Austrian duo Vagabund Moto is frequently mentioned around here and with good reason–they produce some outstanding bikes. Super minimalist and clean, their customs are both handsome to look at and utterly functional. Case in point, their latest Custom BMW R80 RT Motorcycle.
The bike, dubbed ‘V09,’ started life as a 1992 R80 RT tourer that had little use, which meant the BMW workhorse of an engine didn’t need too much work. The bodywork has been stripped off, a custom-made subframe has been added, the tank modified, the forks shortened by 60 mm, and a skinny new solo seat with beautiful upholstery has been placed at the rear.
Complete with top-shelf parts (Grimeca master brake cylinder, Motogadget bar-end turn signals, Continental ContiRoadAttack tires, K&N filters, etc.) and a striking paint job, this short, aggressive bike is sure to bring endless grins of the face of its new owner.Learn More From Vagabund Moto
