Sometimes, when deciding on colour schemes for custom builds, it pays to 'think outside the box'. That's exactly what Graham, who commissioned this build, did.
Finished in 'Old English White' and 'Sage Green', brown leather two tone seat and matching leather grips, it looks fab and really fits with the old school scrambler style that this '79 R100 now sports.
Of course, that's just the finishing touches to this comprehensive build.
The engine was completely re-furbished and now breathes through new Mikuni carbs, Ram Air filters, stainless aquablasted headers and short reverse cone mega silencers. Under the sleek, vented top engine cover hides a new lightweight lower geared starter motor and Motogadget M Unit that controls all of the upgraded electrics that work through the new bespoke, lightweight wiring loom.
Satin black was chosen for the de-tabbed, freshly powder coated frame, new SRC scrambler subframe, rims and hubs. Stainless spokes and Heidenau K60 dual purpose tyres finish off the wheels that sit inside the lightweight brushed alloy mudguards.
'Fat Bar' handlebars with billet alloy clamps were drilled to take the wiring from the Motogadget push button switches to give a clean, uncluttered look and an Acewell speedo/tacho gives you all the information you need.
A new set of fully adjustable 'piggy back' shocks and re-furbished forks soak up the bumps and control the ride.
You might see Graham down Poole Quay bike night on his new steed sometime or enjoying the back roads of Dorset. He's going to have fun on it that's for sure.
