BMW K75 Tatanka


You need to have it in your fingers in order to build a bike like this. Seems like Frank from Moto Sumisura, Italy, had just the correct set of skills to pull it off. Starting from a very young age, he has managed to not only salvage, but transform quite a few BMWs from total wrecks to things of beauty. This specific one is based on the BMW K75, which Frank stripped to the bare essentials and recreated it in the form of an awesome naked BMW city tracker.

The “Tatanka 75″ keeps its original tank, but has had the rear end totally redesigned, received a custom leather seat and a bunch of other cool minimal features like the headlight and turn signals. The rest of the fairing was trimmed while the wheels were powder-coated black. The end result – a beautiful cult BMW that can put a grin on your face anytime you look at it, let alone ride it.

  1. Love the transition (to naked) but would like to see a bit more finesse in matching the shape of seat to rest of bike (squarish tank & engine.) And, if the gators were a bit shorter the front wouldn’t appear “bow-legged”.
