of the motorcycles they build and the design of the website with 360 degree views of all there work. I contacted Peter at Urban Motor who are based in Berlin, Germany about featuring one of his bikes on Moto Verso. After a little wait I was sent two sets of beautiful images so the Custom BMW R80 Scrambler is the first of two posts.

The Laid-Back McQueen is a custom 1985 Custom BMW R80 Scrambler which has been lightened and stripped down before been beautifully put back together by the master craftsman at Urban Motor. To create this urban scrambler style they started with the frame which has been cleaned up and the rear needing a custom hand built frame by Urban Motor. The engine in this bike is from a BMW R90 producing 50 hp and the tank from a R80 G/S finished in a stunning bright BMW process blue which is nice to see on a custom bike rather than a dark matte colour. Urban Motor are at the top of there game and said ” The customer was looking for a scrambler, but found a way of life: McQueen. Light, reduced, handy. For the city as well as the countryside” which sums this bike up perfectly with style and functionality being top of the list. I really like this bike it’s stunning and has moved to the top of my favourite scrambler to date.
