BMW Cafe Racer
Another motorcycle of my own design
About this creation
Today I'd like to introduce my new creation. This time I decided to make a light-weight motorcycle - Café racer.

So I have recently bought Moto Cross Bike (42007) with the idea of putting it on my shelf, because I really think it‘s a great set, but then I have decided to modify it. I was inspired to do the cafe racer look, since it‘s my favorite style.

This one is loosely based on a BMW motorcycle. I wanted to create a boxer engine that BMW bikes are known for.
The Engine came out a bit different than what i originally intended because I wanted to give the cylinders a more complex look, but I could not manage to do it, maybe because of the lack of pieces.

This cafe racer may not be as detailed as my previous models. There aren‘t many details on the engine this time, the gearbox takes a good part of the engine space but in the end it turned out pretty well, having a clean and simple outlook of the classic motorcycle era.

Inspiration: BMW R75/5 DS

Features including front and rear suspension, Two speed gearbox (with neutral first and second), cardan shaft, working steering, a V-2 aircooled BMW boxer engine with moving pistons, and a kickstand as well as other smaller details: a big fuel tank, exhaust,a seat, headlight. The handle bars have a quite interesting looking grips, I also added a side mounted license plate.

So let's take a better look.

Thanks for your time guys, this is probably my last moc this year, it was a bomb to build it, I really like the final result, I hope you like it too. Have a great day!

Quoting Henrik Jensen A great BMW motorbike! I like your boxer engine, and amazing that you`ve added a 2-speed transmission. One thing you could improove: It looks a bit empty under the saddle, you could add a battery and some side covers to fill the space.
Thanks for coming by, Henrik, I think you have some great ideas how to improve the bike even more, I had some similar ideas myself, I might work on it, so one more time - thank you :)
