The Grey Hound: Epicurial’s BMW R100RT

Owner, drawing and general inspiration: Thomas (Epicurial) / Works: Fred (BF Motorcycles)

The R100 is the latest addition to the pack. It was brought to life thanks to our friends over at BF Motorcycle in Lyon. This one got a dramatic rejuvenating treatment, going from a highway-ready, champagne-colored “dad bike” to an agile street tracker. About 60 kilos of aluminium and plastic were harmlessly removed, and they say that on the third day, rust had all gone.

Its dramatic design is unforgiving and keeps her off the dirty paths. The initial drawing took a good deal of inspiration from the previous Epicurial bikes: the Bonnie’s general silhouette, the R80’s tank shape and the R75/5’s legacy and cool features. The rest was thought through during the process, up until completion.

Work started by removing all the unnecessary equipment: fairing, saddle and case mounts, plastic covers, handlebar and all electronics. Fork was lowered first to give an idea of its future general shape. Battery was placed underneath the gearbox to lighten the motor area and a short 2-level seat was custom-built and hand-fitted with brown veal leather. Rear shock absorbers were tilted forward, newly installed short black exhausts were slightly oriented upwards and Dunlop Trailmax tires were installed to enhance the sense of “static dynamism”.

Motor was in a good general state and was only opened and overhauled a few weeks ago to make sure summer days won’t be spoiled! A complex shade of non-metallic grey paint was eventually applied to the tank and headlight, while all the rest, including wheels and small parts were simply epoxied in black.

  

General electronics, including wire, were simplified. Led indicators were placed on the sides of the seat and headlight mount, and a rear light was installed on a custom-built license plate mount on the rear’s lower right side. All of these now converge back to a discreet Motogadget Tiny meter located behind the handlebar, a modern feature for a modern look! And not only because they already looked damn good on the R75, two Renault Alpine Marshal spotlights were also fitted on the side mounts of the bike in case of harsh weather conditions!

The R100 has been Thomas’ daily bike for the past year and ½, yet it’s only been in its new livery for a few months, and she cannot wait to go see the ocean!

  • The ED due to that surgery can be either temporary or permanent. Use these circumspectly however, because they may lower blood sugar levels, that’s an undesirable effect in males whose blood sugar are properly balanced.
