There are times when even (presumably) very highly paid professional vehicle designers who work for some of the world’s most iconic manufacturers should tip their hat to custom designers. One of these times is now, and one of these designers is Diamond Atelier. Its Custom 1994 BMW R100R Classic is something to behold. It’s beefy enough to imagine Arnie riding it in the next Terminator movie, sleek enough to encourage Bond to ditch the Aston Martin – hell, even Batman might want some of this action.
By dropping the front three inches and refinishing the wheels, including strapping on a 6.3” rear tyre, it somehow manages to strike a perfect balance between a vintage feel and timeless contemporary design.
Diamond Atelier rightly has great respect and a strong following in this area, and with the R100R has put a special focus on performance and rideability to ensure it drives as good as it looks. Take a closer look, along with some of its other designs, via the link above.
