The Italian owner of this machine wanted to be able to use his bike both as a commuter and as a road trip machine. We naturally went for a BMW R80/7from 1981.
He wanted something “battered down” still 100% renewed. There was no hesitation when we traded this vintage Yamaha DT 125 tank to our friend “Sonic Seb”.
The BMY was born!
