1978 BMW R100/7 Bomber by KSS

BMW R100/7 1978 bobber

Kevils Speed Shop guys build amazing BMW based cafe racers. Their style is absolutely unique and each bike amazes more than the other. Just check out these few featured here before: BMW R100/7 OldTimer and BMW R80 Azure.

KSS team works mostly with cafe racers, however surveying their work you can surely find some variety.

BMW R100/7 Bomber is one of the earlier KSS projects and the first Hardtail BMW Bobber the guys made. As Kevin said, he’d been asked many times when they were going to build Hardtail BMW Bobber but for some reason, it was always delayed.

Bobber BMW by Kevils

A few years ago the guys teamed up with Crobba Customs and Clive Cook – a commercial generator engineer in the past who now makes motorcycle parts and sells them on the Internet. The team visualized the bike as low, chunky, heavy looking Bobber with two wide wheels.  The guys also wanted to give ‘Bomber’ some authentic features and at the same time make the design diffent from anything known before.

the engine

BMW R100/7 got a refurbished 1000cc engine. The frame is reworked so the bike would seem ‘stretched’. Kevils billet top yoke allowed to lower the front of Bomber. Wide Avon tires gave some aggression to the look and the oblate tank allowed to minimize top end visual weight passing it to the wheels. From another angle, the bike looks a little different, though.

Heavy wheels, massive BMW 1000cc boxer and the rest is quite inconspicuous – that’s Bomber – a KSS’s interpretation of bobber. Honestly, I like the bike a lot. What do you think of this work?
