BMW 'French Bobber'

BMW 'French Bobber'

The owner of this machine came and see us to convert his BMW R60/2 into whatever we would want to... His only request was to have an electric starter.

We agreed on installing a 800cc boxer engine into this frame. But we changed the whole ignition system by a TCI/CDI one. Just for the fun of it...

We called it "French Bobber" because what could be more French than a German/English unexpected marriage?
